Revolutionary lettering....

I have a very nice sketchbook that is about 5" x 5" so I worked in there a bit. Put some paint down, sprayed a little Glimmermist, then did some lettering with green India Ink and a DIP pen!! A little stenciling too.
Just playin'.

First Life Book Page

Here's my first page for Tam's class.  This is the first time I have drawn and colored a face.  Definitely room for improvement but I'm pleased with this as a first outing.  The words on the page are some of our positive qualities.

I am feeling quite ENGAGED these days.

Life Book 2012 Underway!!

I found out about this class via my friend Tracy Verdugo on Facebook.  After reading the class description for a whopping 30 seconds (!!!) and seeing Tamara's article in the current issue of Somerset Studio, i signed on post haste.
Here is a sketch from the first video I watched today.  I have NEVER drawn a face before and have had major anxiety around this!!  Tam is so encouraging and loving in her instruction, and breaks the process down into manageable steps.  Will get this page done in the next few days <3

The theme is celebrating our goddess powers.  I used a drawing of Athena, which i found online, as a basis for this sketch, since I feel most aligned with her.
