Tamara Laporte provided the first lesson for this year-long course, a warm-up assignment to create a Fairy Art Mother (or Father). Mine is pictured below. I've never used watercolor crayons before, so it's been fun trying new techniques.
Our second lesson was also taught by Tamara. This is "My Journey" for the coming year. In the clouds are my blessings, and in the sunflowers are my goals. I had to make the background from acrylics, as I didn't have watercolors at the time (I do now).
I'm a bit behind, but have at least started most of the Lifebook assignments thus far. This is my Week 2 assignment (taught by Monica Zuniga). This time I had watercolor paints on hand for the background. I worked pretty quickly, and it was fun blending the colors. I had to dig out stamps I've never used but have accumulated throughout the years. And where did I get all these inkpads?
Week 3's "New Blooms" assignment was taught by Christy Tomlinson. I'm quite proud of my artsy background. I used text from an old book, a piece of a map from an atlas, tissue paper from an old clothing pattern, washi tape, paint, inks, colored tissue paper, gesso, foil, and fabric.
Tam has also given us a creative prompt ~ Free Falling:
