Journal 52- Character

Our prompt for week 4  at Journal 52, together with some guide lines is Building Character.


Another topic to get me out of my comfort zone. I am not a painter, so this prompt got me rummaging in my stamps for this face  by Stampers anonymous. The hair was easier, I went for the un-combed  shaggy look, this is not my colour,  but some  days mine could look like this.
The background is layered paints, in shades of yellow, I used  a sun ray mask at the top, the page had previously been random stamped. There is some  added writing  at the bottom  depicting words that may be could be used to describe me. Over  these I added a quote  from a  Dylusions stamp,  which my OH says could well be me.

Thank you for stopping by to take a look, I do so appreciate you calling.
