Happy New Year to you.
And welcome 2022.
It is hard to believe that 2022 has begun. I don't really know where 2021 went to because it certainly seemed like it "blew" in and "blew" out quicker than I could write this sentence.
And not only is today the start of a new year, but because it is a new month, it is time for a new challenge and a new host at Art Journal Journey.
Thank you Valerie for all your lovely art and fun topic last month. I had a lot of fun adding doors to my art and drawing houses. Thanks to all of you who joined in also.
This month I happen to be the new host.
I have a lot of rubber stamps, and one of my goals last year was to use some of the older forgotten stamps. This was part of a process to help me decide what I should purge and what I should keep in a big clean out. I still haven't cleaned anything out, but one thing I noticed (while going through my stamps over the 12 months of 2021) was that I have lots of different face images in my collection. That inspired me to come up with this month's challenge theme:
Let's Face It
This month you should use a face or two on your journal page. It could be a human face, an animal face, or a face on something that doesn't usually have one like smiling flowers or a mustached mushroom. It might not even be a living thing, like a clock face. Or perhaps instead of an actual face you have another interpretation of this topic. (Like me when I was trying to motivate myself last month to write a stack of Christmas cards, and I thought, let's face it, I need to get this done before the holidays have ended.)
You can stamp a face, draw a face, use a digital face or cut out a face from something printed. You could also paint a face or stencil a face. However you can think to add a face, add one or more. It doesn't matter the size of the face or whether you include one face or multiple faces. If you're going for a symbolic interpretation of the challenge phrase, then somehow describe that on your journal page.
Here's my first page for the challenge.
