Another Face for Friday

I have pulled out another piece of art from my archives.  This is unfinished - and may possibly remain that way. 
I like the soft and slightly mysterious nature of this piece.

I am linking up with Nicole for the Friday Face Off

Of course some days you just have an urge to make something.
I had that urge during this week. So, I decided to make a notebook cover.
These fit a standard size composition book, so they are very easy to refill once you have used up the composition book that it in it. 

Inside front with pocket and label

Over the years, I have sold a number of these notebook covers (notebook included) to people across the country.  I have also had them sold in an art gallery.  One wish is that I would see someone with one of my notebooks "in the wild."  I would want it to be someone who doesn't know me.  Ha ha. It would be fun to see their face when I said "I think I made that!" 

Until Next Time,  
Stay Creative

The face painting is lovely, makes me wsonder what's going to happen next. And I love the book cover! Valerie

The ghostly ethereal feeling of your piece makes it feel finished to me!

Even unfinished, I think that piece works. And new quilted cover too. Have a great weekend Gene.

I also thought the faces were ethereal, but Barbara beat me to it.

I love your book cover. The design is fabulous. I would never have considered adding my name to a book I created. Awesome!

That is a very interesting, and yes, mysterious piece of art. I love the colors in it. Hope all is well with you and your family, Gene.
