Fairies in her Hair! Show your Face Friday!

Hello and welcome to Magpieheaven! It's time again for the fabulous weekly 'get-together' known as 'Show Your Face', run by the wonderful, Kim Dellow! Please click here to find out what I'm prattling on about. Kim explains everything clearly about this face creating community, which is proving to be so much fun! Please do link up with Kim's blog if you enjoy sketching, painting, printing or doodling faces and you have something to share! I'm afraid I'm late to the party this week. I just started an on line course and Friday has been my day for really getting down to work. I have got some faces to show you, which I doodled the other evening and they are not unrelated to the course. I think it must be very much on my mind, or maybe I should say 'in my hair'!


I decided to do some more doodling this week. It's still part of my 'Black and White' collection. Can you see the fairies hidden in this lady's leafy coiffure? I think they might be the residents from the little houses I've been creating at The Artful Gathering class. This year our wonderful teacher, Mary Jane Chadbourne has been inspiring us to create Tinytopia, a little village just about the right size to house a fairy community! For obvious reasons, we can't blog Work in Progress pics; but when my village is built I'll post it on my blog so that you can see where these tiny folk usually reside!



And here is a full face doodle of another flowery and leafy haired lady. To me she looks like Flora, goddess of Spring-time and flowers. Thank you so much for stopping by Magpieheaven. I've kept this post short, as I still wanted to play along with Show Your Face and to visit as many of the other artists as possible, although life seems very busy. Have a wonderful, creative weekend everyone. I can't wait to see the faces this week!

  2. I commented in another place of yours, but I wanted to tell you here how much I love your lovely lady, and how caring she is to house little fairies in her hair. That's true love.
    Hugs.

  3. Oh to have fairies nestled in my hair, I could not think of anything more joyful than that! Imagine opening the curtains on a dreich morning to then pause for thought and take note that all is well with the world as there will be some mischief and joy surrounding the day all because of those dear little fairies.
    Adore the character you brought to the face of Flora, she has a sympathetic gaze.
    Wishes

  12. Faeries in her hair - how wonderful (I wonder if that's what's going on when mine misbehaves constantly!)... and I love leafy Flora - there's something so soft and gentle about her gaze. Beautiful faces, Julie Ann.
