The many faces of ME!

Being the 28th day of 29 Faces for February, I thought I might show lots of faces.
The Art Geeks prompt for this week was to make a journal page using scraps and collage to show how the world sees you and how you really are. Some people don't see this as "proper" art, but I find it rather enjoyable :D

I chose to use my STEve book, which I made with my most favourite K&Co Blossomwood papers, and collected 6 images that I felt represented versions of me...I arranged them on the pages and smooshed copper metalic acrylic around a bit :D( I like smooshing paint)
I then made labels for each representation...
and finally doodled and added expressions of how I am perceived.
So Face no 28 is "The many faces of ME!"
#1 How parents see me....angelic of course
#2 How friends see me .... some one to tell their troubles to
#3 How Society sees me....sat drinking tea all day(stay at home mum)
#4 How Hubby sees me...alluring, with a hint of danger, sexy(and grateful I am that he does:D)
#5 How I see me....Happy in my own space(wanting to be away with the faeries most of the time)
and finally
#6 How I really am in the world....constantly battling with the outside world(protecting friends and family, trying to keep them all safe and happy)
Hope you enjoyed this bit of fun :D XXX

  3. I see a dreamy combination and she--the you I see--is dancing in colors and in words. She is bright and beautiful, and true to herself and others. Such hard things to find.

  6. I think this is a wonderful way to get in touch with the real you. I made a similar journal years ago. It was all about things that I love and am interested in ... and started out as a gratitude journal. Great fun ... and a way to get feelings out. Should try another. Thanks for bringing back memories.

    Happiness to all.
