Life Book with Mindy Lacefield...

We are still celebrating "Connections" in the Life Book workshop, and this week we focused on friendship.  Our guest instructor was Mindy Lacefield; whose work I've been a fan of for a long time!  It was so much fun to learn from her creative process!  Here's how my page turned out...

I think the biggest thing I learned from Mindy was shading a face with paint without really even drawing it first!  It made me realize that the process doesn't have to be complicated. 

While I was painting this, I kept smearing the extra little dabs onto a blank page in my Book of Days; and I ended up with a pretty nice background!  I will show you that next time, hopefully along with the completed version of the page!

I hope you are having an awesome week, and I will see you soon!

Love your page Michelle, I always find it very hard to draw faces. These look great with beautiful colored eyes. And the rest of the page is also lovely

this is so adorable!!!! I love it! You know, I made a "lifebook" for Anne after we adopted her from China - I wonder if this is kind of the same thing? It is what got me interested in scrapbooking and art!!!
