Say Hello to Lucy

Hello and Welcome!

Hope everyone here in the US had a wonderful Labor Day holiday. Ours was busy but we had a great time visiting with our kids and furry grand babies. :)

As I mentioned in my previous blog post I'm sharing something new here on my blog. I discovered Tamara LaPorte's blog - www.willowing.org  - earlier in the spring and fell in love with her whimsical mixed media art. After watching her FREE 4 Week E-Course titled Art, Heart and Healing I was inspired to do something I haven't done in a long time...draw. This is one of Tam's mixed media girls from the class and I named her Lucy. It's a little intimidating sharing your art with others and for the past several months I've kept it a secret. Today I'm choosing to step out and share the girls I've been creating in my art journals. Over the months I branched out and you'll be able to see that progression weekly here on my blog. 

"Inspiration does exist, but it must find you working."

Lucy is an independent spirit whose destined to blaze her own trail. 
Hence the quote below by Dr. Seuss.

I typed up the quote using Adler font, cut the word strips out and used a black gel pen to scribble a border around each one. Liquitex Gloss Gel was lightly brushed on the back and they were glued in place.

Whimsical people/creatures share three traits-

big heads
small bodies
overly emphasized features

and I just love them!

I'll be back later in the week with a Snapguide tutorial featuring a fall cutting file from The Cutting Cafe. Thanks for looking today!

Lisa you are awesome! You should never hide your talents from us! Lucy is adorable. I can't wait to see more of your girls. Love the background you've created for her. That quote from Picasso is great!

Well look at you go, girl! I'm so proud of you. This is going to be FUN seeing the adventures you take with this. I love her whimsical body and you can never go wrong with quoting Dr. Seuss. So glad you had a great visit with the kiddos!
Big hugs to you L1.
