Life Book Fairy Art Mother

She's nearly finished, my
Fairy Art Mother
page from
Life Book 2013

Loving the glitter!

I decided to change the
text bubbles with
blank ones so I can
change out the phrasing
as per the mood and situation...

I'm very pleased.

And now I need to following my
Fairy Art Mother's advice...

My jewelry 

I love bits and bobs,
don't you my friends?

Half of week one nearly finished...

I'm happy with the background
and the shape of my
fairy art mother...
Life Book 2013

Putting my water colour paint brushes
to good use...

Normally I wouldn't add a crown,
but I am following the prompts
from the class just so
I can enjoy the 'act' of creating... 

I like it so far...

I like her sweet face!

I like the 'washed' look of this,
however, I want to add something to it...

Boarder added!
I'm not pleased with
the text bubbles though.
I may have to change these.

I'm very happy with the
glittery bits
I added to the wings!

Work in Process...

I'm continuing to work
on my 1st week of
Life Book 2013

And my goal is to
allow the process
be my central joy
of all exercises...

So often, I focus
on the perfection and end
results of so
many of my art projects...
I'm forcing myself to let go and
let ART take over...

One small gradual step at a time.

I'm hoping to relax
be at peace.

So far, I am truly enjoying the process...

Week One's Journal Page

Starting the new year with an
online journey...
I'm participating in Tamara Laporte's
Life Book 2013

And I've decided to
let the process be
my main joy.

And I'm willing
to try and not
get too 'fixed'
on the end result!
Wish me luck friends :)

Snow Day!

One of my crocheted hearts in snow.
Can you see the detailed snow flake?

"It's cold...I don't want to walk on it!"

"I'm too short to walk in snow!
Carry me now human!"

I love walking while it's snowing!

Stay warm friends!

At The Art Table

Working on new projects

Inspired by memories
of my European travels

Doodles that keep my hands busy
while my mind is off on
some mental adventure...

Pure inspiration!
