Craft Barn Alpha Challenge - Letter J

Evening all,

brrrrrr, chilly wind today!!! Ha ha ha I'm still resisting the temptation to turn the heating on though!!!!!!!!

I can't believe how full and colourful my book is looking now, this is such a fun challenge and I will be sooooooooo sad when it draws to a close.  I got brave again but couldn't find anything in my trusty drawing instruction book so I resorted to flicking through a magazine to find a photo to work from, lots of artistic licence applied of course!!!!!!!!
If you fancy a peek at what this challenge is all about please pop on over HERE, and if you would like a nose at the other J entries please pop on over HERE.

Anyhoo, my chosen word for the letter J is JUNO - Roman Queen of the Gods, wife (and also sister lol) of Jupiter........

Tee hee, a very modern day interpretation maybe but I think she looks regal enough!!!!!!!!

Lol, I never thought about putting a crown on her until it was too late, sigh!!!! Luckily I managed to find a suitable stamp which was embossed in gold and added to balance the page a bit more.

Stamp credits - Alphabet set by see-d's and the crown is from a My Minds Eye set.

Many thanks for popping by and leaving a comment if you feel you would like to, your time and thoughts mean so very much.

Huge hugs

Oh Dawn, this is gorgeous. You draw SO well. I love how you can see the book background through her face.

What is so funny is my e-mail address is I was aware it was originally the Queen of the gods. Wish my e-mail was as queenly (grin).

Those crowns are the perfect addition to balance the face. You did an excellent job. I love it all, right down to the colors you used.

Have a super weekend.

A modern but great version of Juno sweetie !!! You drew her with a lot of character, and used fab colours to highlight her also, with a cute addition of the crowns... Love that !! I really regret to have stopped my dictionary when I see yours tee hee! :))) Have a lovely week-end, Huge Hugs Coco xxx

What a delightful idea and I love your drawing. The only face I could draw would be appropriate for Halloween and would be entitled Mask! I love my dictionary too as I have more and more pages of color and fun. I have found that it says a lot about my life too.

A great modern take on Juno and of course more fabulous drawing, glad to see you keeping it up. I did a spot of painting this time too and surprised myself with it - so our practicing is paying off. We also seem to be keeping our big sisters in awe too which is always good to do once in a

I'm loving following along on this project - faces intimidate me mightily and yet I love seeing how others put their own spin on them. This is one strong looking lady...just look at that jaw line. I wouldn't want to mess with her! :)

Weather is definitely cooler and fall is here in full force in the Pacific NW. This week is supposed to be foggy mornings, sunny afternoons and 60. Can't beat that!!
