Art It Friday - Show Your Face!
Once again, it's time to share faces/portraits created this week for "Art It Friday - Show Your Face"
I played with some of my gelli papers today and first created this fun face:
Then I worked in my journal. I had loved this quote by Harriet Tubman:
"Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world."
and wanted to use it for the A to Z challenge but it was too long for the cards I used. Instead it worked well here.
Here's a close-up of the face. I started with a magazine face, then gessoed and painted it.
I took part in this postcard exchange with the theme "Collaged Kindness".
I used a gelli paper for the background, and alphabet stickers. The quote comes from the amazing book "Wonder" written by R. J. Palacio. There is a whole movement based on "Choose Kind" and it is one I used in my classroom. If only everyone would!
