Is it that time of year yet?? Yes!
Grab the button on the sidebar (copy and paste the txt in your blog) ---->>
Come have fun with hundreds of artists of all levels, making faces in any media!
We start on the 1st of February, make 29 if possible... but not being a leap year, you have to create 2 one of the days! ;o)
Join the Mr Linky starting Feb 1st in the newest tab (top menu) and the public page in FB
You can post in any type of blog that allows public viewing (no required membership to post)
videos are OK, but please remember to include a link to this blog, where people can find the actual information of the challenge (and not some vague indirect place) lol
More than anything, have fun creating and discover how you can perfect your techniques by dedicating time to make a face a day! ♥
I'm a week late to close the event but sometimes that's how life goes :oP
I want to thank each and every person participating in this challenge!
To those that finished them all, to those that just made a few....
Those that found it hard and those that tried something new to them....
Pat yourself in the shoulder, you guys!! I hope you all had fun, met
new friends and learned something new about yourself, I know I did, and loved seeing your art every day, here and in facebook, instagram, hundreds of faces!
Remember you can still post in the public page if you didn't finish. ♥
Here is a collection of faces from Maria Clark, Sweet Willow Designs.
I hope everyone is having fun and learning something new about your own capabilities and art preference.
I myself am learning patience and acceptance that sometimes we just have to take a detour, take a different path or slow down, even if I know I can do better.... Why? Because every time I run this challenge, something unplanned happens. This time was a move, which we were so sure would happen in October, but no, had to be as September started and it has been nuts.
We still can' find stuff in boxes -- so much for having someone helping, right?
But anyway, I am trying to keep up, changed directions, switched gears and I am doing the challenge on my iPad, which I have to confess, I have no idea how to use fast and therefor the "patience" part of my learning while doing the challenge.
Talk to you soon and I hope whatever you are dong, you are having fun!!
You can copy the text and paste it in a gadget in your blog, and feel free to post it anywhere else you want, just include a link to this blog so people don't get lost.
Before we start, it helps to tell others what is this challenge, so make your first post about your goal this September, like: pencil sketches, or watercolor faces, or any technique you want to improve or try for the 1st time ♥
On the 1st of September (pacific time) I will upload a tab (top menu) with the "Mr Linky" for everyone to add their challenge related posts. As always, any unrelated blog will be deleted.
Are you getting hyper about it?? . . . . I am!!! :oD
Questions? Check the side bar menu ---->>
Comments? Always welcome!
It's that time of year again! Weather starts changing, cool to warm, warm to cool, depending on where we are in the planet... and we start thinking of 29 faces ♥
What new to you tool do you want to use, to practice with?
Is there a paper, canvas, material you are curious to try?
Is there a medium you heard of but are hesitant to use?
This is the time to dare! Use all the collage paper, the pencils, pastels, crayons etc that have been thinking of buying, or better yet... you already bought but have not tried!!
The fun of this project is that you will be in the same boat as many artists of different levels, doing faces, trying new things, or a new technique, and you know that practice makes perfect, so, working every day for a month, will leave you with more experience in that area or with that product, in the company of people that will celebrate your work, and give you awesome eye candy in their blogs, for you to admire.
So, get ready, grab the blog button *(coming up soon), invite any other friend that you think might want to try portraits, even if it is their first time! All levels welcome, all countries, all mediums, all sizes.
People that have participated before can tell you it is a crazy lot of fun! ;oD
See you in September!
P.S. Check the tabs on the top menu to see past events! hundreds and hundreds of faces to see, from all over the world!
Hey guys, this is a slide show with my faces for this past February, I hope you had as much fun as I did.... and be ready for next September when we do it again!! It will be the 11th edition ..... 4 years strong!
If you want to see more weekly art, journaling and some doll making, subscribe to my channel! it is free! (°‿~ )✌ (link in the video)
P.S. I noticed in the past months different groups with a similar name to "29 faces", which is kind of sad and confusing. (30, 24, 100, 365 etc faces) and have nothing to do with this challenge... I wish they had picked another different name, but that's what it is.
The 29 faces challenge runs in February and September and all levels of expertise and mediums are welcome ♥
