I have some wonderful & exciting news! Tamara Laporte from Willowing Arts has written a 2nd book! It is called Ever After: Create Fairy Tale-Inspired Mixed-Media Art Projects to Develop Your Personal Artistic Style and I get to give away a copy! Yay. I am so excited, and not only because I can give away one Book to one of you, my lovely Readers, but also because I got the Chance to be Part of Tams Book again . . . YAY! I contributed a Project inspired by the Fairytale of The Little Mermaid and I am so excited to be able to share it with you!
Let me tell you a bit more about Tams new book in case you have not heard about it yet! Let the wisdom and enchantment of timeless fables and fiction help you achieve your creative goals! From celebrated mixed-media artist and author of Create Your Life Book Tamara Laporte, Ever After is a rich collection of step-by-step mixed-media art lessons inspired by fairy tales, folk tales, and classic fiction.
Based on one of Tamaras popular series of online classes, Ever After addresses the most frequently asked question she receives from her students: How do I develop my own creative style? In addition to the beautiful art lessons created especially for this book by Tamara and eight other noted mixed-media artists, each chapter offers creative exercises that invite readers to explore stories, their symbolism, and a specific aspect of style development as they work toward and ultimately achieve their artistic goals.
-The Story of You. Explore the experiences, feelings, and ideas that stir your passion, and how to adapt and change motifs and other visual elements to make them your own.
-Inspiration: How to Find It, How to Use It. Examine how to stay open to inspiration, incorporate it into your art practice, and integrate it into your artwork.
-Comfort Zones and Productivity. Learn strategies for working through your fear and dedicating time to your artmaking.
-Dealing with Challenges and Deepening Your Voice. Find guidance for starting a mindfulness practice to help you deal with harsh feedback, and for allowing yourself the joy of continually evolving your story, your message, and your style.
Ever After will teach you to tell your own unique stories through artmaking so that your wish . . . to become the artist you have always wanted to be . . . is sure to come true!
