Life Book 2016!

Hello everyone!
I have some wonderful & exciting news! I am going to be teaching on Life Book 2016 next year! I'm thrilled to be a part of the vibrant community of artists that Tam of Willowing Arts has gathered together. Having friends who have participated in past years, I just know that the magic that this course generates really sifts down into every area of your studio practice. Its going to be packed full of juicy ways to connect with, celebrate and honor yourself through art journaling.



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 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've had so much fun in the process of developing my Life Book class! My lesson will go live in the middle of February 2016, here's the description of what my lesson will be....
“Finding Center with Mandalas”

I use Mandala drawing & painting within the layers of my mixed media paintings as a way of keeping myself loose, while at the same time drawing focus & reflection to different areas and quieting the mind. In this lesson we will journey together through the three layer process that I use to create my layered Mandala paintings, adding delicious textural layers and personal flair, celebrating all of the positive elements that make up the rich tapestry of our lives.
We'll explore centering through the use of mandala drawing, much like you can see in this painting:


I'm also super excited to be offering a Bonus Lesson about painting on unconventional surfaces, exploring pattern painting on gathered leaves, this will air in the autumn of 2016!! Eeeeeep, so much fun!


Registration opens on October 5th 2015 and the class begins on January 1st 2016. There is so much exciting community over in the Facebook group, so much sharing of beautiful work, and really you can jump in at any time throughout the year!
So if you want to start this 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! :)

Life Book sounds amazing! I learned about it earlier this year and this would be my first time participating. This is just the direction I would like my art Journaling to take. I'm pretty new at it and can't wait to learn and explore. Thanks for the chance to win a spot!

BritChickNY said...

Life Book 2016 sounds amazing! I heard about Life Book earlier this year and this would be my first time participating. I'm kind of new to all of this and it's just the direction I would like my art Journaling to take. I can't wait to explore, learn and create. Thanks for the opportunity to win a spot!

Cindy Ceroky said...

I adore and follow your work, I would love to learn from you!!! I am dying to take Lifebook 2016. I have heard such great feedback from years past, and there is such an incredible line up. I know that the weekly prompts and education will just be exactly what I need to really drive my artistic pursuit. Mixed media and what all of these teachers do on a daily basis is what I love, but no formal education in the arts. I work a full time career, with a family at home...this would be the perfect course for me to take, to keep me on the right track which is absolutely a healthy, therapeutic trail for me to take! thank you for this chance to enter!

I've never been able to sign up for this course but I've seen so many wonderful projects from people who did it and I want to take it so very badly. It's been a long year of deaths, births and lots of stress so this would be so wonderful to do this next year. It would give me the artistic boost I need right now.

Lifebook is great, i was in 2014, but I was unable to join for 2015. I really missed it. I live in a rural area and have no artistic friends to share with. Lifebook gives me a since of community.

Barbara Bishop said...

I shared on facebook and pinterest and signed up for your email. I would love to win a spot in Life Book because I lost my Mom to cancer this year and then found out my Dad has cancer. I need inspiration to keep me painting in my time of grief. I am volunteering in Nepal after the earthquakes and there are no art classes here so an online community and inspiration would really have an impact on my creative journey. I love, love your paintings and style!

TangledBlueRose said...

Life Book sounds so wonderful! I just learned about it recently and I would be over the moon to be able to learn along, mixed media makes me so happy :) With your art, I am particularly drawn to your patterns and color, so peaceful. Thanks so much for a chance to win.

LK said...

I'm a mandala nut... but always have a hard time drawing and painting them and having them come out even. Would LOVE LOVE LOVE to get in on LB16, as I've been wanting to get in for years but finances just never allow it.

I've also signed up and shared... :) I LOVE your work!

Barbara Bishop said...

I shared on FB and on pinterest! I would be so blessed to be a part of creative community as I have been trying to find a community of artists to encourage and share our journey. I lost my Mom this year to cancer and I am hoping to heal with a supportive community. I love, love your work but I am on a limited budget as a missionary serving in Nepal.

