Show Your Face - Change Hands

Hello amazing Facers, it has been over a year now that I've been sharing my face art and encouraging you all to share your art too here on my blog with the Show Your Face link up. It has been a wonderful journey, I have met and made new friends through it plus I also got an opportunity to share how I draw my faces in a Craft Stamper Magazine video, which is still available by the way!

But now I think I have come to the end of my face and portrait journey for the time being as other artwork is taking over my time and I am finding that I am not drawing faces regularly in my week. So I've decided to finish the Show Your Face link and I'm sorry to say that this will be its last week.

I will still be here, sharing my art and creative life on my blog, on my YouTube channel, Instagram and all the other places you can usually find me, but the Show Your Face link will end this time next Friday.

I just wanted to say a massive THANK YOU to EVERYONE who has joined, watched, hopped the Show Your Face link. Thank you for joining me and sharing with me every week I have been inspired and amazed by all of you and I hope you have enjoyed it too!

But we still have a share this week so let's share!


First up the admin...


Don't forget:
  • Show Your Face is a community link up for portrait work in any style or medium.
  • the aims are to share, learn, practise, inspire, and be inspired.
  • to make sure that the face artwork is yours, if you use any stamps or templates to build the face they should be designed by you.
  • the link stays open for a week, so link away.
  • finished pieces, works in progress or retro posts (i.e. older works, not from this week) are all welcome.
  • to link back to the link blog post here for that week.
  • Spread the word on your blog/social media outlets and use the #ShowYourFaceFriday hashtag in social media.
  • Using the prompts is totally optional and just there if you fancy playing along. You can still post your face work even if you haven't used the prompt.


My Share This Week...

For my last Show Your Face share I thought I would pick some of my favourite pieces from the last year and a bit. Top left is paint and pen, top right - charcoal, bottom left - ballpoint on crackle paint, bottom right my marker pen half face from last week.


Over To You...

  1. Oh! It's sad that Show Your Face is coming to an end, but I hope you keep having much success with your art, Kim! Btw, I don't receive your newsletter for quite some time... will you keep sending from time to time?
    Although the news were a surprise, I have decided to share my second face this week (yes, the first one was last year, I can't say I'm a regular here), so, here we go...
    Thank you for all the inspiration shared here, everyone. Kim, your half face from last week is one of my favorites ever... just stunning!

    1. Hi Cris, well thank you so much for joining in and I am sorry that Show Your Face is ending just as you have shared your second face! But I still appreciate your linking up and sharing your inspiration!
      Sorry also about my newsletter, it has been on my list and just keeps slipping away from me but I am hoping to get it up and running more regularly!
      Thanks so much for popping in and I hope you have a lovely weekend!
      Kim

  2. P.S. - It's funny, when I saw the title "Show Your Face - Change Hands" I thought someone else would be hosting this feature... :)

  3. Sad to see it end, but I will link up is week to say goodbye. You made me try something different and something I would never have even thought of doing ever. Good luck with your other ventures :) xx

    1. I know, sorry Ruth but I am so pleased that it inspired you to give a go :) Sometimes we just need to take a risk and try something we would not normally try, which is exactly what got me started in this too! :) So I am glad you took the leap with me! Have a fun weekend!

  4. Hi Kim
    It has been lovely witnessing all the face share blog posts, but I am so happy that you are in demand as your work needs to be shown. I look forward to what you come up with next, thank you and everyone for participating it has been wonderful to view with envy as drawing is definitely not my strong point. Hugs Kim love Jennifer X X X
