Now that my book is finished and production will start in May, I am finding some time to play in my studio. This is week seven of Life Book 2014. It was a great class. However, it was out of my comfort zone. I gave it a try anyway since I promised myself I will do all classes provided this year.
The first picture is the front page which is filled entirely with collage papers and water color crayons, ink pen and and oil pastels. The middle of the page is a book which opens and shows a pop-up. You will see the pop-up on the second picture.
Jane Davenport taught this wonderful class and her sample is absolutely beautiful, nothing like mine. I now know I do not like pop-ups of any kind. My work is more simplified in style. Her original example was much different than this. It was a drawing of a sun, lady and beautiful eyes. I decided not to attempt her version and did my own design. I am working on faces but have not perfected it yet.
I am missing my visual journal pages. I have been so busy I haven’t worked in my journal book for several months. This is where I do my best work. However, this is a class and just maybe, I will learn some new skills I will love.
Take care friends…and have a great weekend.
