☆ Whimsical Wizard {Life Book 2014}

Week 44 - Whimsical Wizard with Steven Speight


I wasn't sure when I first saw this lesson, how it would turn out.

I don't often paint boys, I mainly do them for clients, and I enjoy painting them, but they don't seem to appear naturally like my girls do...

So this weeks lesson by the amazingly talented Steven Speight, was a magical, whimsical wizard.

And I loved painting my boy!

There was such a wealth of techniques that Steven shared. The clouds were done with a template, as were the back ground details of the city.


And even though my wizards face is a little more feminine than I would have preferred I adore my wizard + am thinking of a few nephews who could do with their own wizards!!

Have a great week.

☆ Inspired Sketches [Friday Art]

 Week 47: November 2014

It has been ages since I have been able to sit down and just sketch to my hearts content.

It feels like forever, but last weekend at the markets, with out Mac + the kids around it was like the flood gates opened. 

Because sometimes I sit down to sketch + I've got nothing. 

Sometimes I have several ugly sketches + may be one good one.

On Sunday it feels like I have 10 new paintings to paint...

Before I share them with you + while you're looking them over maybe you can tell me which one is your favourite, which one you would like to see in paint...









What do you think? Which one would you love to see painted?? I would love to hear your thoughts.

Have a great weekend.

☆ Unique Stocking Stuffers {LilliBean Designs Spotlight}


I was so lucky to meet + talk to some amazing people at the Bathurst Markets.

People we so lovely + had some awesome things to say about my art (some of which made me tear up a little because they were so lovely! I am such a sap!)

Some one mentioned to me how great my calendars, journals + jewellery are for stocking fillers + unique Christmas Gifts.

So I thought before I head off to the next markets (next Saturday for those in the Cowra region) I would share some of the items in store with you.


My calendar is an awesome way to enjoy my art on a daily basis. 

They sold out with in a few days,  but I placed another order which is now listed in the LilliBean Designs Store.

AU$20 each + postage (Free for local delivery, $5 for Australian purchases + $15 every where else.)

Click here for more.




I have a small selection of these hand painted notebooks left - they have proved to be so popular with the market crowd! 

They are blank inside so they can be used for sketching, writing your dreams, poetry, grocery lists or to do lists. There are no limits to the uses of these notebooks.

And with christmas around the corner, unique stocking fillers!

$20 each + postage - click here to see the selection available.



Another popular addition to the LilliBean Designs Store are these small hanging wall plaques.

I have been told that they look awesome on door handles, on fridges + of course the wall.


Only $20 (+ postage) you can see the complete range of plaques + canvases here

Over the coming week I will be adding my new wearable art range (rings, earrings, compact mirrors, necklaces + hair clips.)

To make sure you don't miss out you can favourite my etsy store (which will show you updates in your dash board) or check out the LilliBean Designs Facebook page where I will be posting updates.
