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.
I took a different path to the office this morning and found this gorgeous tree overloaded woth blossoms.
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.

Hollyhock on Cortes Island, BC has a beautiful garden. Mr. Thompson and I have made three trips to this gorgeous place: twice for Jim Kerwin’s go workshop and once for a week’s vacation.
