Blessed Beltane! One of my favorite Sabbats not only cos' we celebrate the greening of Mother Earth, but it's my sweet little boy's birthday too! Our day started kind of iffy with lots of overcast and high winds, but the sun eventually came out and it's been gorgeous ever since.
I've been really enjoying all the Spring blossoms we've been having this year compared to last...look at these beautiful apple blossoms!
Okay...so you all heard I joined May's 29 Faces Challenge with Ayala Art...well today was Day 1. I plan on doing sketches in one of my XL Mixed Media journals, then I can have them to scan and use again in various sizes in other art projects, Effy gave me this idea and I love it.
So, here's the face I drew today...
I had a few technique issues when I tried to paste her on to my BOD...I'm still learning how to integrate faces on to the page. I ended up getting some matte medium, on her face, which I used to stick her on, ...so it gave me what I call cold spots...like in ceramics where the paint won't take. But practice makes perfect, so this will be good practice for me. Here's the finished spread in my book...
You know I love shimmer and glimmer...but photos never do it justice...her wings shimmer in champagne and have blue glitter throughout, so do her eyelids. I love it! Day 1 complete ♥
