Face 29: 29 Faces in September!

My last face for this project is part of a mixed media art journal spread. The mediums used are acrylic paints, Prisma coloring pencils, Gellatos and Charcoal.
The message is: Be You...; just do what you love to do and don't worry about what others want you to do.
The second message is: Keep Dreaming...; and I promise I will keep dreaming. Will you keep dreaming?
The third message is: Love; don't need to explain this one!

Would like to share at:
Big hug and lots of positive energy!

Faces 27 and 28: 29 Faces in September!

Face 20: 29 Faces in September!

I needed to share this face on a separate post.
This week was really hard. I wanted to do so many things, but work, family and my thoughts got in the way.
As I said in my past post, many projects are in progress, but I am also feeling the pressure from my past. I am fearful that my past will hold me, not let me get where I want to go.
I've been reliving my pain, many years of being told that I could not do things without an unmerciful and manipulative person by my side. Each time I get excited I can hear his voice, crushing each and every dream.
I know he can't hurt me any more, at least if I don't allow it( and I won't), but the memories are so real at moments.
I have to stop feeling the pain of that first relationship, and facing my fears is one of my ways of healing.
Sat at my desk and drew a face, not any face... but a hurt one.
This is what I feared for so long, this is how I saw myself: bruised and scared... so scared.
But I am not this woman any more, my face is not bruised, no dark marks, no black eyes...
I don't need to cover my marks with makeup. My face has healed. My arms have healed. My back, my legs, my body has healed.
My heart and soul are healing, the process has been slow, painful and so exhausting; but it is happening. Each day I am better.
I need to believe in  myself; not let that little voice hurt me; not allow the past to become my present.
I am still learning to be Me.
I want to be Me.
I need to be Me.
Big hug and lots of positive energy!

Faces 18 and 19: 29 Faces in September!

It's been a eight days since I last blogged here, hum, to many days without writing...
I did create, worked hard on my faces; but work got in the way and it took my week away.
During the past days I've been thinking a lot about life, family and dreams, yes, dreams. They keep following me and telling me very softly: You can do this, just go for it!
I might just jump in some very exciting ventures, creatively and business wise. I am so excited and scared.
Will keep you all posted on this new project.
For now I am sharing faces 18 and 19:

Faces 12, 13 and 14: 29 Faces in September!

I have been away for the weekend and out at work all day long, but I managed to find some time to sketch faces.
Face 12 is a tiny sketch and I had lots of fun with her lips.
For face 13, I wanted to work with a male face and have been a little obsessed with clowns. This one is sad, Tears rolling down his check.
Face 14 is a little girl, loved working on the pony tails and dress.
Big hug and lots of positive energy!

Face 10: 29 Faces in September

A friend asked for me to sketch a face without hair. She is a survivor of Cancer and during her treatment lost all of her hair.
So you see, this is a special one...

There you go my dear friend! I am so thankful for your friendship.
Big hug and lots of positive energy!

Face 9: 29 Faces in September

Today I've been doing some soul searching and exploring certain relationship in my life.
Don't worry, all is good.
Sometimes we need to look deep inside to see everything that has been hiding for so long.
Our inner self has so many doors and once you open one, you are on the way of healing.
This doesn't have to happen immediately, the process can be very slow and painful. But in the end we are stronger and at peace with ourselves and that is what is most important.
Here is my face for day 9:
Big hug and lots of positive energy!

Face 8: 29 Faces in September

Yeap, face #8 is here and I love it.
I use my new Travelers Journal that measures 4 inches by 3 inches, it is really small, but a blast to work with..
Have been practicing tilted heads and eyelashes for a while, still need to improve on both but I am getting there... where ever there is.

Big hug and lots of positive energy!

Face 7: 29 Faces in September

Today I've been painting using a technique from Moonshine: Mother called trance painting.
It is a wonderful process where you are one with your creation, no previous plans, no specific idea; just you, music and coloring mediums.
I love everything about this technique, it felt so liberating. I used my hands, my paint brushes and even paper towels .
It was just doing what I felt, as the amazing mantra music played and all my senses became one.
I was one with everything and anything that was surrounding me, and I was so relaxed, so inspired.
Hours passed and I did not notice... time lost its meaning, it didn't dictate how long I was going to do this, I could do it forever...
This is what I created during this amazing experience:
The journaling says:
Mother's love is peace. It need not be acquired , it need not be deserved.
Mediums used: Golden Fluid Acrylics, Gelatos, Q Color Pigments and a gel white pen. I also used a stamp set from Unity Stamps called Now and Always.
Hope you like it!

Big hug and lots of positive energy!

Face 6: 29 Faces in September

After lots of planing to visit everyone participating in 29 Faces, I couldn't, at least not as early as I had planned.
Things happen and there is no use in trying to go back in time and doing things differently; so I am scheduling this post and starting my journey through the 29 Faces world. This is so exciting, I know that I will be inspired by all the talent that is participating.
Here is my face for the day:

Big hug and lots of positive energy!

Face 5: 29 Faces in September

Yes, it is day five and I am still drawing faces!!!
Today, I sat in front of my desk, with a wonderful mantra playing and began to sketch not a specific idea, all of the sudden I realized I was re-sketching a face that I recently drew and painted.
Must admit that once I finished my face I felt so calm, it was like setting something free, my own desire to be free with my art, no judging, no fear, just doing what I want and not hiding it.
Here is my face for day five:

Big hug and lots of positive energy!
