Over on Kim Dellow's blog she hosts a weekly Friday event called Show Your Face. I've managed to join in a few times previously but for the month of August Kim has asked that we draw a face inspired by somebody else.
So a while ago I discovered Nika on YouTube - she does some wonderful mixed media/art journal style videos - but I just loved this recent one of hers and decided to have a go myself at doing a face in her style. Here is Nika's video:
So here is my go at creating a face inspired by Nika:
I used Paperartsy Fresco paints in the following colours: Caribbean Sea, Prawn, Tangerine Twist, Little Black Dress, Snowflake and Limelight.
I drew her with a Stabilo All Black pencil and used stencils by Paperartsy and TCW. Also I used a Lin Brown stamp from ELB15.
Her lips and eye were coloured using watercolour pencils and the splatters were done with a white Posca pen.
Loads of people have linked up to play along over on Kim's blog so please do take a look at some of the wonderful faces people have created - just click HERE
Thanks for looking,
