Hello beaming creative!
Tamara Laporte from Willowing Arts has written a book! It’s called ‘Create Your Life Book: Mixed-Media Art Projects for Expanding Creativity and Encouraging Personal Growth’ and I get to give away a copy! Let me tell you a bit more about Tam’s new book in case you haven’t heard about it yet!
Based on much-loved mixed-media artist Tamara Laporte’s popular, multi-year series of online classes, Create Your Life Book offers mixed-media drawing and painting projects that can raise your awareness of and help you work through personal challenges and other obstacles to creating art and achieving self-fulfilment. Each themed chapter presents 4 or 5 two-part projects: The first part of each project explores a common issue that hampers creativity and/or positive self-worth, and includes a worksheet or list of questions to be answered; the second part is a step-by-step mixed-media art project that provides a way for artists at all skill levels to contemplate and work through that issue. Also included are projects contributed by some of Tamara’s Life Book guest teachers along with myself–Roxanne Coble, Andrea Gomoll, Mystele Kirkeeng, Ivy Newport, and Effy Wild–who are noted mixed-media artists in their own right.
The final chapter presents a simple binding method for creating a keepsake book of your Life Book projects. I am very honored to be a part of this book as I see it a source of creative expression and healing that is accessible to all levels of experience in art-making.
