Mixed Media Mojo - Art Journal Monday

Good morning all. I hope you all had a good weekend, I went to Alexandra Palace on Saturday, didn't spend to much but it was lovely meeting up with blogging friends.

Today it's my turn to post for Mixed Media Mojo - Art Journal Monday. This page was inspired by Jenni Niemi, I've been watching her videos on You Tube.

I started by spreading acrylic paint over the page.

I did some stencilling and stamping over the page.

Then I drew the face and stamped some flowers.

I painted round the face and flowers leaving the background showing, then I painted the face.

I coloured round the face with Faber-Castell Pitt pens and did some doodling round the flowers and on her hair. I stamped some small flowers and script on the background, I also added some shading to the face.

I must admit that I'm pleased with the result as it's the first face I've done. I hope you like it.

I'd like to share my face with Kim Dellow's - Show Your Face.

Thank you for looking.

xxx Hazel.


  1. I would never have known that was your first face. She is beautiful and I love the beautiful floral masterboard you started with too.

  2. She's beautiful Hazel, great techniques! xxx

  3. Love! Fabulous work Hazel and I love seeing your stages too. Wonderful. Thanks for linking up to Show Your Face and for the shout out too. Kx

  4. Gorgeous. Loving all those layers xx

  5. What a wonderful way to create the face with all that background detail becoming part of the image rather than just background (if you see what I mean!). She's beautiful.
