Where Has the Time Gone??

What can I say?  I've been so immersed in faces that I've let my photography become a "stepchild".  I would not want
to bore you with all my face drawing attempts, many of which I 
consider failures on the way to success.....
This little girl was done with colored pencil and Dylusions ink.
For the doodles I used the Signo Uniball pen.  I love it as it writes on just about anything.

And this little party girl was done using alcohol markers.  I wasn't satisfied with the results here as they didn't blend well and left lots of streaks.  I think I might have had better results with a bleed-proof paper made for alcohol markers.  Question I really want to order MORE supplies???  Art supplies can really be addicting!  
I had such a disaster using distress ink on the background that I covered it up with collage papers.   Onward and upward as they say.......

Marilyn you are flying along here with your art. Had you been struggling in the past with faces? I kind of think you had been saying that. Certainly not evident here with these results. The first is my favourite; I love the face 'shapes'. The second, I like how you've added text in the hair, and those flowers in the background are very good too

I love your faces! I am really enjoying reading about your process and I have to say I really like the background you used the collage paper on.

I think these are wonderful, Marilyn.
I am so in awe of those who can draw/paint, etc.
I cannot even draw a stick figure, and have it look like a stick figure!!! :-(