Kelly D said...

I have thoroughly enjoyed Life Book 2015 and would love to win a spot in Life Book 2016 to continue this amazing art journey. I never thought of myself as being creative or artistic but I have created some beautiful art that I thought I could never do before joining Life Book.

Ildy Karsay said...

Hi,

Thank you for your generous soul for giving a free space for someone lucky! It's really nice of you! warm wishes from Budapest Ildy

Julie said...

Hi Faith! I would love to win a spot in the LB 2016 class. 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. I signed up for your news letter and shared LB 2016 on my FB time line and in the FB public forum. Congratulations on becoming a member of the LB teachers. XOX juliembear@msn.com

Hi Faith,
Love love your work. Website is cool.
I'm from UK and Been on Life Book two years. I have been given friends across the world.
Life Book has been an immense help to my recovery from a nervous breakdown.
I would live to continue next year, but a get a bursary from my local mental heath team and it seems now they are stopping it.
But besides that if I can't do it I would an have been blessed to be on LB and what it has given me.
Lovingly
Jacqui Pexton

Kelly Eckerman said...

I have taken LB 2014 and 2015. This year, however, my husband is out of work, and there is a question of being able to afford it. I would love to win a spot. Art keeps my sanity intact while raising up my 5 teenage daughters. Thanks for considering me.

Serra55 said...

I have been with LB from the beginning in 2012, and I really need it in my life. My husband is out of work and we now have no extra money. A free space would be a very special gift for me! Love mandalas! Thank you.

I have taken life book 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015. I need LIFEBOOK. My husband is out of work. We have no money for art classes. So a spot on LB would help me out tremendously. I love Mandalas! Looking forward to next year's classes.

Dancing Lotus Mama said...

Oh, I'm SO excited for your portion of the course! I definitely need Life Book in my life next year. I'm on a quest to find my heart and soul, and recently left my job to be able to explore my creativity. It was a risk, but a heart-opening one! I think Life Book will be a huge asset in helping me on this journey! Thank you for the opportunity!

OracleGaia said...

I've shared on Google+ and Twitter too, and am subscribed to your newsletter! I'm currently doing LB for the first time this year.

Marjanne said...

Already a few years I’ve been looking at Life Book and hesitated whether I would join or not. Sofar I always decided I was too busy to join a yearlong class. But now I would like to jump in and emerge myself in a year of amazing art and teachers.

Shari said...

Please don't let me be left out of LifeBook 2016 because of the price. I took the LifeBook course the first year that Tam offered it. It was wonderful. I haven't been able to take it since then because I am unemployed. I am also a senior lady with a disability so money is tight for things that empower and enrich me through an art course. Thank goodness people like you offer help for those who need it.
Thank you~Shari

Funki Finds said...

Hello! I am so sorry to hear of your dad's passing even tho we haven't met. I have been through that and it is rough. What you painted is during that period is beautiful!
I HAD a rug very similar to yours in your studio but my puppy chewed a big hole in it. :-( I could never paint over that beauty!
This year was the first time I even knew that there were online classes. I am recently disabled unexpectedly because of my back which I means I make 1/4 of my previous salary. I also have ADHD and having a new lesson each week is great to get me out of bed and try something new. I have learned more than I imagined I ever could at my age. A scholarship would sure help as sometimes I have to "make do" as I cannot purchase all the art supplies but I do use any sales I can find.
I hope each day gets easier for you as time passes and soon you just cry tears of joy of happy memories of your dad and remember you were so lucky you had him for the time you did.
Sincerely
Terri

Thank you for the wonderful opportunity! I've been feeling lost for the past year or so, and I've really been trying to reconnect with myself and my art. I think Life Book, which I've done in the past, will help me do just that. By experiencing and learning from all the amazing artists represented, I hope to find my spirit once more.

