"Faces" – Postcard

This week’s Sunday Postcard Art challenge was "Faces."

I started with an idea, but in the end, it didn't come out the way I had envisioned it. Then I tried to salvage my efforts. My original design was 4" wide by 6" high but I thought it didn't look right, so I rotated it sideways and modified it. I took one last look at my original one, thinking I was going to delete it, but it didn't look as bad as I had originally thought it did. Can you tell I'm suffering from indecisiveness? Anyway, I don't think these are my best work, but I'm posting them. I'm having a lot of difficulty tapping into my creative side lately due to personal circumstances that are weighing heavily on me.

I created these using GIMP 2.8.10.

The vintage woman profile image is from a DuckDuckGo search.

I think they both work beautifully, Anne. So elegant. If I had to choose, I think the first one works a little better for me but it's a close run thing.

There is definitely art deco spirit in both of these. I like the geometric backgrounds behind profiles.

I've noticed too that creativity is a sensitive mood - I hope things get better for you!
