Sissy and Missy...

...are very large face stamps.  And not so easy for me to be crafty with.  A couple of posts back I mentioned that I love Renee's creativity with Sissy.  Renee's creations are on large envelopes but I'm not sure of the exact size.  I wanted the face to appear quite large, so I used 6" X 9" envelopes (and because I have lots of them).  A meager beginning, but a beginning none the less.
 
 
 
I got greedy and thought I had to have both sides of the face.
 
 
 
I don't know why now.  I hope to find a good reason soon.  Not that it really matters.

I need to work on how to work things out at the top of her head.  Renee solves that problem with 3-D accessorizing.  But I want things flat for mailing, so I'll have to muse on this for awhile. 
 
My first stamping, of course, went awry and was crooked on the envelope, blah blah blah.  Rather than toss the envelope, I cut out the face, colored it and added it to my blog/flickr friends journal that I add art to here and there. 
 

Maybe the solution for the top of the head is to keep it at the top of the page or envelope.  Hmmm

And of course I had to add a "face" to my altered dictionary.

 
 
These large face stamps that I've been addicted to lately have me intrigued and stumped at the same time.  I hope that's only temporary.
 
Off in search of more play time!

I really like this image! She'd be cool with a tulle "hat" and veil, too! So much fun Annie!

Fabulous faces with their lips and eyes and I like what you have done to the neck and top of the heads. In fact I like the one you have in your journal best and was highly amused by the accompanying text. And, of course, the face to illustrate the word "face" is just perfect there.

I LOVE what you did with the stamps, the envelopes are fab as is the dictionary page. I had a big smile on my face while looking at all of them! Of course you needed them both. Best to you~Renee

Where oh where did you find that wonderful large stamp? She has a mystery about her - looks great in your dictionary!

Okay Annie - let's try this one more time. I left a short comment because Google blocked me out and it took forever to get them to let me comment!! I love your face and I am intrigued by the envelope art. Your dictionary pages are wonderful. Now is that a very large face stamp or is that a small dictionary!!! What a stance - I think this lady has been ridding the range too long. Love your art work and your printing - I still cannot get over your picture perfect printing!

She's quite lovely - I can see why you're intrigued by her. I love that you took an oopsie and made it into something else that is equally as beautiful as the envelope to Carol. :)

The faces came out beautiful! Love the vogue girl too!

Wow! Such a big face on a book is simply stunning! I wonder what she’s doing there? Just kidding! The idea may be bizarre but it’s cool, it’s groovy! I love it! I find her pretty too with her big black eyes. Anyway, keep it up coz’ you’ve got a gift.
