Guess what? Tamara Laporte from Willowing Arts has written a book called 'Create Your Life Book: Mixed-Media Art Projects for Expanding Creativity and Encouraging Personal Growth', and I get to gift someone a copy! Woot!
Create Your Life Book is based on the well received online course "Life Book" that Tam began in 2012. Her book offers mixed-media drawing and painting projects that can help raise your awareness of your creative voice and, as making art often does, help you see your life more clearly. Here's a bit more about her new book:
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--Roxanne Coble, Andrea Gomoll, Alena Hennessy, Mystele Kirkeeng, Ivy Newport, and Effy Wild--who are noted mixed-media artists in their own right. Along the way, Tamara shares inspirational photos and uplifting and encouraging affirmations. The final chapter presents chapter presents a simple binding method for creating a keepsake book of your Life Book projects.
It's officially published in January 2018, although many sites are now showing the publishing date as earlier in December 2017! You can pre-order from these places:
