Two more outstanding lessons for us this week in Life Book 2015 provided by Jill K. Berry and Violette Clark
Jill’s video was about creating a Heart Community Book with characters representing the people in our lives who encourage us of inspire us in our artistic journey. For my theme I chose Alice in Wonderland. Most of my family knows me as Alicia (Alice) so I thought it would be appropriate to make each of these figures to represent members of my family
The Queen of Hearts represents my mom. She was so creative and had a big heart! She would make us paper dolls and the clothes and furniture to go with them.
Alice represents my daughter. She has inspired me since she was a little girl playing with her dolls and writing in her journal. She is also an artist and my biggest fan.
The Knave of Hearts represents my BFF who started me crafting right after I went through Cancer treatments and surgery. She knew I had problems with my fingers and couldn’t cut with scissors so she introduced me to the Cricut and the rest is history!! She is also very funny, creative, caring, and playful!
And last but not least, The Mad Hatter represents my husband. Although he is always complaining about my craft room, supplies, and shopping, he is also very supportive of the things I’m involved in.
For the faces I used Peachy Keen stamps Wide Eyed Kids Assortment, watercolor pencils, markers, acrylic paint and cardstock to paper piece the clothes.
I still have one more project to do and I will post that as soon as I finish.
Have an awesome weekend, my friends, and happy crafting!!
As promised, here is the project I made for Violette Clark‘s bonus lesson.
This one represents what we love about our community or our home and it includes the Kingdom Hall where I worship.
Close up view of my “Magical House” and the words that make it perfect for me and my life.
Love, Respect, Honor, Jehovah God, Peace, Caring, Brotherhood.
This is a close up of the girl. I drew just half of the girl’s face and used markers, watercolor crayons, acrylic and a bit of glitter. I tried to make her look like Frida Kalo, but didn’t quite achieve it. I did draw her prominent eyebrows and added flowers in her hair.
Thanks for stopping by and see you here for the next Life Book lesson.
