Hello and happy Sunday! Today I´m shortly sharing the next faces of my personal #the100dayproject2021 challenge. Like mentioned before I´m drawing a face a day on a pre-prepared, die cut tag. If you want to follow me face drawing journey „live“, you should follow my Instagram account (here). And you can also watch the videos directly on my YouTube channel (here).

My take on face drawing is an artsy, abstract one. I am not trying to learn how to draw realistic faces, because at the moment a) it is not my interest and b) I don´t think I am very good at that type of drawings. But this type of mixed media face drawing just interests me very much and I also enjoy it a lot!

I´ve still got quite a few days to go until day 100, but it has been lots of fun so far. So be sure to come back to take a look of the next 5 :). I wish you all an amazing week!!!

Happy crafting,

#the100dayproject – Days 11-15

Hello and happy Wednesday! Today I´m again stopping by to share my next faces drawn on tags for my personal #100daysoffaces 2021 challenge. If you want to see them go live every day, then you should follow my Instagram account for the daily posts. I´ll share them here on my blog in groups with links to the videos.

Day 11

This tag is die cut from white carstock with a STAMPlorations tag die and I´ve added a hue of indian ink as a stripe on it. After that I just drew the face with Posca´s very quickly and added some shading.

Day 12

For this tag I´ve again used white cardstock, then die cut it with a STAMPlorations tag die (see product list at the end of this post) and applied green and yellow spray ink onto it. The faces are again drawn and coloured with Posca pens.

Day 13

This tag is die cut from a woodgrain paper and then covered partly with white gesso. On top of that I´ve sketched a face with a pencil and added shadows with a black Posca.

Day 14

For this tag I´ve firs played with my gel plate from Gelli Arts with acrylic paints and my stencils. Next I´ve drawn a face with Neocolor 2 pens. The splatters were added with a water tank brush in the end.

Day 15

This is a grey cardstock paper, die cut with a STAMPlorations tag die. Then painted partly with black paint and after that drawn and coloured using Neocolor 2´s again.

As always, go and see the short videos for each tag on my YouTube channel. You´ll find the link to a particular tag always immediately under the photo. Hope you enjoy them!

Have a great day!

#the100dayproject – Days 5-10

Hello and happy Monday! Today I´m stopping by to share my next faces drawn on tags for my personal #100daysoffaces 2021 challenge. If you want to see them go live every day, then you should follow my Instagram account for the daily posts. I´ll share them here on my blog in groups with links to the videos.

Day 5

For this tag I first die cut a piece of white cardstock with the STAMPlorations tag die and then misted the background with Dina Wakley Media Gloss Sprays and then drew the face in a few very simple lines using a Stabilo all black pen. For shading I used a water tank brush. That´s it!

Day 6

This tag is a Dina Wakley Media white tag that I pre-treated with acrylic paints and stencil using a Gelli Arst gelli plate. On top of that I drew a face and added colour with Neocolor 2 pens.

Day 7

This tag is die cut with a Tonic Studios nesting tag die and then misted with Dylusions Spray Inks in red and blue tone. After that I drew the face lines with a black Posca pen and added colour with Neocolor 2 pens.

Day 8

For this tag I first die cut it from grey cardstock with a Tonic Studios tag die and then added a splatter of black paint onto it. On the black painted area I then drew a face with a white Signo Uni-ball pen and added colour with Neocolor 2´s again.

Day 9

For this tag I had added Distress Oxides onto a white STAMPlorations tag die die cut piece as a background colour detail and then drew the face lines with a black Posca pen and added colour using various shades of Posca´s.

Day 10

Finally for my day 10 tag I first die cut it with a STAMPlorations tag die into shape from grey cardstock, then added spritzes and splatters with Dina Wakley Media Gloss Sprays. I „saw“ a face in the form (see the video for that!) and drew what I saw and it ended up like a Pocahontas or Walt Disneys Hiawatha´s sister kind of face. Drew with Posca´s.

So these were days 5-10. There is more coming. Remember always to check out the videos – you´ll find the links to them always under each photo. They are very short, so they won´t take too much time ;-).

Have a great week!

#the100dayproject2021 – first 4 days of faces

Hello everyone! Inspired by Dee Dee Catron I took the leap of faith and joined in for my first ever #the100dayproject this year. I had been following amazing fellow crafters do this challenge year after a year and admiring their awesome videos and results, but I was always too scared to try. I was afraid I wouldn´t have the time or it would be too overwhelming. But this year I thought: oh well, I might as well try it. What is the worst that could happen? That I wouldn´t succeed? And? Who cares? It´s me challenging myself here!! I am not competing with anyone here :)!

So far I´ve finished day 10/100 or more, so I´m still going strong. If you haven´t seen what I do, hop over to my Insta Account. I´ll be sharing a result/tag every day there. I´ll gather them together here on my blog a bit later for you to see. So if you want to follow „live“, make sure to click that follow button on my Insta :).

So this was „Day 1“

A „one-line“ face drawing on a pre-misted, die cut tag. Colored and drawn with Posca pens. For this video, go to my YouTube channel HERE.

This was „Day 2“

This tag was precut with a STAMPlorations die, then painted black and after that I drew the same face, like on day one, but this time with my WRONG HAND (in my case the right hand ;-)..). And again used Posca pens. Here is the video!

This was „Day 3“

For this tag I pretreated the background with Gesso, then I sketched a face on a piece of paper (very simple lines!) and after that I blocked my view and drew the face again without looking (from muscle memory/blind) onto the gessoed tag. This is so much fun and thru practise you will get better and better. Also, the results sometimes look so cool too!!! Here is the video for this tag.

And finally, this was „Day 4“

For this tag I had pre-misted the tag with spray ink in a lime green tone. I then took a good look at the tag and tried to see a form in the colorsplatter. And I did! I then sketched the face that I saw in the splodge of colour and added some detail with Posca Pens. Here is the video for this tag!

I hope you enjoyed the first 4 days of me sketching simple faces. I am by no means someone who considers herself as a talented face drawer!! So I´m just practising on a level that feels good for me and thus this 100 day challenge of sketching faces on tags works so good for me. I don´t set the bar too high and I am not expecting perfect results – if I did that, I wouldn´t have to start at all. I am just having fun and if you enjoy seeing what I do, do follow me on Insta for more :).

Have a great day!!
