Arting It Up: 29 Faces

29 faces challenge

Participating in 29 Faces is one of the best things I’ve done for my creativity. The practice of focusing on one face every day has made a huge positive impact on my art. I’ve even made drawing a face part of my daily art routine.

During the month of February the challenge is live again. It’s hosted at
http://29faces.blogspot.com. I hope you join in the fun!!

Below are a few of my most recent faces. I love this creative routine!

Arting It Up with 29 Faces!

29 faces

In September, I decided to participate in the 29 Faces Challenge by Ayala Art!

It was so awesome. The amount of growth from drawing one or two faces a day was really amazing! I made a Flipagram showing my progress:

(omg, who just inserted a video into a blog post? this girl!)

I had such a wonderful time that I’ve decided to make it a part of my daily art practice. YAY!

I’ve also decided to participate in Art Every Day Month by the awesome Leah at Creative Every Day during the month of November. Super excited!

I’ve always loved making things, especially messes! This new focus on creativity has really helped me through some tough issues we’re facing. Being creative, making art (and messes), brings me such a unique type of joy.

I’d love to know what is bringing you joy!

My love of Grumpy Cat & Sharknado will never fade, but I’ve also been really into making mixed media art lately. It is an extension of my love of scrapbooking, but kicked up a bunch. I can do anything with this style, no matter what I have on hand or what my mood is. It’s pretty epic stuff with a no rules/no wrong kind of awesome that makes my heart really freaking happy!

I’m a huge Effy Wild fangirl. I’m taking both her Book of Days class & her Moonshine: Mother class. So much awesome! She suggested participating in the 29 Faces Challenge & I went for it! So much win!

I’ve grown so much in such a short amount of time. Practice & surrender really help! Here are some of my faces.

This is such a happy way to end my days! I’m sharing it with some of the monsters, too! I feel an after school art day coming on! Yay!
