Life Book Week 9

Hi ho friends.

Life Book Week 9 had 2 lessons.  This post is about the mini lesson with Effy Wild. I’m familiar with Effy’s style, so I downloaded and reviewed the pdf and remembered that I’d painted over some journaling.  This lesson was a great way to make use of the background.

I mixed some gold mica flakes with Finnabair gold mica power and smeared the mixture around the pages with a palette knife.

The flowers were drawn with Pitt big brush pens.  I used Finnabair soft gel to glue down the tissue paper with the words written in Pitt pens.

I enjoyed this lesson and I like the way these pages turned out. It reminded me of one of Effy’s previous Life Book lessons, which I also enjoyed.

Radiant Faces Lesson 3

Lesson 3 of Radiant Faces is with Christy Tomlinson who has what I call a whimsical impressionist style.

I tried working the entire piece with her supplies, but it was trickier than I thought.

My Girly Girl was done with Stabilo pencil, acrylics, Pitt pens, Collage Pauge, alcohol ink, various papers, Stayzon ink, stamps, stencils, and Prisma pencils on 9 x 12 canvas.

I am enjoying the class and it is stretching my skills. I’m not totally in love with her but I like her. I want to try Christy’s techniques again because I like the idea of shading with Pitt pens.
