Firstly, the 29 Faces Art Challenge finishes today. I've had a great time trying to draw faces. It's been quite a journey but a great experience. Looking back at the faces from the 29 days I'd say there was some improvement in my faces..........obviously still a long way to go but as they say practice makes perfect.

I want to share this face with you (#21) I'm really pleased with the way she came out and hence I have made her into a greetings card - I took a photograph of the original piece and altered it a little with an online editing software. The original is painted with Faber Castell Polychromo pencils. The orange and large green hearts are digi stamps from Handmade Harbour.
In a previous post I shared some air dry fimo clay items I'd made hearts, elephant, key and a couple of mutilated gingerbread men. Well today I finished making up the gingerbread men. I painted them with acrylic paint and added some wire and beads. These are for trading on ATCsforALL.
Finally I went to the Happy Stampers Festival at Portsunlight. The village hall is where a collection of Rubber Stamp companies come to sell their stamps and do demos on how to use certain products. I ended up buying a couple of unmounted stamps, a couple of stencils (these seem to be favour of the month), some modge podge sticks which are used with a glue gun and can be melted straight into molds and a few other little bits.
I made these mount slide art pieces today using the rubber stamps I bought yesterday. The mounts are a sizzix die. I've painted them with Derwent inktense water colour pencils added some fabric flowers and butterfly also painted with the inktense pencils.

Well I think I'm up to date.
Hope you have a wonderful week creating some art.
