Faces With Layers of Character

This page began with an attempt to cover up the yellow/orange star showing through from the previous page.  I painted blue acrylic over the page, but it wasn't thick enough, and the star remained.  Not sure where I was headed, I stamped some words on the background and added a collaged frame.  Then I stopped, not knowing how to complete the page.  This was months (or years?) ago, and I only added the face recently.  It is drawn with Stabilo pencils.

This is part of my project to finish up old art journals.  It is amazing how a face takes on more character when drawn over other layers and I'm often drawing faces when I don't know how else to complete the page.
