29 Faces - Day 4

I feel like the little engine that could... sorta... maybe... puff... puff...
Angel of Love, a Valentine babe crashed to earth is DAY 4... 
Magaly a majorly cool blogger buddy recently said something along the lines of "Sometimes it pays to mix things up. I like your gumbo, luv" Well gumbo is my all time fav food (& I was married in New Orleans & ate it with crab cakes as entree to celebrate) a collection of jeeze louise what's that there throw it in, let it cook, & how's it taste... Anyway, I loved that comment (actually LOVE 'em all, needy ain't I?) & doing this challenge, well it's bringing out my gumbo, bit of this, bit of that... so I love the fact you keep coming back & I keep serving it up LOL, & some babe, are gunna taste better than others, but hell, 29 faces, well... puff... puff ;)

She seems real! You could design dolls with her image.

Pam said...

I adore this. I wish you would do a step by step. I can see collaged materials but can't work out what your drawing/painting medium is.

Terrie said...

She's a lovely face, the layers you achieved are just amazing! And those eyes! I'm so impressed that you are tackling this challenge and as I look back over your recent pieces, I'm amazed by your talent. Can't wait to see more of the '29'! Thanks for the visit and encouraging Layers words.

I love this! The eyes are hypnotic! It's totally original. Although static it has a feeling of moving through time in one spot!

I love the layering, especially the fractures on the right side of the face. I think I could take cosmetic lessons from your faces--love those pink lips!

This is powerful, Shelle. Pink has never looked so defiant and simply beautiful. Her eyes... I couldn't stop staring at them... the angles of her face... those lips, my goodness, and again the eyes. Amazing.

Pink hair love. :)

Mina said...

Love, love love this, Shelle! You were married in New Orleans??? My daughter loves that place and I have never been but would love to go for a visit. Of course, I'd love to go to Australia as well. Many many many years ago...when my sister and I were in love with the young Mel Gibson, we used to joke about moving to Australia and finding our own Mel. ;-)

Cameron said...

She is gorgeous, Shelle! Like the fairy companion to your beautiful mermaid in your previous post! Magical!
