The second week was to incorporate a selfie into our planners, a challenge that, I know, took many of us out of our comfort zones. Most of us like to remain behind the camera! Maybe if I was still in my 20's, I'd be happy to pull the old 'duck face' in front of my phone! However, with the hundreds of filter apps available on smart phones these days, I was confident I could filter the cr@p out of my photo to suit my needs. Some of you may know I'm not good with colour (although, I seem to be getting a little better of late), so I stuck to muted tones for this one. I did want to add a splash of colour, but the layout I had wasn't really calling for it, so I just went with what I was comfortable with. Again, I think I did a fairly accurate representation of myself. Grungy, yet feminine. I'm looking forward to Week Three's challenge now!
I've also been curious to learn how to do these beautiful faces I see so many ladies do. I was never into doing faces, but recently I've found myself very intrigued with them. Especially the faces and girls that Suzi Blu and Jane Davenport do. So, I've been practicing a little in a little Moleskine book. I started off with just grey pencil sketching and shading, then moved onto a colour pencil version and my most recent is more of a mixed media version. She isn't finished yet, but I was working on her eyes today, so I thought I would post a close up shot. When she's all done, I'll post a full image of her.
And that's what's kept me out of mischief this past week or so! As always, thank you all so much for stopping by my blog and I hope to see you back here again soon!
