Draw a Face

        Be Your Own Kind of Beautiful...
Update...October monthly top pick at Stamplorations Mixed media Challenge..Anything but a card...Absolutely Delighted, thank you so much x
This canvas is way out of my comfort zone but I wanted to challenge myself to draw a face....
I haven't done a canvas before and I haven't drawn a face before.
I was determined and that in itself was my challenge.

I used PaperArtsy Stamps, TH Stencil with Finnabair embossing paste.
The eye, mouth and face is free-hand drawn.

I just love Lindy's stamp gang sprays and use them a lot.
I have used their challenge this month as the inspiration for my colour choice.
Lindy's Stamp Gang Store
Sprays Used......
I have used all of the colours in the inspiration board on my canvas.
I have used the sprays on the background, drying in between the layers.
I water-coloured the flowers directly from the spray bottles using a brush and 
onto Water colour card. They blended really well.
I also hi-lighted the canvas using a brush and
Grab a Guy Gold which is a great Gold colour.
I really enjoyed doing my first canvas.

I am entering the canvas into....
Stamping the text on the face, the sentiment and all the flowers
Flourish stencil

Your drawing is fantastic Mac Mable. I draw faces many times but they all go into the bin, lol. I think the colors you chose are perfect for this special drawing and the blossoming flowers are spectacular. I love them all.
