Okay, so I've seen this amazing challenge at 7 Dots Studio, and found some time to be able to play along. I love their papers.... and have you seen the new releases?
So this challenge, it is called 'Parts of Your Face'. Different huh? And very cool!!
I've seen a lot of layout entries with faces, and they are totally gorgeous, but I really wanted to try and find another, more original way to express this theme. Then I remembered some of the Prima Relics & Artefacts by Sandra Evertson, which happen to be faces and parts of faces and which, I have been conveniently hoarding - it was meant to be :)
Here is my entry for their challenge:
I chose the lips to be part of the face I wanted to express, so only coloured those in and, of course, applied a gloss... what can I say, typical gal!! Loved how the paint, when applied, created a natural feathering at the edges.
I chose the Lost and Found collection and used the 6 x 6 collection as well as the Tag sheet to build up the background. The the Lost and Found Elements sheet, and Words sheet.
I have a set of stamp from 7 Dots (Thoughts Keeper), which I used for the background with a white pigment ink
I loved the idea of using the speech bubble to hold the word/title 'Inherited', as of course, where do we get our features from?!! And with the part I chose it just fitted perfectly! It seemed to just fall in to place :)
So I would love to enter this over at 7 Dots Studio for the challenge Parts of Your Face
