Lovin' the Layer Class

I finished 2 more pages in the Layer Love class. I thought the blue/green page was my favorite, until I finished the gold class. I love the colors and texture which were hard to capture with my camera. I still need to finish each with a focal, but here is what I have so far.

This feels like a water page, but I'm also thinking butterflies, birds, fireflies?

I haven't any idea what to add to this one...any suggestions? Maybe a face, or just some calligraphy??
I hope your weekend is good!

The Red Page

I'm taking Julie Prichard's Layer Love class and finished my first project. There are 9 in the class, so I still have a ways to go! Here is the "red" page. (paints courtesy of my daughter and son-in-law!)

There were several steps and I had to watch the video 3x's but I really learned some new and fun techniques. And now I'm off to do the blue page.

Pencils and Calligrafun!

I'm still reading Lee Hammond's book and tried another of her drawings. This one is a little brighter, due to the fixative I sprayed once I was finished. I'm really having fun with my pencils!

I also finished Martha Lever's class "Calligrafun." She named it right! It was fun! I've really been practicing but still have a long way to go. Here is a start anyway...

Martha's flower pots were so cute, I had to try her technique!

Well, back to my craft room to practice some more!
