Well, here I am again bringing you some exciting projects – ha!
As I said in my last post, one of my favorite lessons with Tam was the gorgeous swan girl.
Second time I’ve worked on two pages so it did take a while and I spent way too much time playing with my background. But I am very pleased to bring you my rendition.
This is the right side of the page before I changed the doodling.
This is the finished piece. I attached the two pages so I could take pictures of the whole project by using painters tape on the back and on the sides.
I played around with the left side and the deer appeared looking surprised. I also used a stencil for the various images and a Unity Stamp for the arrows.
I made the bottom of this page with a stencil using green molding paste as well as the body of the swan. The bottom doodle is a combination of my imagination and a Pinterest idea.
After googling for some Native American symbols I found out the Thunderbird I had stenciled represented the “Bearer of Happiness.” How appropriate!
I also added more stencils on the borders.
The heart is colored with watercolors paints and I also added more symbols and stenciled with molding paste.
I’m very pleased with the way this girl’s face came out. I also added some feathers on her head-dress and a necklace on her neck.
And, finally the swan’s head.
My daughter really like this and asked me not to give it away, but since is part of Life Book 2015, I’ll have to make her a canvas. Hopefully it will look like this page as well.
Thanks you dear friends for stopping by. I’m almost caught up posting all my projects for this year.
Happy creating everyone,

You did a great job with this lesson, Carmen. I like that you invested meaning in your doodles. The swan’s head is lovely.
Thanks Laura, you’re so kind. I have three or four more lessons to catch up. I’ve been enjoying reading about your fabulous trip to Cancún also.
I look forward to seeing your other lessons. Are you doing LB next year too?
Just recently started to follow your blog. Would you recommend Life book? I have enjoyed reading about your projects.
Absolutely! I have learned so much in my art journey from those years-long class. There are a few free videos you can try and see if you like it.
Yes, Laura, I’m doing LB 2016. I hope I am better prepared so I don’t fall back again!
