Inspiration

If you could see your creativity flowing would it look like this?   Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge  is Faces.  You can take your inspiration from face stamps to the face of a clock, cameos to silhouette.  

My project started from this:
A blend of mists spritzed through a stencil onto papers.  I created several pieces with different colors.

 I ended up with these scraps because of playing with projects like this:
My journal is an old ledger which I like to use for times when I am trying out new ideas.  I put a coat of paint over the middle of the page and started to layer on the left over scraps. I kept going until I had a lovely mix of pieces.

Then I decided to add the face. That led to what do I do with the top of her head?  I decided to create her mojo flowing out of her head. 

I had fun with this journal page although I had a hard time leaving the bottom half of my project without anything else.