Love seeing your art, it's really unique and enthralling too! Would love to get a free class with Life BOOK and take your classes. This coming year I have much to spend my extra money on with the little Ugandan children and hopefully travel there to Africa to introduce an art program. So wont be able to afford it on my own next year which is why I would love to win it. Thanks for the chance, and thanks to Tam for always coming through with awesome teachers and artwork to emulate, and grow from! Sanna.

First of all, this is my first time hearing your name or coming across your page. And thank goodness that I did! I am in looooove!! <3 Your work is so beautiful and it pulls at me.

I am just giddy with excitement, you have become a new favorite artist of mine!

I did share this giveaway page on my twitter account! @klanglais04
I've signed up for your newsletter too!

As for why I want to win a spot for 2016, life hasn't been easy this year. Many different events have happened and it's pulled and stretched me thin. The only thing that keeps me sane is reminding myself that there is beauty in the world and looking at the amazing and creative pieces that come out of Lifebook and my favorite artists. I love that the community consists of kindred souls from all over the world that want to support each other and share their beautiful creations. I love being able to be creative with everyone and seeing how all the different personalities shine. Thank you tons for this opportunity to be a part of it next year!

Hello there! I just signed up for your wonderful Newsletter and will be sharing this on Facebook.

I have been a part of Lifebook for the past two years. I can't even imagine a day without it. I need this - it's my lifeline to the world and to my soul.

Anita Kaiser said...

This year has been the most amazing experience with lifebook and I would love the opportunity to continue on this path of creativity!

I love Life book. Art feeds your soul and makes you a better person and a better parent. It just makes me happy

CJ said...

Congrats on being part of Life Book 2016…this will be my fourth year but I am so hoping I can win a seat this time around. Greatest experience online EVER…

CJ said...

Registered for your newsletter and looking forward to learning more about you and your offerings. LOVE mandala art, I have done a lot of it over the years but I'll be excited to learn ways to incorporate into mixed media art.

I would love to enter the Life Book contest because I want to find my voice. The past 8 years I have focused on being a mom and giving it all to my children. It has been a very powerful and rewarding experience, but in the process, the artist inside me stopped creating. I'm slowly finding myself again through photography, but that person that once created with her hands feels like she's lost somewhere. Through Life Books, I hope to revive the true "me" again and give that artist a new platform to express herself. To find out more about me, you can find me on IG at cggphoto. Thanks for the consideration!!

Hi! My mother told me about Life Book 2016 and we both want to participate! She has recently come in to her own as an artist and is inspiring me to tap into my creativity. I am very comfortable with the "woo-woo/feelings" aspect and less with the creativity aspect and she's more comfortable with the creativity and less with the "woo-woo/feelings" aspect. So, I am entering to win here so I can be gifted with this experience to access this part of me I've been too afraid to explore and look at. Thank you for the opportunity! Brittany

Brooke said...

Winning a spot in LifeBook 2016 would help me on my newly founded journey to rediscovering me. Art saves lives.

Anna said...

Hello Faith. I am enjoying the blog hop and getting to see the
work of artists I may not have seen before. Your work looks
beautiful and I look forward to seeing more.
I was able to do Lifebook in 2013 and 2014. It is a a wonderful
course. I felt I grew both personally and artisticly. The art
community is so supportive and I feel blessed by some of the
online friendships I have made. Like many others I have
regretably had to forfeit expenses such as art classes for
the time being and would love to win a place. Best wishes to all.

Teresa Mahieu said...

Hi, love your blog and artwork. I love finding and meeting new artists on Life Book. Which is exactly why I would love to win a spot on Life Book 2016.

I haven't taken a lifebook class yet and 2016's lineup of teachers sounds amazing. Can't wait. I'm taking the 52 paintings class and it's great! Learning so much.

Denise said...

