Life Book 2018 and Exciting News

I’ve been absolutely bursting to tell you this fabulous news! I’ve been invited to teach to teach on Lifebook 2018 next year. I can’t believe it, I’m so excited, it’s a dream come true!

And what’s more, I can give away 1 space on this amazing year long on line art course, so keep reading to find out more about Life Book 2018 and how to win a spot!

Those of you who know me well probably know about Life Book already, since I’ve been raving on about it for several years now, as a student participant! But if you haven’t heard about Life Book, well, let me tell you a bit more about it!

What is Life Book?

“L i f e  B o o k, a celebration and honouring of YOU!” is a year long mixed media art class organised by the wonderful  Tamara Laporte from Willowing Arts.

Along with Tam there are another 23 incredible art teachers who are all getting ready to share their mixed media techniques and creative processes with YOU. And this year, Life Book promises to be even better; another 12 fantastic artists and wellness guides will introduce additional personal development practices and other forms of art, like sculpting, photography and writing! Yours truly will be introducing clay doll making!

Life Book is themed around self-development and healing, making it all the more special.  You will be guided and inspired to create several loose mixed media art journal pages every month, and by the end of the year you will bind them together and end up with a beautiful journal, a Life Book! YOUR LIFE BOOK! You will have a wonderful keepsake of your creative journey that you will treasure for the rest of your life!

You will also be introduced to yoga, aromatherapy, dance and angel energy and other wellness exercises to enrich your personal development journey throughout the year! And the other art forms that will be introduced this year will expand your art making and creative skills. It’s going to be so much fun!

You can find out a lot more about this hugely popular course (it has been joined by over 16,500+ people in the past) by clicking HERE.

I absolutely love making my art dolls and I am so excited and honoured to be sharing my doll making process on Life Book. I’ll be showing you all the steps from sculpting, to preparing for decoration and then decorating with acrylic paints, water soluble crayons and pencils, paint pens and … a touch of magic.

Together we’ll turn a lump of clay into an adorable, delightful, little friend!

Have I mentioned that I’m super excited?!

    August 30, 2017 at 6:12 pm
  • I have done lifebook for the last three years. It’s a fantastic course particularly for beginners in art journaling. This year I felt that I had out grown the course but Tam must have read my thoughts as she has changed it to include other mediums such as clay! I am so excited as I am a sculptor at heart and think there is a lot to be said for working with clay. I pour everything into a piece I am working on. The kneading of the clay and forming it with your hands is so therapeutic Watching a sculpture develop from concept to a finished masterpiece is one of the most rewarding experiences. I am so happy to finally see Art Dolls as a Lifebook lesson. Many people will now be able to experience the joys of a sculptor.

    Firstly I would like to say how much I love your work. The dolls are so amazing. Glad that I came accross your site. Secondly, this would be such a great opportunity to win a space. I’ve been dealing with 9 years of struggling both health and financial wise. My family has endured a very long path of pain and I believe some healing is in dire need. I know there are a lot of people struggling financially and physically, so I am just another soul searching for some kind of relief. Hoping and praying that there is someone out there whom will be willing to give me an opportunity to better myself and my life. Sending lots of love to everyone. May you have a blessed day.

    Shared on Google+ and signed up for Love Art and Beyond. I would love to win a chance to participate in Life Book 2018. I’ve been looking for something to fill my time that is creative and inspiring and this looks like this is thing. Thanks! 🙂

    I need a ‘life break’! I really cannot afford to buy art lessons at my age (im always saving up for my yearly property taxes =) ) and would love to do even a portion of lifebook 20 any year! I am fascinated by the artwork of others, how they view the world and their part in it. Try as i might i cannot find where i fit. I wonder from here to there, always loving my art, crochet, tatting, bobbin lace making, drawing, painting, journaling, but never finding me. I see a glimpse now and then. I always come back to painting. Being self taught and winging it most of my life, i would love to watch real artistry at work. Thank you for this opportunity to invest in self

    I’m very exited!!! That sounds all fabulous!!! I want to be part of the LifeBook2018! The last years were very hard for me, I had my 3rd depressive episode and my father passed away this March after a long alcoholic disaster. Now it’s my turn and I want to do more for myself, be myself for the first time in my life. I think, LifeBook2018 would help me there to find my creative self!!! Sorry for my bad english, i’m from Germany….

