Back on Lifebook 2018

After 20 weeks of starting Lifebook 2018, and losing track after 3 weeks, I have decided that it was time to pick the lessons up again. I’m not doing all lessons, just picking and choosing at the moment as free time is always a rare thing for me.

I have been inspired full blast with weeks 5 and 6 lessons, and decided to have a go this bank holiday weekend.

Inspired by Juna Biagioni’s lesson, The Custodian (I only did a portrait in her style of drawing; I decided to leave the textured background bit for another project):

I’m really pleased with the result. I used pencil bars for this, but, after having so much fun creating a portrait/face this way, I really want to get a set of hard pastels like Juna uses for this project as it looks like it would allow me greater smudgeability.

Inspired by Tamara Laporte’s lesson A Heart Full of Happy:

More to come when I get time to play…

New Video – Concentric Circle – On Target

My new tutorial video is now up on Youtube and Vimeo (free download).

Just click on the image to be directed to the video links and info.Concentric circles thumbn

It is a short video (only 5 minutes) inspired by Julie Gibbon’s class, Mandala Magic 2017, that I have been following since January. I am a bit behind as I’m only on Stage 5 (May), but I’m taking it at my own pace and really loving it.

I hope you enjoy it.

Thank you for reading and watching.

Much love x


Last Week of Soulful Faces

I just cannot believe that the Soulful Faces challenge is already over. It has gone so quick.

I haven’t been feeling well lately so I’ve found myself falling behind on all my projects. So trying to catch up time!

Here are my last pages for this wonderful and inspiring challenge.
