“one-line” face

Hello and happy Tuesday! I´ve been doing #the100dayproject for over 70 days now and in between the drawn tags I also did a few experiments in my Ranger art journal. Here is one of them – a “one-line” face:

I drew this one on a page I had pressed some wet Nuvo Embellishment mousse residue onto and then just using my Stabilo all black pencil drew a face never lifting the pencil from the paper.

It turned out very masculine and I really like how the lips and eye areas look like. I didn´t want to add anything else to the page (for now). Maybe later I might add some journaling, stenciling or paint details to it, but I am still just admiring it as it is.

Wishing you a lovely day!

December Stencil Challenge – STAMPlorations

Hello everyone and welcome to the December Stencil Challenge reveal!! I am still crazy creating in my art journal. I just cannot seem to stop.. Here is what I created for this months STAMPlorations Stencil Challenge:

It´s a stenciled and misted background created with lots of Distress Inks and my stencil line stencils and in addition I gave a try to one-line-face-drawing (well, kind of one-line). It didn´t always work out as I planned, but I managed to create a cluster of faces onto the page. This is something we also played with at Louise Nelson´s class at Okka Treff last year.

I love the randomness of these faces! I just could not leave them without colour, as I originally planned, so I added some colour to the eyes and lips at least. And I also sneaked a small journaling onto the page. It says: “Fear is a choice” and it is so true! Danger is real, but fear is always a choice we make.

So this is my take for the December Stencil Challenge. Remember, you can always create anything you want, just as long as your project features stencils and as long as you play by the rules. Like always, there a prizes to be won – so go check out the other girls inspiration projects and grab your stencils and give them a play! Have fun!!!

Happy stenciling,
xxx, Sanna
