Life Book 2015 – Week 48

Can you believe the year is almost over?  I can’t!  But you will be seeing more creations because I’ve enrolled in the Life Book 2016!

We only have three more classes and then we’ll learn to bind all our work in a book.  I can hardly wait!  I’ve been wanting to learn how to bind pages for a journal since I started my mixed media journey.

I don’t recall if I told you the theme for this month – kind of late because this is the last class for November – any way the theme was Celebration and Play.

Since I just started working with watercolor media, this lesson really interested me.

Danielle Donaldson‘s lesson was all about “My Favorite Things” – It’s a celebrating of what makes me me.  We worked with pencil, watercolors and our imagination to create an illustration of our favorite things.  I practiced small scale illustrations and then colored them with a tiny brush and watercolors.

I enjoyed writing my name with the brush and watercolor – although she kept saying it would be hard, I found it quite enjoyable.

On this one I tried a little different font, and my names farther apart from each other and my L came out better.

And lastly, I tried different colors of ink and splattered watercolor with my paintbrush.

Then we doodled on a piece of Bristol paper…

…and put it all together!

I hope this inspires you to create some of your favorite things in watercolor!

Thanks for stopping by!

One thought on “Life Book 2015 – Week 48

  1. I love your favourite things page. All the wee drawings are lovely. I also didn’t find the watercolour writing too challenging. I rather enjoyed it and think I will do it find and again.

    I am so glad you are going to be doing LB 2016 because I am too!
