Round Robin: Faces Art Journal

This post is to highlight my recent installment in a round robin for my Kindred Souls art group.  This book belongs to Eileen, she has a wonderful blog.  The theme of her book is faces, and I have to admit, I was stuck.  I don't typically include a lot of people or faces in my work.  I really don't know why, but it has been a stumbling point in the past as well.

This sat on my art table for a while, as I slowly built up my page.  Finally today, inspiration struck and I was able to complete it.  I found the central image in a drawer of paper scraps.  A stamp that was dipped in UTEE long ago was added along with lots of layers of text and a Dresden border.  I have had a piece of resin paper I keep tearing off of, and I have been pleased to have this lying around.  

I could not help adding some junk.  I would have kept building on this charm, but I did not want to add too much weight...I think I already may have though!!!  

I had intended to add this face image, on the front of the page, but it just did not happen at the time.  I am pleased with the results on the back though, even if the subject matter is a bit mashed up and quirky. 

Hopefully Eileen will like my contribution!  I look forward to sharing the next installment as well as my finished book someday.




  1. It's a really great page. Set of pages, both sides are wonderful! I'm sure she will love them.

  2. I'd never have guessed that faces were a stumbling block for you; my page is wonderful! Love the back as well. Thank you for being a part of this fabulous round robin!

  3. Your pages are wonderful Rhea!

  4. Nicely done Rhea, I guess I need to get crack-a-lackin with images of faces.

  5. Well it dosn't look like you stumbled at all. what did you use around the face? I love the texture it gave it and all the "junk" is perfect and so you. Great page!


  6. Lovely pages. Your reluctance to deal with images doesn't show in your work.
