Background for my Faces class

After watching the second video for my Faces class, I made a background on which to draw a face as my focal point. I am a bit anxious about drawing on it, but feel sure Paulette will explain it in terms that I can deal with.

I almost made my background with teal and purple (my absolute favorite color combo), but instead was thinking Spring and decided green and mauve was the way to go. At first I thought it was a bit too busy, but have decided that I like it and I think my face will be covering much of it anyway.

I think that sometime today I will get the backgrounds prepped on the ATCs for swaps that I am participating in that have deadlines in mid-April. One is to be 3 hand-drawn art supplies and the other is to be yellow pages themed.

I will post them as I get them started.

I am not feeling very well today. My head is full, my throat is sore and I am feeling overall wimpy. I think I just need to stay focused on something other than how I feel - or maybe after I do a little bit of art, I will take a nap.

See you later....


  1. Love your background. Hope you don't get what hubby has - he's been laid low a while now hasn't he. Sending healing thoughts your way.

  2. I've been wanting to take one of Paulette's classes--love her style. Have fun with yours!
