Life Book Week 2, 3, 4 and 5

Week 2, Part 2, Tam showed us how to create a wonderful, colorful hummingbird.  It's tail feathers have positive affirmations (if you chose to include those) written on scrapbook, cardstock, and other random papers.  All glued to watercolor paper.  This was a fun lesson!

Week 3, Misty Mawn's lesson is titled, "the person I know best".  This is sort of a selfie, but she carried hers a step further.  After painting a somewhat decent selfie, she wanted us to paint OVER this all whimsical and funky.  But I just couldn't do it.  I took me too long to get this even looking remotely good, so I left it.  

Week 4, Mandy van Goeije created these way cool story boards from Stick figures.  Who knew you could be so artistic with stick figures!  I got a little carried away with just drawing a page full of stick people, most doing yoga poses.  But super fun. 

Week 5, Wendy Brightbill introduced us to ABSTRACT art with a lesson titled, "Paint your Intention".  Her's was so serene and calming.  Mine is wild and vibrant and bold.  I actually had painted an abstract similar to this one on a very large scale for one of my daughter's school friends, so I wanted to try and recreate it.  My word this year is Balance, so I included it in my painting.  I love how this turned out.  I may actually create another page of abstract just because it was fun. and out of the norm for me.
