29 Faces Day 4

Hello friends,
today was a beautiful warm spring day. The lilacs are really green with leaves and soon I am sure we will see them in bloom. Everything is greening up nicely and the birds are returning.
Today while hubs was working I did a mixed media girl for my face. A little different but I tend to get bored with the same thing so today was filled with fun. Painting with my fingers, making circles with a glue stick cap, using bubble wrap, sequin waste stencil and a few other bits.
I named this little girl Charmaine, she has dark Paynes Grey hair, stripy socks and and a bright pink dress. I have used many medias in this piece, from paint, gesso, pencil crayon and marker and gel pen. 
I still struggle with journalling on my art pages. Many artists do but I never quite think of what I want to say. I stuck on a clear sticker just to put something there. I will have to see what comes about.
This is going to be a rather busy weekend, there is a birthday in the house and well you never know what can happen. So if I don't get posting tomorrow I have to do a catch up either Sunday or Monday.
Thanks for dropping by. 
I have really enjoyed your comments.
