Life Book Lessons 50 and 51

Week 50 –  Celebration and Play with Effy Wild

Sunlight and Roses

This was such a lovely project, but I did not want to take the time to draw every flower and draw doodles all over because I’m running out of time. Effy Wild, really took her time to create her project and I loved it.

Instead, I got one of my flower stamps and using distress markers I made a frame for my journaling.  I like the soft colors in this one.


This is a close up of the top of the page…


…and a little bit more close up.


I also used Sakura jelly roll metalic pens and outlined the flowers with my Sharpie pen.

Week 51 – Celebration Gratitude and Learning

with Jeanne Oliver – The Big Picture

 Jean Oliver shared a video about her gratitude exercises with us and a PDF to remind us about the little things we want to see clearly, especially at this very busy time of the year.

Tam also included a painterly face project and we got to write all the things we were grateful and that made us happy.

She had us take a selfie and then copy it to our paper and see what would come out.  Ha, the only things that look like me is my eyebrows and my short hair.


I really like the face, especially the color.  The neck is kind of weird and I was wearing a t-shirt, so the bottom is not too fancy.  Here’s a close up.


And instead of a lot of embellishments I just wrote the title of the painting on the front of the t-shirt.


I have a lot to be thankful for and I could just keep writing on the back of the page.

I have one more lesson in Life Book 2015, and then I will be binding all the projects I did during the year.

I will post that next.

Thanks for stopping by,

Make some art today!

  1. You did a great job with both of these lessons. I love the delicate little flowers framing your piece for the Effy Wild lesson. You did a great job painting the face in Tam’s lesson too. I didn’t even attempt to base mine on a selfie so I don’t think likenesses matter much.

    1. Thanks Laura. I’m just glad I was able to catch up and finish doing the lessons; although Tam says not to stress over it. Sorry I haven’t had a chance to visit your blog. My niece has been in ICU and my sister has had a couple of court hearing relevant to her daughter’s care and I’ve been trying to support her as much as I can. This week I’ll have time to look around your blog. Thanks for stopping by.

      1. I’m very sorry to read about your niece. I hope she receives the best care possible and makes a full recovery. I’m glad you can be there for your sister to support her through this. My best wishes and good thoughts to all.
