Some new creations made from lessons in Life Book

I can't believe it's August time is flying by!  I continued my journey with Life Book again this year. Life Book is a year long art group with online lessons from so many great artists.  I haven't been able to do every lesson this year as I would have liked to(there are so many you really get your money's worth!) but I recently finished two pieces from weeks 30 and 31. See below.

This one above I call Sassy Girl.  It is from week 30 with artist Dina Wakely.  It's on a 8" by 10" canvas board. Stamps, stencils, acrylics, water colors, rub ons and inks were used to create this piece.

This one is called, "My Journey, My Choice" it is in honor of a friend that has been going through some tough times right now.  It is from the lesson created by Jeanette Maisy House for week 31.
It is on water color paper. I used, acrylics, water color, molding paste, white pen, pencil and prima color pencils.  The black wings are from a kids box set that I found in a second hand store. The set had everything butterflies. Books, stickers, stencils and tattoo's.  These were from a page that was supposed to look like stained glass. The raised ornate pieces are stickers I found on clearance I think at Michaels a while back. They are bright white but I used some black paint over them to blend them better into the painting.

I really enjoyed creating these pieces. I even shrunk down a copy of My Journey and created a necklace. See below.

Happy Creating!
