My Little Faces Journal Continued and Completed

 Hi everyone.  It's the last Thursday of January. Can you believe it?

There's still some time to join us at Art Journal Journey before the month ends next Monday. You probably know the challenge is Let's Face It, hosted by me. I am linking today's pages up to Art Journal Journey.

Today's art is some more pages from my little expressions journal. You might remember I said that I decided to use only playful more cartoon like faces on these little 4x4  inch pages. All white pages are colored with watercolor paints first.

In this first piece, she's the girl who's always there, every time you turn around. Maybe she's even the waitress at your favorite local breakfast spot. 

I hope this girl in the page above isn't worried about something too big. She might need a copy of a self help guide like Don't Sweat the Small Stuff (if that's still even published).

This girl in the above page looks so sad, holding her heart in her hands. I don't know who disappointed her, but hopefully she will be over it soon.

And this girl is  the total opposite of the broken hearted one above. She is going crazy! She is having a wild night on the town, pre-covid of course.

And here's a couple of pages on a black background, starting with this witch who can't believe she has pink skin.

Of course we must celebrate the true heroes of this pandemic. They may not be movie stars, but they should be for all they have been through and all they do for us.

And last for today, the girl who's eyes are bigger than her stomach.

If you missed my earlier pages and are curious, you can find them  at these 2 links:

  I hope this week is treating you well. Thanks so much for visiting. It is always appreciated.

Who knew there could be so many expressions to reveal the mood so precisely? I think I will go for the first one. Flirty and playful sounds good to me. I am a guy what do you expect?! Everyone single one is precious though. Well done, Erika, hugs, David

I'm loving this little journal and it looks like you are spending a LOT of time on it. Each of these girls have attitude, some happier than others. The last one is great because of the letters you chose for the sentiment and of course the cake. But my fav is the Hero. We all need these unsung heroes. Thanks for such amazing inspiration you have given us at AJJ using your theme, dear Erika.

Oh Erika another fun set of joyful pages, this is going to be a good journal to look at in the future, when you might need to escape and have a smile at these little people.
Stay safe

I often think my eyes are bigger than my tummy but even I cannot think of devouring that cake above.
What a delightful set of faces you have given to us - some of which I recognise and some which you may have drawn yourself. I love the dancing girl - if only I could go on a rave and dance the night away. Don't think my body would take it these days but how I used to love to dance. Flirty looks just that - a real flirty girl.
Hugs, Neet xx
