Theme Thursday Challenge - Faces

This is my entry for Theme Thursday Challenge this week. The theme is faces. We are to make an ATC, a 4 by 4 or anything we want just as long as it has a face on it. Well, that was a challenge. Way too many choices for me in that department. I have been playing with photo shop using one photo with lots of the drawing, layers, filters, etc. Also, making things using the grid feature.

I am fascinated with faces. They can tell us so much about a person. Expressions always changing. I decided to make a Warhol type thing using this young girl. Like most people, I gave her several different faces, with several different backgrounds, like the different settings we have in our lives. I have included the original photo at the bottom of this post for your personal use. I thought you might like to play around with her. She was obviously well taken care of and loved by her family. All children should be so lucky.

Original Image - Isn't she just the sweetest? and that big old chain and locket... don't forget to right click to get the larger version of her.

I wonder if that's her Daddy's pocket watch on that big chain. She has a wonderful face, and your study in different filters and such is very unique and interesting. Thank you for sharing!

I really like what you have done with this picture. Thanks for the image and I loved the rooster picture. Which photo shop do you use? I am still struggling trying to figure out some of the "how to's".

Elizabeth, I've been away for too long! Thanks for sharing your images - I really like this little girl and what you did on the 'grid'! Thanks for that comment about my DOTD jewellery... much appreciated!
I found the Art Journal surgery fascinating. I'm sure that will come in handy as I work in mine! =)
