Mosaic of the 29 faces challenge and Liebster Award!

I had fun making a mosaic of all the faces I did in last months' challenge. It makes you realize how much you've created. The very first face I did seems such a long time ago.

Here they are, all of them together:

And just for the fun of it, here are the faces from the previous challenges:

September 2012 (I was short on time but really wanted to participate, so I made only oneliners):

May 2012:

And the very first one: February 2012!

Sad that it's over, but glad I have more time for other things now ....

And to end the challenge in a really lovely way: Maria from Cozydoodle rewarded me with a Liebster Award!

Maria also participated in this latest challenge, so go have a look at her lovely blog! Thank you Maria for nominating me, I'm honoured.

So now I have to nominate five blogs that I love,which is a bit hard for me because there are so many blogs that I love. It was hard to choose, but these are the ones I came up with:

Marianne from Marianne's Blogje: she makes wonderful cards and journalpages, but I'm absolutely crazy about her painted faces. Multi-talented and very creative.

Michelle from Pigment of My Imagination: love her dry humour and her wonderful characters, always accompanied by some "crazy" quote.

Anne from Kuvia Matkalta: very creative and original art pieces, often a combination of painting and digital art.

Joyce from Joyful Art Stuff: beautiful colourful faces in a variety of techniques. She also started a bead journal project in January and makes beautiful jewellery.

Caryn from Catty Cards: she's a "veteran" like me in the 29 faces challenges, I think she also did all 4 of them. She makes quirky digital art, very unique and special.

I hope these ladies accept the award and pay it forward. Please have a look at their blogs, it's worth it!

Thanks for visiting and for leaving your lovely comments during this challenge, it really helped me to keep going at times when the going got tough ... ☺

 That's it for now. I won't be blogging every day anymore, but at least 3 times a week. I'll be back on Wednesday with a new "artists that inspire me"-post. Hope to see you then!


  1. Goh, wat leuk zo'n overzichtje. Dat ga ik ook proberen te maken als ik ze af heb (krijg). Zo zie je inderdaad hoeveel portretjes jij al hebt gemaakt en wat zijn ze allemaal verschillend!! En dat al 4 keer. Een heel mooi overzicht! Bedankt voor de nominatie en je lovende woorden. Natuurljk ben ik er erg blij mee, omdat ik weet dat jij er serieus mee omgaat. Toen ik pas begon met bloggen, gooide ze je plat met die dingen en kreeg je elke week wel een award, dus vandaar dat ik had aangegeven dat ik liever geen awards meer wou ontvangen. Maar nu voel ik me toch heel erg vereerd. Dankjewel Denise!
    Ik kijk al uit naar je "inspiring artist" en je nieuwe creaties.

  2. Congratulations on the award Denise... and LOVE LOVE your mosaics... your faces are gorgeous... as always... and so wonderful to see them all together... another fabulous challenge complete...

    Jenny ♥

  3. Wow, what great mosaics and a superb way to see them all. Seeing your one liners, (which I love) has made me relook at Carla Sonheim's book and have a go myself. You have surpassed yourself with this years though. All brilliant! Congrats on the award as well. So glad I found your work through the 29 faces challenge.

  4. Oh my it is fantastic to see them all together in one post! I was trying to get all mine together last night but hadn't even finished my last face :). You have done so well Denthe and I hope you keep participating if there are more coming up. I loved seeing your faces on FB even though I have not always been able to visit your blog often to let you know how great I think you are. ManonX

  5. It's fantastic to see all those faces that you've done over four challenges. I like them all but the one liners fascinate me. I've tried doing them and can't seem to get're the master!
