Mixed Medium with Shari Carroll: Jane Davenport Making Faces

Mixed Medium with Shari Carroll

Welcome everyone!!! I’ve had a playdate with Jane Davenports Making Faces products. Wow, are they fun!!

I will admit that I felt a bit out of my wheelhouse when I sat down to start this project (I’m not much of a make-up wearer), but with the guides that Jane Davenport offered in the front cover of the Contoured Face Paper Pad, I was able to jump in and go to town.

I used the Birthday Suit pastel set to apply the facial colors then added deeper colors for contouring using blender sponges and foam batons. I’ve used the Colorstick Gel Crayons to add bright colors to her hair, blending with my finger and batons.  

I ended up trimming around her hair at the top and mounted the piece onto black cardstock followed by Audrey Blue cardstock to match her eye color. As a finishing touch, I added a thin bead of glue and glitter streaks to her hair.

I’ll break down some of these primary products for this project so you’ll have a better idea of how they are used. 


Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you’re as excited as I am about this line of products!! I can’t wait to create another one.
