Life Book Update on Giveaway! Are you the ONE????

Hello everyone!   

I think this post deserves a drum roll, please!    A couple weeks ago, I made THIS big announcement:

I have some wonderful &  exciting news! I am going to be teaching on Life Book 2017 !!!  This will be my second time teaching—I was a part of the first Life Book inception several years ago and I am sooooo thrilled to be back again in 2017!

And of course I announced that I could do a giveaway for one spot for  Life Book 2017  .

Well today is the day that I'm going to announce the winner....hold tight!   If you haven't heard about Life Book---here's a little info on this HUGE year long class!

First let me tell you a bit more about Life Book in case you haven't heard about it yet!
“Life Book, a celebration and honouring of YOU” is a year-long mixed media art class organized by Tamara Laporte from Willowing Arts.

Tam is joined by 22 incredible art teachers who are all gearing up to share their mixed media techniques, tips and tricks with YOU! Themed around self-development and healing, you’ll be creating several loose mixed media art journal pages per month which by the end of the year you will bind into a glorious journal (a Life Book)! You will have a wonderful keepsake that you can treasure for the rest of your life!

You can find out a lot more about this wildly popular course (it has been joined by over 12500+ people in the past!) by clicking HERE.

I haven't fully developed my class idea yet, but to get a better idea on what some of my art journal pages/sketches look like for those of you who are new to my art, take a look at these examples here or take a peek at my Etsy Shop:

(BTW...Here are links to some of my Favorite Journals NOTE-Life Book  projects typically are created on LOOSE papers you bind into your own journal with a specific size water color or mixed paper  at the end of the year. But if you want to just go ahead and put all of your work in one pre-made journal, these would be my recommendations).

   Dylusions Journal Large

Dylusions Journal Square

Strathmore Visual Journal (mixed media)

Registration opens on October 3rd 2016 and the class begins on January 1st 2017.
So if you want to start the year with a fabulous creative BANG and spend 2017 with a wonderful creative community of like-minded souls, learning more about art and how to be kinder and more loving towards yourself, be sure to join once registration opens! :) Keep this page bookmarked so that you can sign up the moment it goes on sale! :)

Now then, onto the winning entry....the lucky ducky is:

I would love to win and participate in the 2017 Lifebook because I know how good it is, as I participated in 2014 and learned so much! It's great to have access to so many talented artists that I otherwise would not.
Caroline,  email me at and I will send your info on to Tam for the spot in the class!!

Big  hugs and congratulations, Caroline! I know you will enjoy the course and use the opportunity to keep infusing creativity into your life as it was meant to be!  xoxo
