Painting Faces rather than Going Places

Hi Everyone!  I hope you have all had a great weekend!  We've had another stormy few days here so the best place to be in home inside safe and dry.  Nothing quite like the hail storms of last Sunday here, however other areas have had some heavy and huge downpours of hail.

So it was a quiet weekend here, as A was on respite and Rod and I took the opportunity to do pretty much nothing - which translates to I had time in my craft room.  I was admiring all the wonderul art dolls over on ATC's for all, so decided to give these a go which also enabled me to practice my face drawing and painting skills.  I used a mix of Gelatos, Watercolor Pencils, Big Brush Markers, Distress Stains, White Gel Pen and Collage to create them.

Here's a couple I made ..........but first let me warn you they are addictive.

These ones are the first of these types of art dolls I have ever made, you may notice that there are the Zodiac Symbols on them for Taurus, Aries and Gemini as I was going to make them for a Swap over at AFA, the colors of the dolls clothing are the lucky colors for those symbols too.  Then I thought I would make them more goddess like.

So I made goddesses for Pieces, Aries, Taurus and Gemini.

These were such fun and a great way to pass a few hours playing with my paints and scraps, which got me thinking what other types I could make.

So more faces will lead to other places.  For a full look at just what doll this face belongs to you will have to check over on the Altered Pages Blog on Wednesday for my DT Post where all will be revealed.
