29 faces,an intro

I am beyond excited to be taking part of 29 faces. I was interested in participating the moment that I heard about it. I’m kinda prone to drawing faces anyway…I do want to work more on bodies later(hands are my downfall) but this is a great challenge for me right now. 🙂

I have an altered book all prepped and ready to go for the challenge.

I picked this up at Goodwill as part of a 5 for a dollar book sale they had going on. It was lucky coincidence because I was there in order to find a book that I could alter. I was able to walk away with two books to alter and three books to read.Which made me all kinds of happy. (The kid’s books were 10 for a dollar which made my littles all kind of happy.)

Here’s a sample of what I’m starting with:

Not all of the pages are prepped but I’ve torn out some pages,glued and sewed all of the rest and I feel like I’m a good starting point.

I feel like I’ve learned a bunch since I started on my art journal journey as the girl who dint realize that pages would tear if you punched holes in them, tried to hold them together with binder rings and added any sort of weight to them.

(I am talking about my Smash/art/write journal which you can find out about here. )

I still have a lot to learn but I feel closer to getting there anyway.

So glad to get started with my face tomorrow and happy to see everyone elses too. 🙂 Hope y’all don’t mind more frequent updates.
