Hello friends, today is Sunday and I’m getting over a headache. I hadn’t had a chance to post my project because I felt it was not quite finished.
The wonderful Patti Ballard was the teacher on Life Book 2015 this week. She posted a bonus project for us and I must admit, I had some issues with it because the girl she painted is not my style, but I decided to follow her video which was in fast speed and see what I could come up with.
I took some circus themed papers and used them as background for this tight rope walker.
I was a little bummed out because my watercolor paper got all warped, but I learned my lesson. From now on, I will tape it to the paper pack and it should hold its shape.
By the way, I started a watercolor class at El Paso Community College and I learned several tips on working with watercolor paper and watercolor paint that will help me a lot during the Life Book class as well.
Here is the close up of the face:
The eyes are so small, I could get any details done on it; so I’m going to draw another one, just for me in my style and see how it comes out. Yes, my inner critic is fighting with me – “no good, no good” Arrgh Must. Not. Listen.
Here’s another view of the top of the page. You can see the collaged paper a little bit better:
And here is the bottom of the page. You can see how I added glitter to her skirt and a close up of the quote by David Niven that I thought was very appropriate for this page.
Stay tuned for more Life Book. Every Monday we get a new project!! Yay!!
Thanks for stopping by today!!
