Journal Inspiration a la Jessica

I was reading my pal Jessica Sporn’s blog post about owning your own happiness and after seeing her face #5 I was inspired to draw a new face in my journal.  Drawing is new to me, but I am enjoying the quirkiness of what I see when I tell my story.  There is some mischievous part of me that feels the need to be a bit radical with my faces.  Maybe it’s because I never feel that beautiful physicality has as much value as what’s on the inside.  The real beauty comes from within and like Jessica said today, so does your happiness.  So I am extremely happy to report that I made myself feel joyous drawing my less than perfect face.  Go visit Jessica and tell her what you own about your own happiness today.

    Woohoo… she is great!!! The stencils behind her and the texture. The beauty on you inside and out is showing through; even though she’s thinking very deeply… happiness.

    What a great face, Corrine! One could say she is “two-faced,” but are we not all two-faced to some extent. We have one face for our public and another when we are alone and feeling vulnerable, feeling pain, feeling overwhelmed, or even feeling pride! I love her. No, she isn’t perfect or symmetrical or even beautiful, but what she is is reality–and I love her to pieces!

    I love the freedom I see in her. I can feel your creativity just flowing! Thank you so much for the shout out! You make me happy!

    Very nice, Corrine — and I agree — make yourself happy! I always think that one needs to appreciate the small things in life and that will help make you happy. XO

    Hi Corrine Great page and beautiful words to share here.
    Thank you for your postcard. I loved the layering and the stamping you’ve done on it. Hope we get to do such creative swaps again.

    She’s a winner! Lots of personality in that face – and I love her hair. Faces are still something I’m reluctant to try, but I enjoy seeing all the folks who are participating in 29 Faces for February….. Thanks for sharing your joy.

    She looks great! I love the stenciled background and how they show through her face.

    I think she’s terrific Corrine! Very Picasso like – truly. I also love how the background comes through her face. Fabulous! Stay safe and warm through the storm coming. xxoo

    Love this chick, chick! The hair is awesome as are her eyes and I love those little stenciled arrows at the bottom.
