Week 3

This is week 3 for both Journal Candy and Lifebook 2013.

This week's class for Lifebook was from Christy Tomlinson.  I did her She has 3 hearts class with her so knew that we were in for collaging in a big way.   Firstly we had to collage and paint a background.

And then make flowers to stick onto the background.   I have made mine flatter than suggested because of being in a journal rather than on a separate peice of paper.

And a closeup

While the various stages of the Lifebook page was drying I also worked on this week's Journal Candy class.  This too was about collage.  But this time to make a small zine.  It's made from one sheet of A4 paper and ends up as a little book 10.5cms tall and 7.5cms wide.
Firstly the cover

And then the inside pages

And this is it folded.

I've really enjoyed myself today.  And I am so pleased that I completed two activities.  I probably need to go and have a lie down now!

See you soon,


  1. Hi Bernice!!! Wow! You were REALLY busy!! I love your flowers; really really love them. I haven't watched Christy's video yet and now I'm excited to do my weekly project! Your book is SO cute!!! Thanks for the wonderful inspiration!!! HuGGs! Debi

  2. I thought about lifebook, but the preliminary video put me off a bit. I'm sure you'll make great things.

  3. Love your work, I started to spray my tissue and got very carried away, anything that could be sprayed has been.
    Must try to concentrate. (Sounds like my school report)

  4. That little 'zine is just lovely - I especially like the way the images are so nicely layered and speak to each other ...

  5. Bernice, I love your use of mixed media and texture! Wonderful!!!
