Stenciled Face of Autumn

The new Jane Davenport face stencils are petite so they fit perfectly in Dyan Reaveley's new sized journaling book.  Dyan's book measures about 8 1/2" by 5 1/2" which is a great sized journal to pop in your purse.  Very portable.  So what I like to do is trace the face stencils in the book and then when I have a little time I can work on them.  If I'm out and about and waiting for someone I can always tangle the hair if I choose to.

Today's face is one traced with permanent ink and then I used water based inks for her hair and PanPastels for her face.  I have always loved the poem called "Maud Muller" by John Greenleaf Whittier.   His words are so moving: "For of all sad words of tongue or pen, the saddest are these:  It might have been."  I thought she looked like someone reflecting on things that might have been.  She also reminds me that it is Autumn.  Always a time of reflection for me, maybe for you too.

Have a great day, give it your best shot!  Hugs to all of you ~ Renee
