Today I have another Life Book page to share with you. This was a lesson by Life Book’s founder Tamara Laporte, and it was a lot of fun! The page is in a slightly different format than usually, rather than working a normal A4 sketchbook page we made an accordion page (which is just a page that folds out in the style of an accordion):
The idea was to create a layered backgrounds and draw a series of whimsical birds before adding some grounding words (these could be song lyrics, poetry, our own thoughts, a famous quote… anything). I used some lyrics from this song.
Here are the close-ups of my little birds:
I really enjoyed creating this spread. The background had so many layers and yet was so easy to work on, and I liked having smaller boxes to fill (sometimes large pages can be a bit intimidating). I love the way that the text and borders have been added, but there is one thing I don’t like too much… the birds. I just think they all look a bit… stoned. I think I might experiment with birds a bit more until I get them ‘right’.
Have a great weekend,
