Faces, Award and Love

I think I have finished playing with faces now - until I need one. The colours in this top pic are about right for these four - all drawn while looking at magazine pictures. The centre bottom ATC took more than an hour, but at last I got the shading to blend rather than splodge. I was going to scrape the round canvas clean, but after an week or so on the floor, where the dog literally walked on it, the colours seemed to meld a little better and some of the lumps disappeared.
The lovely and talented Bevlea blessed me with a Kreativ Blogger Award; the teacher does so want to correct the spelling :).

The Rules:List 7 things that you LOVE. Link to the person who has tagged you. Choose 7 more bloggers to give the Kreativ Blogger Award to. Comment on those 7 blogs to let the recipients know you chose them.
1. Jesus
2. Family (Furry and Two Legged)
3. Sandwiches (I could eat them three times a day, 15 salad veges, plain cheese and pickles, peanut butter, anything, toasted or not, just fresh).
4. Sunshine and blue skies
5. Reading ( I read EVERYTHING - contracts, books, cereal boxes, signs, the lot)
6. This little art world we belong to online
7. My friends, who are always 'there' - thank you.
I am a dud at passing these on and this is no exception, thank you to all the creative people who inspire me.

Hi Julie
I have been having trouble leaving comments on blogs lately but have been visiting you. You have done a wonderful job on your faces.
And I love the pins you have been creating too (you always use such gorgeous items).
