This was another Life Book 2016 lesson with Tam called Roots and Ground, Wings and Light. There was a meditation with this one that was supposed to lead you to grounding in the present, and writing poetry about how you're feeling. But I just went with creating a darker skinned angelical character this time. Happily my next page in my journal was nearly completely blank. Click on any photo to see it larger.
is a recycled book, my neocolors don't blend as well in the background as Tam's seem to, but it gets me using my acrylics, and incorporating more stencils into the background of my pieces which I really enjoy as another layer.
We used modeling paste in this lesson, and mine turned out a bit dirty looking from not cleaning my stencil so I added bronze metallic paint which had a lovely effect, and I included it in her hair as well which was a happy addition
Here she is all finished