      I would be so honoured to win a spot in Life Book 2018 in honour of my granddaughter Shayna who we lost at the age of 20 in 2014 to a rare disease that attacks the immune system. A healthy young lady was struck down and gone in 2 months. Shayna was an out door enthusiast who loved water colour painting. I just recently was given her art supplies. I would love to do this Life Book course in memory of her. It would be so very healing for me.

  • I first joined Life Book in 2017 and have loved every minute of it. I am learning new techniques and skills and it has kept me sane through a very rough period in my life. I would love to continue my journey with Life Book in 2018. Thank you to all the artists and especially Tam for giving us this opportunity.

    I would love to win a seat for next year’s LifeBook because I am learning much more than I thought I would from this year’s LifeBook.

  • I would love a spot to inspired and for some great self care.

  • I’ve tried signing up but it says that my e-mail adress is invalid. 🙁 I tried both of them that I use. Anyway, my e-mail is azura_emi@hotmail.com I hope it’s all right for me to try to win a spot? I’d love the get the news letter never the less. 🙂

    I’d love to be a part of LB 2018 because it’s changed my life in so many ways. I don’t think I could live without Life Book, some days it’s what makes me get out of bed in the morning. I struggle with chronic pain so art means a lot to me. I’ve grown a lot as an artist and also as a human thanks to Life Boo, life would feel really empty without it.. And the community is just amazing to be a part of too, so much love and compassion! <3 I'd really love to keep on learning and evolving. 🙂

    Wow Clay dolls. I really love to get them…

  • Thanks for a chance to win a spot in LifeBook 2018. Clay? How exciting! I have no experience with it and I love learning new things 🙂

    Hi! I´ve never done sculptures! This would be great to try! I´m the first time this year in LB… it´s gorgeous to meet several teachers and learn different kinds of making art! I´m a very beginner, so I would like to stay another year in LB! I´m “bysusuko” in Instagram and asked to stalk you, and shared there, too!

    A nice idea making dolls, I love the different lesson of lifebook. The dolls are happy and beautiful.

  • Have subscribed and shared. I have clay! I would love to learn how to use it to better potential.
    Lifebook would be an amazing experience for me. My budget does not allow me to splurge on it for myself but I follow and admire the creativity of many of the talented teachers. I need some structure and deadlines to help me past my fear of taking chances and using my own creative nature.. I am looking forward to the sense of community and support.

    I want to join Life Book 2018 as I’m still working on my personal style and I absolutely love receiving weekly inspirations to create art! Also, it would make the best birthday present! Thanks for the chance! <3<3<3

    I would love to win a place in Lifebook 2018. I need my art time more than ever this coming year. Since I did the first ever lifebook things have changed a lot. Our younger son has been diagnosed with 2 chronic conditions which change his life dramatically, and is off to do his masters degree which means I give lots of long distance emotional support, so I need that creative outlet again.

    I love making art and lifebook looks too good to miss. There is no way I want to miss out on making a doll 🙂

    Hi Sophie. Thanks for this opportunity. I’d like to win a spot !! Since my baby is an angel, I feel that art and creativity is the best way to express myself and enjoy life. So I d like to try Lifebook course and the awesome instructors

    Your dolls are the sweetest! I am going through several life transitions now and would love to be among a caring, creative community.

    I would love a spot on Life Book 2018 so that I may explore other aspects of my creativity such as using clay to make a doll. I like to get lost in the moment and I can’t think of a better way than by participating in a year long event such as Life Book 2018.

    I would love to win a place on next year’s life book because I find art journalling to be the most effective way to allow myself ‘ to be’. I work from home while looking after my disabled daughter and it can be hard going not interacting much with anyone else – lifebook is a weekly reminder to art and gives me direction and inspiration

    I would love a spot on Life BOOK 2018 as the new lineup looks amazing and the teachers are totally awesome!! 🙂

      What I like most about Life Book it’s to know artists that I haven’t seen before. Another year of discoveries !
