Lifebook 2013

So I decided to sign up for LifeBook 2013, a year-long online mixed media art class, run by Tamara Laporte. I wanted to learn new techniques and thought it was a great deal. The inner journey hocus pocus thingy I thought I’d just ignore. My oh my, what was I thinking! Did I suddenly lose my brain? Art is about self-expression, at least it is for me. I belive that it is impossible to create something without putting a part of yourself in it. So of course I am doing the inner journey hocus pocus thingy 😉 as well as learning new techniques.

I have to get my scanner up and running (I have a very temperamental HP multiprinter/scanner) before I can show you pics of my work. The camera lightens everything up and distorts the colors so that it doesn’t seem like my work anymore so I feel that I need the scanner for these mixed media paintings.

Birthday card with cupcakes

Birthday card made in half an hour. I used two freebe stamps from Cardmaking & Papercraft Magazine and promarkers and of course some Time Holtz Stickles glitter glue on a plain white card. I also drew a fine black line to connect the hearts and make it all come together. Stamped a message to the birthday lady on the inside.
