I found this lesson hard, not sure why, but I did enjoy painting the tiny flowers and plants as well as practicing lettering.

Lifebook 2014 – Positive Life Connections

In this class we had to emphasise positive connections in our lives via mixed media, using layering and brayering and a paint over collage technique for the face.
I think everyone should have butterflies in their hair…

Lifebook – The joy of intention

This Lifebook lesson required us to ‘be in the moment’ and use layers of acrylic ink, paint and collage to make a statement about the now.
I really enjoyed writing with a brush and inks.

An older woman’s face – pencil

I decided to try to draw this girl’s face as an older woman of 60+ years.

Lifebook 2014 – Spray inks with paper cuts

I enjoyed the spray ink lesson so much that I decided to make another one, this time using layered papercuts.

I sprayed and splattered Dylusions ink sprays onto the page, sketched out the side profile head and checked the placement of the painted silhouette cameo paper cuts.

Then I added details to the face.
