Something new to share!

About 2 weeks ago I started a free workshop at Willowing, which is owned by Tamara Laporte. Tamara is a mixed media artist originally from the Netherlands but now living in the UK. I liked the assignments from this free class soooo much that I signed up for her year long Life Book 2013 experience just last week!!! Lots of workshops the whole year round with lessons from Tamara herself, but also from various other artists from all over the world. To name a few: Christy Tomlinson, Jane Davenport, Dina Wakley, Julie Fei-Fan Balzer, Melody Ross, Monica Zuniga ... 

This is my warming up fairy for Life Book 2013:

It's not completely finished yet because I still have to write down positive thoughts about my art skills in speaking balloons (to replace all the negative thoughts that I have about my art skills!). That's why there's a lot of free space around the fairy. The background and the fairy are mostly made with Neo-color II and some Aqua markers from Letraset. 

And here are some photos of the altered mini album I made for the free class: Art, heart and healing.

Look who wanted to be included in the next picture!!!

A picture of me when I was a toddler. It's a laser photocopy transfer.

 Tamara calls these cute figures Whimsies. 

 A page with the 2 most important men in my life! And of course that cute little lady cat that makes part of my life as well.

 And this is my Invitation Angel of Love

Looks like you're having a lot of fun with the Willowing Classes. That makes me happy.
