Lifebook 2016 – A few of my Art Journal Pages

LB2016header900I have been progressing through the class very well so far.  I am mostly up-to-date with the once-per-week classes.  I’ve enjoyed most of them, but have to admit I am enjoying my watercolor classes much more.

Some of the pages speak to me very much and I’ve enjoyed the art process.  Some of them seem to have a basis in pain and healing, etc.  I just don’t have that experience in my life – not in a way I feel I need to art journal about to as a cathartic experience.  Some of the pages are fun with many, many layers of paper, stamps, writing, stencils, etc.  But after a few of these pages in a row, I need a break.  I feel like I am just piling on art products just to use them and make a mess.

Here are a few of the pages I’ve completed.  Out of respect to Tamara Laporte, I am not going to elaborate on the theme or instructions for these pages.  It is a paid online class after all.  I do recommend the journey.  Overall I am enjoying and will continue to complete pages and update some here.

Lifebook 2016 – A Year-Long Art Journaling Class

LB2016header900I have been searching YouTube for various scrapbook tutorials and new products.  I kept coming across videos on Art Journaling.  I particular liked Tamara Laporte’s video.  They weren’t just art journaling.  She also was teaching how to draw stylized female characters.  It looked like so much fun!  I signed up and tried a few of her classes online and here are a few of my completed pieces:  I’ve never done anything like this before.  I was drawing!  drawing Faces!  And they didn’t look half bad.  I’ll continue to post my finished projects as I continue through her classes.
