It’s been a while again since I’ve updated my progress!

Most progress was in the creative department… Below some pictures!

Main first lesson: Guardian Angel. Also by Tamara Laporte. Guardian Angel of Hope. (Coloured pencil)


Second lesson by Micki Wilde. ‘I want more in 2014’ and ‘Dreamjob’.


Inbetween I made another Guardian. This one represents ‘Dare’

Little project

Since I’ve been following some mixed media people on the web, I had the crazy idea of making a book myself. (As in bookbinding!)

I forgot to take pictures of the beginning, but here are a few:

The process was:

  • Fabric used for curtains: Put gesso on it on both sides
  • Gell medium matte with book pages
  • Painting over it with acrylic paint
  • Using brayer with white acrylics
  • Adding doodles with Golden fluid acrylics
  • Went over it with transparent gesso…


Light Cover


But I was not into the whole white stuff… It seemed a little bit too cold for me!

So then I tried to colour it up with some blue and red:

Fail and fail 🙂

I had my hands in my hair, but then I totally found the solution for this problem:

Grungy cover

That’s more like it!

And with this result I am sooo pleased!
(used chalk pastel water soluble crayons with a slightly wet brush)

Afterwards, I sprayed the cover with fixative.

To be honest, I really enjoyed it! And I’m already busy with another book that is going to be my planner for the first half year of 2014… (More on that later!)
