LB lessons

 all lessons for lifebook. honoring my Mom-enjoying a cup of tea together
 this is an art journal--hand made covers, and crinkled inside pages--if you crinkle them, you arent so afraid to make a mistake-frees you up to just PLAY

 /wip journal page "open your heart and mind
 big eyed girl  "what does your heart say"
 these 2 were done with flora bowley-just adding layers that feel good and right-till you are happy with it.  These 2 were also dropped in the hospital for someone to find and enjoy. Check it out at "Art Abandonment"

15 min a day journal

I have had problems getting going on an art journal.  this lesson from lifebook2014 really helped. you spend 15 min a day doing only 1 layer, and tada-a page in less than a week .  toooooooo fun

A pencil portrait for lifebook.
this is ways to use dimensional embellishments
the last shot is a side view of the spider-he is beads attached w/E6000.
same with the owl-just a charm
the next is the edge of the angel card-you can see the feather and brad sticking up
next is shells hanging with twisted wire
the baby chunkie has buttons and charms
especially popular with chunkies-fibers and charms as a long dangle

long time no write

Holy cow, I dont know where the year went.  Had 2 major projects   in Jan.-artzona and the sketchbook.  Feb. is a blur and I broke my right arm in March and am just now recovering-still a way to go, but driving and am in physical therapy .
so, no art since then
Hoping to get back to Lifebook next week
