Life Book 2013
I've just realized that I haven't posted any more of my Life Book 2013 class except for the "warm-up" Fairy Art Mother. Of course I am already hopelessly behind since I am also working on other online classes, but it's okay. I have enough time to catch up, and I don't think that I am doing every week's "assignment". Some don't speak to me as much as others, and I'd rather have fun with the ones I feel tempted to do. I also don't want to show all of them since some are very personal and for my eyes only. But - today there are two assignments I'd like to share with you.
The first is the black and white image on top, "Scales of Light". I worked with white pastels on black cardstock, a first for me, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I used Schmincke pastels which are incredibly soft and just wonderful to work with.
One week the topic was "Celebration and courage" - I painted myself with the "shadow" of a mountain lion behind me. Unfortunately I couldn't create this in the way it was supposed to be - the woman should have been covered with masking fluid while we would spray over her, then remove the masking fluid and paint the clothes and hair etc. in. Well, when I opened my small bottle of masking fluid it had all dried up (the same thing happened to Tam in the video!), so I drew the woman on cardstock, cut her out and attached her.
This week's lesson as well as from two weeks ago are really tempting and I hope to do them real soon. Hopefully, I can post them here.
