Hi everyone,
It has been a long time since my last post but I have been working on a few things in my Dylusions journal that I wanted to share with you. As some of you will know prior to taking a break from blogging I was starting to experiment with drawing faces and I have been including figures and faces in my mixed media work.Here are a couple of my latest pages.

Here is a close up of her face.She is painted in acrylics and I have outlined her features with black Derwent Inktence pencil..The background is made up of layers of book paper,stamps, acrylic paint and gesso. The butterflies were from my stash and were a free download image that I downloaded a while ago

I am in the early stages of painting  faces.and I am really pleased with her. I love her little round face and I think she looks like she has a personality.

I know I have been away for a while but I hope my regular followers have not forgotten me. I welcome any comments and will be back again soon with more journal pages.


  1. Thank you so much for your visit - it's great to see you back in the land of blog! I hope you are much better now and not getting any pain in your back and neck. I love the work you've been doing - they are absolutely fabulous and certainly don't look like you are in the early stages of painting faces! I love faces that show character and feelings and I think you've captured that so beautifully.

  2. i agree, she does have personality and style. thank you for visiting my blog and for the kind comments. i find that i am spotty at posting on my blog. before i know it, time has gone and no post. i hope the 29 face challenge keeps me on track :)
