Final check-in for the 29 faces challenge. Though I have been practicing faces every day this month, most of them were just quick scribbles in my journal.
I wasn’t going to write a WOYWW post today, because I have so much stuff to do. I figured it wouldn’t be responsible of me to write a post and then not find the time to go and comment on the other workdesks out there … and there are a lot ….
But you know what, I’m fed up with having to do the things I have to do and to proove it, I’ll show you what was on my workdesk just a few minutes ago…
See it’s a complete mess.
I started cleaning it up, because that’s what I was supposed to do, among other things. Right, but in stead I found myself making these little cuties… MiniDori’s =) and I couldn’t stop myself, I made booklets for the inside, decorated them. made a folder etc. I had soooo much fun!
Here are some close-ups of the MiniDori’s =)
That’s a lot of faces all in once, but last week has been a bit hectic for me, so I didn’t get any blogposts done. I did finish some of the video’s I was working on, about the Midori style travelers notebooks I made recently. I’ll post those at the end, just in case you would like to see them.
First though, as this is a 29 faces post, I did do a face a day this week and I am keeping up.
Here are they all in chronological order.
I finally finished my secret belgian binding book for the swap for the Hinges group. It took me quite a while to finish it. First trying and testing, then working out a concept and when I finally started making the book I ran into several problems. Making me want to cry, but I made it, it’s finished and it’s ready for shipping =).
I made some progress pics, some detailed shots of the finished book and a video, so you might want to go get a cup of coffee for this =).
Yay, I made it to face 13 on friday the 13th. Nearly halfway through the 29 faces in 30 days.
Though I must admit, I might have bitten off more than I can chew. So just in case it gets too much, I have some paintings and drawings from way back when standing by. Luckily that hasn’t been necessary yet.
For face #11 I wanted to go bold and big and not sketchy at all.
Instead of doing a post every day, I think I will keep grouping them together. This way it feels less like pressure and more like fun making them. As it was intended. So here are my faces #8, 9 and 10 for the 29 Faces in 30 days challenge.
To be honest I have been struggling a bit with this. I felt I was doing the same thing each time and I didn’t want that. So I started trying out some different things.
Here are some close ups of the three different faces I made and some explanation with each one.
