Flying High with Tamara Laporte

This was Tam’s lesson for August on Life Book 2015. As always it was a fun piece to do, just floating away on top of the world. Lots of modeling paste was used on this piece. I created the stencil for the flowers on the hill using my cuttlebug and a piece of transparency.

Traced hand with Rachael Rice for Life Book 2015

When Rachael Rice created this hand with an eye and healing symbols. I wanted to do something different, something that would have meaning for me. Following the shining sun, soaring with the crows as they float on the thermals created by that sun has a lot of meaning to me. The sun is the most healing thing I know. My aches and pains feel so much better and I love the warmth it gives me and it lights up my world. My hand has a stylized sun and soaring crows with three more crows in my sky. If you look closely you can see the bumps of my arthritis and the way my fingers are slightly bending from the bumps. The sun’s heat is making the hands feel so much better so I can continue with my art.
