“I cannot draw,i cannot draw, i cannot draw” has been something i have been saying to myself for as long as i can remember. Clare Lloyd is the Guest Designer over at Paper Artsy this week and she did a little video to show us how to draw a face.
I drew along with the video because if i had watched it first the “i cannot draw” mantra would have been playing in my head, this way i had no idea what would happen, this is what happened.
My first whimsical face.
There is so much wrong with it but it is what it is. I didn’t have all the Fresco Paints that Clare used. Don’t have any basic pencils so used Inktense Pencils without adding any water, hence the odd colours on her cheeks. She really looks like she has a 10 o’clock shadow lol.
Clare used plain card to create a covering for the whimsical girl, so i did the same except i used a piece of mop up paper from spraying some Dylusions sprays. After i had cut out the shape stamped over the top with the bubble stamp from Paper Artsy stamp plate HP1010. Coloured the circles using Posca Pens.
The flower corner and the tiny flower stamps are from a very old stamp set, ‘In My words’ by a company called Fancy Pants, they are from 2008 and not available any more. Used Archival Black ink to stamp these.
Hand doodled round the smaller flower stamp using Sakura Glaze Pens and Posca Pens.
The final tag all assembled, added words from JOFY 11 stamp plate.
Added a white border which maybe i shouldn’t have, still learning how to shadow/highlight shapes… I might add a couple of small flowers as the Tag is lacking that finishing touch.
Hope you like my whimsical girl, i might just keep trying to ‘draw faces’ as really need to improve!
Thanks for dropping by, looking forward to your comments which are all very much appreciated.
