Passions of an Odd Chick

Saturday, February 5, 2011


Did I mention that I like to paint faces? It's addicting I tell you. Sweet Farmer suggested I make a box of faces. His idea was more
complicated but I thought I would, at least, try it and see how well the paint would take and what a great little canvas(s)ss! I've seen others try this and I loved how you could have a three-dimensional art object upon completion. 
If you want to see some really fantastic altered boxes head on over to Diane's blog  She is like the queen of this technique and a very sharing artist. Check out her Etsy store while you're at it- her jewelry will blow you away too.
Whew- after that ride, it's a little daunting to show my first attempts but she has inspired me many times!


I added wooden beads for a stand and a wooden knob that I painted to match for interest.

This passion for faces just keeps on finding a new rabbit trail.
