Paint over Collage

October 4, 2015

Having fun with my Lifebook 2015 classes. This is a paint over collage technique taught by Tamara Laporte. It is ingenious! I may never try drawing faces again. Just kidding. I bet there is a way to do this on a cloth doll, especially if it is flat faced. Something to think about!

 

More LifeBook

You know I haven't made a doll in nearly two years now.. Not sure why not. I I still sew on occasion although it's usually a knitting bag for me or a gift. I am still creative but my creativity has moved in a different direction. I always have something on my knitting needles now. That started about 9 or 10 years ago just because it was something I was wanted to learn. It turned into my community. I have a weekly knitting group that I attend since the doll group died. I am also really enjoying all the mixed-media work i am doing. I think to myself oh, I should make a doll out of this, but I never do. Maybe someday. In the meantime I am just enjoying myself.

This piece was taught by Patty Ballard in the LIFEBOOK course.

 

 

 

Don’t let it get you down

February 3, 2015

It's always something! I developed trigger thumb in my right hand recently and had to have surgery to fix it. Doesn't it just figure that I would get new art supplies in the mail when I can't use them. Grrrr. I decided to try to draw anyhow. No use of my thumb but since this was drawn really loosely I thought I could do it! And I did! Really happy with this. It's a bonus lesson from lifebook 2015. I'm behind in class now but hopefully I'll catch up soon. So here's my 'Affirmation Feather' (and my lovely bandage).

 

Life Book 2015 and Doll Club

January 6, 2015

Happy New Year! My gift to myself for 2015 is a year long art journaling class called LIFE BOOK 2015. There is a different teacher each week so it should be quite the learning experience. I was really excited to see that the first lesson was a whimsical creature. The lesson was titled The Beacon of Light and this is my little girl.

I think she would make a great little doll.
Last month one of the girls who was in my old doll club got in touch with me because she wants to try to revive our doll club. We got together for coffee and decided to have a winter only club that meets the second Saturday of the month at a coffee shop. We are going to use Facebook to organize and share information. Wish us luck!
