I have been toying with the idea of doing 29 faces again. There is a possible trip in September which would make it hard to do but I think I will still give it a whirl. I probably won't get 29 done but I will get a lot more practice in than if I didn't do this. If you want to participate you can find information on the 29faces blog. So here is my first face.
I had those wonderful mono prints I made with my gelli plate on Friday and created some journal pages with them. This first one had all the same color families. I put strips of several pages together. SInce its so subtle it didn't photograph well. I painted the the face on and old book page and then used gelatos for the hair and dress.
On this one I pulled strips from two different color ways. I added some of Tim Holts tissue paper at the bottom right and then colored in with gelatos. The image is one from the King Tut collection that has always been a favorite of mine.
