My fab friend’s new book!

More book news!

 Tam Laporte from Willowing Arts has written her 2nd book!
It’s called ‘Ever After and in it you are  guided to create Fairy Tale-Inspired Mixed-Media Art Projects to Develop Your Personal Artistic Style’ and I get to give away a copy!


Let me tell you a bit more about Tam’s new book in case you haven’t heard about it yet!

Tam says “Let the wisdom and enchantment of timeless fables and fiction help you achieve your creative goals!  Ever After is a rich collection of step-by-step mixed-media art lessons inspired by fairy tales, folk tales, and classic fiction. Ever After will teach you to tell your own unique stories through artmaking so that your wish—to become the artist you’ve always wanted to be—is sure to come true!Based on one of my popular series of online classes, Ever After addresses the most frequently asked question I 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  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.

Guest Teachers Include lessons and tips from Kara Bullock, Lucy Chen Danita Art Andrea Gomoll Annie Hamman Mari.lle Stolp Effy Wild Micki Wilde

I have not made any contributions to the book other than general well-wishing from the other side of the world as Tam created it! But it’s just lovely! Lots of ideas to inspire you and guide you along in building your style. And tonnes of eye candy of course!

The book is now out (yay!) and can be ordered in the following places:
