Reflections of you with Jeanne Oliver for Life Book 2015

My latest piece for Life Book 2015 was so much fun. Jeane Oliver had us scanning magazines for patterns to tear and add to our page. I am a pattern junky and have been saving patterns for years as well as creating them in Photoshop and Photoshop Elements. She also took us through using a transfer as well as a printed copy of ourselves as a base. I do not own a laser printer so opted on a painted face and stamps for this piece.

Ocean Bottom ATCs for the AFTCM yahoo group

I love creating ATCs … these were made for the Art For the Creative Mind Yahoo Group. Pearled water paints on home made paper made the background. The angel fish and the sea horse were made with a stencil and a mix of modeling paste and acrylics. Seaweed was pulled from a piece of shiny cord and the bottom was made with a piece of burlap.

Light and Shadow, Apple with Tamara Laporte

This week’s Life Book 15 lesson brought us a discussion about light and shadow with Lynn Whipple plus a lesson on light and shadow while drawing an apple with Tamara Laporte. This was another fun lesson, as I love light and shadow which adds so much depth to a piece. Thanks to Tamara I am becoming comfortable with graphite and using it as an art medium rather than just as a pencil for getting a sketch down on paper. I ordered a graphite stick and used it for the first time on this piece and I love the freedom the stick gives me.
