Week three's assignment in Life Book was to pick two Goddess' that represent you. The light and the dark. We could have taken that anyway we wanted. I struggled with figuring out which ones were "me". Finally after much research, quizzes and thought I decided on Athena and Persephone. I won't bore you with the reasons why I picked them.....
We had to make a drawing and try some cross hatching....Faces, not my strong point......and my husband confirmed that by telling me that he is sure I will get better as the class goes on after he looked at it.
Actually the drawing came out of my head WAY faster than the choice of Goddess'. I added details in the picture that are symbols of each Goddess. The background was fun to do. We were instructed on how to do a shaving cream/ink technique. I'm warning you...not for the person that doesn't like a mess. I, however, do :) If you are interested in learning how to do it just search in YouTube for a shaving cream background technique and you will find many videos.
I will say, that this was not my first attempt. I kept trying new ones until I got the technique to work to my liking. I used India Inks for the color (blue/black/gold).
