Week 2 : Mixed Media Draping (done)

So here is my finished homework of I HEART DRAWING by Jane Davenport …..


This is my first attempt at these ‘ladies’…. and I must say they are BOOTYLICIOUS!! hahaha….. going to work on them being more in proportion….


oops, sorry the photo is a bit blurry…


I purposely didn’t add a lot of facial features, and I mostly used watercolour paints.. I haven’t used them since Carla Sonheim’s Class, and I really loved the effect for this class.

Overall I am pretty happy…. I still need to work on the shading too….

Really was fun though….. although I am not a ‘fashionista’ by any means!!!

Ning is down for maintenance tonight….

and finally had the Mojo and time to finally start on ‘i Heart Drawing’ by Jane Davenport tonight … aaagggh!!!

but all was not lost …….….. I decided to finally learn how to use my Zutter Bind-It-All that has been in my cupboard almost 2 yrs…. ooops… LOL… I purchased Goddess Leonie’s 2012 Workbook and Calendar…. and decided to bind the Calendar and the Workbook I am going to paste in an Art Journal…….

I’m not good with instruction books and the DVD tutorial for the Bind-It-All didn’t have close-ups …

hehehe I managed to stuff up the edge of my front and back covers (which I had laminated!)….BUT being the clever chick I am, I cut the offending edge mess off and redid the holes and made the inner pages smaller…..

and here it is:


 I think I will do some more binding…. looks really professional!

As I write this blog post I checked to see if the sites are back up…WOOHOO…. looks like I can make a start at i HEART Drawing!!…. or maybe more binding?????? LOL
