I got busy this weekend and created two girls from Tamara’s bonus lesson. She talks about creating in different size of journals. This is a FREE YouTube lesson go see it it’s Linked Up!
It looks suspiciously like the previous girl I created for Week 17, but I made a second one using my own imagination and I think you will see the big difference.
Well, get a cup of coffee and relax by looking at a few pictures.
The difference between this one and the one I did last time is the face. The other one was 3/4 and this is full front. I followed along with Tamara, but it ended up looking too much like her work. Never the less, here are a few closeups.
This is the upper left with my whimsical town and flowers.
In the lower right, I used my own handwriting to write Live Lightly and Love your Life. The flower on her neck is on that Tamara used – I like it and will use it again in another project.
This is the closeup of the girl. She has such a sweet face – so serene. Don’t you think? I used my white paint sharpie and added doodles as well as my black pitt pen to add the black zentangles on the upper left.
The next day, I pushed myself to create my own girl and I just went with the flow. While I was talking to my sister, I drew some zentangle doodles on the upper part of the page.
I used an older watercolor piece I started but never finished. All I had on this page was the drips in different colors. I used clear gesso after I drew the face and finished it up with acrylics. I also used some transparent paints on her hair and love the effect!
You can see I used my black pen and outlined the drips creating segments where I could zentangle. The doodles on the top are called dangle designs.
I colored each segment with different colors and wrote words to create a mosaic.
You can see the house with the dangle designs and the word FAITH. Isn’t that bird cute? Yes, it’s a bird, I know it looks like a fish LOL!
I think the little bug on the upper right corner looks like an ant!
This is the closeup of the face. I have a thing for green eyes and red hair. I must have Irish in my blood!!
I hope you enjoyed looking through these projects as much as I did creating them!
Until next time, happy crafting!!
