My Lifebook Journey

Wow, its been a while huh? The last few months have blown by so quickly, but I'm back at it!
We have a bit to catch up on :)
Back in October I started searching the Internet for a local art retreat. I was longing for a deeper connection in the art world and desperate to learn more about mixed media. While web searching I stumbled upon an AMAZING artist, Tamara LaPorte and her website Willowing Arts. On her website I learned about a year long mixed media e-course called LIFEBOOK. It is taught by 23 different teachers with a lesson or bonus released each week! There is so much I want to say about Tamara and Lifebook, but this post would be entirely too long! She is amazing and the course has already changed me.... This course it not only about amazing art, but also about healing. You don't have to participate in the healing lessons if you don't want to, its just there as an added bonus. You can learn more about it here. Plus, its super affordable and you still have time to sign up!! 
Anyway, back to the story :)
I was planning on asking hubby to purchase it for me as a Christmas gift, but before I even had a chance to ask him I received an email update from one of the blogs that I follow.....CREATIVITY UNLEASHED by Traci Bautista (another amazing artist). She happens to also be one of the teachers for LIFEBOOK 2014. She was hosting a giveaway for the upcoming Lifebook 2014! So obviously I entered and I bet you will never guess?!?!?!?! I WON! I was so beyond excited and grateful for this opportunity! I was in the car when I found out that I had won the giveaway, don't worry hubby was driving! However I did scare the crap out of him with my gasping and squealing! LOL
So fast forward to now....staying true to myself....I am already behind on the lessons! 
Lessons started January 1st, I'm not too far behind so there is hope! So far the journey has been amazing and its not even February yet! I cant imagine what this year has in store for me...
So here is my first finished lesson from week one. It was just a warm up to get your creative juices flowing. It was fun to just sit a play while following directions given by someone else! Following along with Tam took away the dreaded blank page syndrome. It was so relaxing to just sit and play along....


Here is a sneak peek at what is coming up next. This lesson is all about drawing your inner artist guardian for 2014. My drawing is complete, I just have to add some paint! 

I will be back soon with my finished guardian and many more completed lessons from Lifebook 2014! 
It is going to be an amazing creative year!
Big Gentle Hugs!
