There is a face plant challenge going on at Artspark Theatre. Make a face, post it by August 2, let her know via a comment. I assume found objects are part of the aesthetic, but these free spirited visual artists aren't too keen on rules, so do whatever you want.

Random beach toys laying around our cluttered back yard. Had to scoot these around with my foot a bit to make the face, but they were all within a five foot radius of where I was standing.

Scary gargoyle face from youngest's pottery. Gotta dig those ears.

Salt dough beards. Youngest in the middle, two neighbor girls on the sides (we call them the tutus because, well, they are always wearing tutus). I believe that's Dora they're holding. She's got a beard too.

A homemade kite, created by the eldest. Look closely and you can see a bit of the beach toy face peeking out from behind.

A pottery "fairy house" made by the eldest. The face? Look at the fairy perched on the roof. She's smiling at you.

Love the beards especially. Will link you up late Sunday!

These pictures make me smile - I miss those days of clay-made fairy houses. Joys!

Maggie said...

Love the gargoyle and the fairy house! I'm feeling inspired to whip up a batch of salt clay. I think we have a weekend project brewing.

Oh and I'm going to be looking for faces in things all day. What a cool idea.

What a cute idea. I love the bearded beauties.. too sweet.

I almost forgot this Sparky challenge... Must look around.

Clowncar said...

Yeah, those beards are pretty cool. They came up with that idea all by themselves (I helped make the salt dough).

Hey Emma, thanks for stopping by. The girls are just entering the stage where they can start to build more complicated stuff. Lotsa fun!

Maggie, gotta give props to Artsparker for the idea. You can give props to me for the sal dough though.

Hil, not only can you make beards, but you can eat them afterward!

Fun indeed, o soft drink that reminds me of Tab. How was the Band Box?

Gargoyle brilliant. And I want a salt dough beard!
