  • Celebration Journey!

    I have finally finished part two of Life Book Week 1! I had so much fun creating this – thank you Tam for such a great lesson! I chose an aeroplane as my mode of travel as I have have only just got my passport and have never yet flown. I intend to take my first flight in 2013!

    Celebration Journey - Life Book 2013, Week 1

    I created my background using watercolour paint and rock salt, then added a collage of the plane, which I coloured using neocolour crayons, combined with a picture of me. I created the flowers using circles punched from old magazines then added the details using a uniball eye pen and watercolour pencils. Having already stuck the plane to the page, I then decided I wanted some buildings behind it! Nothing like planning for getting things in the right order! I photocopied a book drew the buildings using the uniball eye pen, then coloured them using watercolour pencils. Then I had to cut them to fit round the plane! Next came the clouds, using the uniball pen and white gesso, and the sun using the uniball pen, yellow acrylic and neocolour crayons. Lastly I added the text digitally after scanning.

    Phew! All done just in time to start Week 2. Roll it on!

    Life Book 2013!

    Yes! – the first Life Book class for 2013 is up and is not disappointing. As always – Tam gives such excellent value for money. This weeks lesson has two parts to it! This is my interpretation of the first part.

    Fairy Art Mother - Life Book 2013, Week 1

    I created the background using neocolour crayons, then drew my Fairy Art Mother in pencil and coloured her using more neocolour crayons. I liked the way she looked on the page so rather than adding my text to the physical page, I added it digitally after scanning her.

    I’m off to get on with the main project now – see you later!
