Hi ho, friends. Life Book Week 7 had 2 lessons. This post is about Tam's mini lesson, featuring a quirky bird. I loved her Quirky Birds lesson from Life Book 2014 and had a lot of fun with this one. I watched some of this lesson. This week was in the middle of Noir City, … Continue reading Life Book Week 7
Hi ho friends. Life Book Week 6 is a main lesson with Tam. I love Tam and her videos, but there were 2 hours of video and I had to get my household chores done in preparation for Noir City 2018 the following week, so my time was limited. I watched her intro video and … Continue reading Life Book Week 6
Hi ho lovelies, In my quest to settle into regular posts, I am starting a new feature: Art In Depth. I'll get into the details of selected pieces of art.

But I couldn't resist between the teachers and the deep dive into style development. … Continue reading Ever After WIP

Week 11 Your Inner & Outer World with Jane Davenport. One of my favorite pages. Week 12 was an artist interview, which was good because I spent … Continue reading Life Book 2015 Weeks 10-13
Yeah, it's nearly Spring, but Tam had a sale at her Etsy shop and I ordered 2 classes: Summer Girls and A Christmas Whimsy. I started with Summer Girls and realized how much I missed the weekly Life Book Lessons. And signed up for Life Book 2015 as soon as I finished this girl. I … Continue reading My Summer Girl
My friend Marva invited me to join her upcoming Krampus themed show at Bedlam Coffee next month. Most of my pieces are altered digital photos of Marva in her awesome Krampus costume. I really wanted to include a mixed media art piece. I sketched a few whimsical Krampuses and they were OK. It wasn't until … Continue reading Whimsical Krampus Handmaiden
