courage, brave heart ... Life Book 2015

Here I am continuing on with Life Book 2015 ... yes 2015!! 

This is my interpretation of the Week 4 class with Patti Ballard. I have worked her in my 9 x 12 inch Strathmore Mixed Media Journal.

I can see lots of things 'wrong' with her and I started getting a bit OCD about it! Then, after many reworkings of various areas, concluded she is only in my art journal and isn't going anywhere, so time to leave her be!

I have created my girl on a base of patterned papers and drew and painted her mainly with acrylic paints.

I've used several layers of watercolour paint to add some depth around her and then I've finished off with some rub-ons dotted here and there.

The whole page was then coated with Liquitex Matte Medium. It gives it a lovely rich depth.

P.S. I am also following Life Book 2016, so you may see me producing something from that and hopefully before the year is out!

Thank you for looking.
