Holy Shmoly! We didn’t think we were going to get any entries in the our latest face paint contest. The night it was ending there was not one submission in our e-mail box by 10pm…and off we went to watch Will and Grace in bed…a little sad. Waah.
But then, YAY, Tuesday morning we woke to four last minute entries sitting in the In-box!! Thanks so much to those who took the challenge on! You made us super happy!
It is soo hard deciding on a winner because every design has so much going for it. I can tell that every one who entered was trying something new, and that they were challenging themselves.
The winner for this contest is Aura Lee Faulk, from Tennessee!
This is what she wrote about her piece.
“My picture is called “Fairy Necklace with a Lace Glove”.
I used DFX black, white and gold. I also used black, white and gold shimmers and gold and white glitter.
It is a fairy sitting in the tree watching the moon on the medallion. The chain and lace glove are also painted on.”
I chose Aura Lee’s design because the whole concept was totally creative! I love the chain wrapping around the hand, and how transparent that medallion is holding the little image. I wish the picture was in better focus, so I could zoom in to see all of the little details, but I get the over all sense that a lot of time and creative thought went into this one! Keep on Painting Aura Lee!!!We shipped your package yesterday, so keep your eye out for it this week! I hope you have fun with the book and rainbow cakes!
Aura Lee Paints with her mom, Jenny Faulk, who submitted this super stunning entry,” Black Tie Masquerade” for the contest. Click on the picture to check out that necklace!! That was totally amazing Jenny!
Both of them were experimenting with Lace, which is a really fun way to decorate the skin. Dots and tear drops, and patience can do amazing things!
JOJO THE CLOWN (JOANNE DORME), I like how she put her real name in parenthesis, submitted this really cool full face design that totally has a wild streak running through it! I feel like she was exploring the world of asymmetry and the magic of white dots on black! The blue she used is totally gorgeous too….what is it JOJO? Keep this design in mind when Mardi Gras season is upon us!
