face #26

I’m not sure I like the background on this one but I do like how her face turned out. Still, my one-liner doesn’t do her justice.

face #24 and some doodles

I can’t say that I’ve ever seen a movie with Theda Bara but I do know who she is. I always picture her with the heavy eye makeup.

So here is my one-liner for today. I can’t believe it’s the last week of the 29 Faces challenge!! Doing a face a day makes the month just fly by!

And I have to show you one more thing I did yesterday. This was an exercise for Year of the Spark!

The assignment was to:

  • Make some marks on four index cards.
  • Cut them into 4 pieces.
  • Then choose one piece of each card and complete a doodle.

I had a piece of scrap graph paper so I used that instead of index cards.

Using some alphabet stamps, I stamped on my papers. Overlapping the letters just to make marks.

Then I cut up my papers. Here are my “before” and “after” images.

It was so fun because each drawing just sort of emerged! I let my pencil fill in the blanks!

“All right, Mr. DeMille, I'm ready for my close-up.”

Does anyone remember that movie??

faces #21 and #22

I’m posting early today so I don’t forget. Yesterday just got away from me. I had too many things to do on my day off and before I knew it, it was time for bed!

So here are my one-liners for #21 and #22 for 29 Faces challenge.

I don’t know much about this silent film star but I would guess that he mostly played villains! He just has that look about him.

Photos can be found in this book.

My apologies to Mary Anderson. Wonky eyes and a HUGE mouth!

And apparently, she has the measles, too!

Finally!! A profile that I like!

Plus, I like this gelli print … the colors look nice together, I think.

face #18

I tried to use a calligraphy pen to add some drama to my one-liner.

Now I think it’s too much drama ☺

Oh, well.

This actress is really much prettier in her photo!! But I like how this one-liner turned out anyway. The gelli print was done on an old map which gives it a nice effect (I think).

Check out other people making faces this month at the 29 Faces challenge.
