Teaching on LIFE BOOK 2016 and a GIVEAWAY!!



Hello everyone!

I have some wonderful & exciting news! I am going to be teaching on Life Book 2016 next year!

I can’t even begin to explain how happy I am to be a part of this lovely course. It’s a wonderful opportunity for artistic and personal growth :).

And even MORE exciting news is that I can give away 1 space on this amazing year long art course! Keep reading if you want to find out more about Life Book 2016 and if you want to find out how you can win a spot! 🙂


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 organised by Tamara Laporte from Willowing Arts.

Tam is joined by 23 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 8700 people in the past!) by clicking HERE.

I haven’t fully developed my class idea yet, but I’m excited to be sharing with you how to find your own voice in your art through personally meaningful symbolism and how to build texture with mediums and pastes, much like you can see in these paintings:

I will also be making a BONUS class on sacred self care and we’ll be making a watercolor as well as a raw food recipe.

Registration opens for LifeBOOK 20166 on October 5th 2015 and the class begins on January 1st 2016.

So if you want to start the year with a fabulous creative BANG and spend 2016 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! 🙂

Through Tam, I understand the value of exploring myself and my feelings, through art and I would love to participate in LB to do exactly that. The last few years have been very difficult and plagued with personal losses, but it’s time to turn a corner and I can’t think of a better way to start a new year than to start it with the journey through LB with other like minded souls.

  10. I've taken the Life Book course for the last 3 years. I think this is a wonderful way to do something for yourself, and have enjoyed every lesson. I'd love to be able to play again next year. I'd REALLY love for my close friends to play with me, though. 🙂

  11. I would be blessed if I have the opportunity to take this class. My knowledge in art has been only from online classes. I live in a city of Honduras where we don´t have art schools. I already tweeted your post and subscribed to your newsletter. Praying to have the chance!

  16. Hey there! ♥ Thank you so much for the opportunity to win a spot in LB 2016!!! I would be honored to win LB2016 for so many reasons, from learning new art skills and techniques, to exposure to new amazing teachers, to participate in a community with creative beings, to breaking out of my shell and being a pat of something for AN ENTIRE YEAR!!!- OMG! To amaze the socks off myself with a gallery of incredible art pieces I made myself taught by the astounding LB teachers (that's how good the teachers all are!), and last but not at all least, the HEALING effects it has. Dealing with agoraphobia and PTSD , LB has given a voice to deep silenced unexpressed emotion I carry. I am learning and expressing more every day. LB has sparked a glittering light at the end of the tunnel for me and to be able to continue this journey with LB no doubt keeps that spark burning! To actually win a spot would mean more than the world! ♥ Good luck to all! Such a fabulous prize!!! ♥

  21. I took part in the very first Lifebook and loved it! Since then I've gone through a separation after over 20 years, went back to school and got a degree, entered into the workforce again after 20 years of raising kids, got divorced and moved to a new town. Now I'm ready to get back to art journaling and would love to be a part of Lifebook once again. Thanks for the opportunity.

  22. Oh my goodness let me count the ways why I would love to win a spot on Lifebook 2016.. So far I have taken 2014 & 2015 and can't even image not taking this amazing course … This course is for everyone, new and experienced… I love that Lisa you are teaching a lesson on finding your own voice, as I am still in the process of doing so….

I have never considered myself an artist but Life Book has shown me that I am. Tam and her guest teachers have such gentle and giving spirits, it's an honor to be able to learn from them. I can't imagine my life without Life Book. Thank you for the opportunity to win a spot for this awesome journey called Life Book.

  34. I shared on Twitter (Linda Robison @ LeftHandedLinda) also subscribed and here I am commenting that I really want to win a spot. Have been trying to have the $ each year and just never made it – would love to learn from these teacher.

  35. After many years spent hiding my dreams, ideas, and desires, I have the chance to make my life mine. A year creating a Life Book that celebrates all the changes and new experiences I will behold is fascinating. Thank you for this opportunity.

It fills my heart with joy every week. There is so much to learn from the teachers. I adore all your works. Thank you for sharing your art with the world. Love and light.

  38. Hi, I would love to win a place in Lifebook because of the fabulous and talented teachers and the community support. I want to grow and learn and gain a bit of confidence. This would be such a blessing!

  41. Shared on Facebook and subscribed to your newsletter. I’m attending these draws, because they are the only way (with scolarships of course) for Life Book to be possible for me, since every cent available goes towards my studies to become an OT. Yet I’d really enjoy in taking part of this year long course.

  42. I would love to win this for all of the above reasons and more. I just know this would be so life expanding in so many ways. Please let it me me but good luck to every one else too!…

  43. Besides giving me a push to get started in mixed media – I would love to see the work of all the teachers. Everything I've seen so far is amazing. I hope some of the talent will rub off on me during the class.
    I've signed up for the newsletter. I posted a notice about the giveaway on FB (from another site)

  44. I want to be seen and heard in 2016!

    I deal with many challenges and illnesses (mental and physical) and have had turmoil in my relationships of late, leading me to feel quite invisible and worthless. While I am working diligently in group and individual therapy, there’s something missing.

    I want to be seen for who I am not WHAT I my labels say. There’s so much more to me than my health concerns. Perhaps this class isn’t a panacea for all that ails me, but I hope it will help me to find myself and what moves me. I want to be able to define myself on paper in a NEW way, one that isn’t in my psychiatrist’s or physician’s reference manual. I seek a definition of myself with pulp and juice that will energize me!

    A monthly class will also give me a monthly goal- something that is essential to someone with recurring major depression. Creativity is an outlet for me and having a monthly forum for that passion would benefit me in so many ways. It would keep me out of bed and interacting in my life. i will be creating art and, when I like what I create, I tend to show others. That gets me interacting with people- something that is very hard for me to do at times.

    thank you for considering me for this class.

  45. I recently stepped down from my career to focus on family and I have also discovered a passion for art, especially mixed media. I would be honored to learn from all of the fabulous teachers involved with Lifebook 2016. Thank you for the opportunity to win a spot!

  53. Shared on Twitter (https://twitter.com/OracleGaia/status/647059715822886916?lang=en) and have signed up to your newletter.
    I'd love to win a seat because since starting to do LB this year, I can't imagine a life with no LB in it – no Monday's looking forward to the new lesson, no more artistic and personal growth, no more LB community, where so many wonderful people come together from all around the world, to share what they most enjoy – art. So yes, a free seat would be a wonderful prize, and I want to thank you for this opportunity.
