Art to Adore: Lifebook 2016 Students

Hi there!

Happy Thursday! It’s always a fun day for me because it’s Studio Day with my art buddy, Robin Laws. We are going to be watching Katie Kendrick videos from her new online class and painting away!

So far, 2016 has been a whirlwind with many new classes that I am both taking and teaching for. One of which is Lifebook. This amazing class has over 2900 students all actively creating beautiful work. You should see my Facebook feed! While it is hard to keep up with, I am absolutely in love with all the art that flows through it from such talented students.

My bonus lesson for Lifebook aired on Jan. 4th and it was called “Patch it up, Make it Shine”. The thought behind the tutorial was to write down limiting or negative beliefs and thoughts that we want to leave behind in 2015 and then collage and paint over these words with gorgeous metallics, powerful intentions and more illuminated imagery to light our path into 2016. I have been absolutely blown away by the pieces that have come from this project.

I have gathered a few of the ones that truly touched me with their beauty….enjoy….

    These are beautiful! Thank you for sharing your gift with us on Life Book 2016. I also want to personally thank As the winner of the registration to this amazing adventure I received through your site. I am enjoying this journey and I can feel a shift in my soul… My word for the year is Courage, my need to be more fearless in life and to let go. My mantra I find myself whispering to my heart is Be Brave. It’s working, I am feeling braver with each session.
    Your session surprisingly was challenging for me. I do a lot of ‘soul collaging’ personally but I haven’t played with it much in the altered sense. I’m inspired to do more of this type of collage in the future. I love seeing examples of others work, it inspires me and teaches me at the same time.
    Peace, love & light – Lynda Simmons
