May 29 faces....

i thought it might be fun to join 29 faces this month . i was a bit inspired by Jenny's effort in Feb but i have to admit that posting every day will be a challenge...
anyway, ive decided that i will try and fit some arty time in at lunchtime at work and im going to get a little art pack together to take in.....ive got one of those little atc watercolor pads and will make into a little book when i have finsihed...

so may 1......Little Miss Grumpy Bum.....

i think i liked her better with a plain white background but once i spattered that was it !

i used water solubale crayons and have discovered recently that if you dip the end in water then use your brush to flick, you get lovely splatters :)









........aimed at no one in particular :)


now to catch up with Tag Tuesday .....

Jen, she is so fun! I love splattering. It's like an act of defiance every time lol.