I have wanted to take Tam's class for several Years and never been able to. Art has become My therapy,it's fun and helps take My mind off of stressful events in life.Art is restful but yet interesting.I have a tendency towards depression and stress and have found art to be one answer.Now later in life I also have a touch of dementia and have heard that art is good for that too.Being tight with money and not being able to shop online.....these are the reasons I would love to win a spot in the class.

Kim Mason said...

I can't wait to join all these amazing people in Lifebook 2016 and it would be wonderful to win a place!

Denise said...

I'm slightly confused I thought I already sent You a note but don't see it.Hope I pressed publish. I signed up for Your newsletter and I linked this post to My sidebar on My blog. Yes, I would love to win a seat in this class.It will be an outlet to much stress and depression I've been under.I have just found out that I have dementia and I know this will be good for Me but We are retired and have a lower income,Oh how I would love to participate.

Leanne said...

LifeBook 2015 was my first LB year and I have loved it so far ... it's gotten me out of my comfort zone and I feel like I am learning to express what's going on with me ... sometimes in really abstract stuff. I'd like to keep that going with LB 2016.... and really cement this as the best habit ever! Now off to sign up for your newsletter and share on FB -- your mandala looks AMAZING!

Jen My Scrap Menagerie said...

I would love to win a seat for Life Book! Several of my friends have taken it before, and just can't stop raving about it! Would love a chance to explore myself in art.

Studio Rose said...

What an amazing opportunity! Mixed-media artists are so generous with their time and talent; I am so proud to be a member of this community. I've signed up for your newsletter and looked at your 52 weeks course - something to definitely think about as well as Life Book! I've never done Life Book, but a friend is going through the 2015 course and can't recommend it highly enough. I would love to join her next year!

Hi! I’m a Lifebook virgin ;-), although I bought Tam’s 2012 version and I’m just finishing my last lessons of that package and I’m having so much more fun of it than I thought before!
Since 3.5 years I have a chronic disease (Lyme disease) and I’m finally starting to have more concentration and energy throughout the day. That’s why I finally can paint again and that gives a day so much more fun! That is why I would love to win a spot in Lifebook 2016 :-)
(p.s. I shared on FB, my name there is Johanna Johanna)

lynnknoone said...

I am newly retired, and want to follow my dream. A spot in LifeBook 2016 would be a wonderful start!

Nickery said...

So exciting to see the lineup of artists, including many who are new to me, yourself included. I would love to be part of LifeBook again next year!

Barb said...

In my retirement after a long career in education, I am beginning to explore the artistic side of life and am loving it. I feel like Grandma Moses and am asking myself, "Why did I wait so long to express myself in this way." I've leared so much in the last few years and want to keep growing in his area. Thanks for giving me the opportunity to win a seat in the course with all these wonderful art teachers.

Nicole Foshee said...

I would be thrilled to win! I love learning new techniques from amazing women!

I experienced LB 2014, my first attempt at painting and LOVED IT. Would love to have an opportunity to explore it again. Thank you.

The Watercolor Heart said...

I was blessed enough to be able to participate in Lifebook 2012 and I enjoyed it immensely. as a Novice artist I learned so much. However, I’ve been unable to sign up since due to finances, art block, or life just not cooperating. I’ve recently started to art journal again and I’d love to win a spot and continue my journey!

Snooze said...

Hi Faith

The Life Book artists and community when you're doing LB must be amazing, but I've realized too, how much there is to learn just from the blog hop. So many people with similar excitement and aspirations, and the many new artists and styles to discover.

PS Shared and signed up to your news letter too.

Your mandala artwork is divine! I would love to learn how to do this art technique. I have shared on Facebook, and also have subscribed to your newletter. thank you for this chance at a spot on Life Book 2016.

Susan said...


I would love to take the Life Book 2016 course and learn all about mandalas and painting on unusual surfaces. Since I am a volunteer art mentor for abused children, I can totally see my kids painting on leaves, rocks, etc. I love to share new techniques with them. I'm on a fixed income so, of course, a scholarship would help a lot!
