29 faces may5

oooh and another one down!

i have been playing in kitchen this afternoon making Lucys 21st cake for next weekend....its 4 diferent colors, so am making 2 at a time....
we'll all be off our heads after weve eaten this, with its mountains of food colorings and sugar :)


so this little face is radically different to my others but i just wanted to get some more color down, [inspired by the cakes i think]...
ive used oil pastels [the background is all smudged and sealed].... and some paints...i love my goldens. i treated myself to about 5 colors last birthday and they are just so lovely to use.... i also found some of Pattys beautiful stencilled magazine paper and ripped a little dress out...

i have always loved prim dolls, the grungier the better with their big noses and wonky eyes , ugly cute i call them....
i have just changed over to the old blogger interface. on the new one which i liked using, i couldnt label my post as there is nothing underneath the post box, it wont move :( also all my paragraphs just join up, i couldnt space them....
So unless i change my browser which i cant be bothered stuffing about with at the moment, i will use this one so that mr linky works while this challenge is on...Thanks Denthe for letting me know...

i find i am really looking forward each day to making one even when time is at a premium....


oh and i almost forgot...little miss playful !~

Hi Jen.
Lucy's 21st birthday cake is going to be wonderful(and very colorful too!). I think this face is my favorite yet. Colorful and quirky. I love that prim style - gorgeous little dress too.
Hope you are having a good weekend.

So cool that you've joined this challenge, I really enjoyed following the gals last month.
Your prim gal is my fav so far, love the colours and her grungy look, very very cool.
Great prep for lucy's 21st, have you got a key already or are you going to alter one?? Mx

Forgot to say Jenxo that if you download Google Chrome browser that it will fix your posting problem. I had the same thing happen til I downloaded the browser and now you can see everything about the posting box.
It is FREE.

Oh Jen... she is GORGEOUS... I just her primitive style and the color... oh my gosh... beautiful!!!
Hope you are going to share a photo of Lucy's birthday cake... it looks like it is going to be amazing... what a colorful weekend you are having...
and Jen... when you post on the new blogger interface... the labels heading is to the right of your post box... you just add in your labels... or click on any of the existing ones you might want to use... they are all there from previous posts once you click on the word label... and then hit ok...

Thank you for your suggestion on water colours on my blog. Guess who is going to spend some money today lol! I missed some of your faces this week so I am going to get a coffee and catch up now.
