Autumn

I have been excited about the Lifebook course on Willowing & Friends.  It is a yearlong art class with a lot of great teachers.  Here is where you can find out more information. http://wildprecious.com/blog/2011/09/26/lifebook-news-and-fantabulous-giveaway/
and http://willowing.ning.com/page/life-book
Check it out if you get the chance.


Here is a picture of the leaves just starting to turn color a bit.  The Autumn is usually gorgeous around here and it is just getting started.  I will try to get more pictures up as the color ramps up.


I made a composition book cover for my daughter out of an old pair of jeans and some muslin.  I am still working on the indoor picture taking, but I thought that I would show everyone anyway.  I still have to perfect my light box and lamp set up.  My camera also wants to use the flash indoors all the time.  I haven't figured out how to turn it off yet.




I made the cover using instructions from Lyric Kinard. The tutorial can be found here. http://lyrickinard.blogspot.com/2011/03/tutorial-sketchbook-slipcover.html
Have a great day everyone.
