Inspired by artist Tamara Laporte's popular online art classes (, Create Your Life Book presents 18 step-by-step mixed-media drawing and painting projects that encourage self-fulfillment through the creative process. Tamara's kind, non-judgmental voice guides your way.

What is holding you back? Where do you want to go? Let go of the past! Use these expressive exercises to help you recognize your personal challenges and other obstacles, then work through them. Let go of limiting beliefs, find courage, feel gratitude, heal pain, and develop self-love as you playfully create.

Each themed chapter presents four to five two-part projects. First, you will explore a common issue that hampers creativity and/or positive self-worth. The second portion is a step-by-step mixed-media art project designed to help you work through that issue. Just a few of the explorations:
Let go of what no longer serves you by taking stock of what's holding you back, then create a zentangle butterfly to symbolize you flying away from those limiting things. Embrace and love your inner quirky bird by taking an inventory of your quirky traits, then create a bird that celebrates them. Heal old wounds by writing a letter to yourself as a child, then create a house to keep your inner child safe.
Adding rich variety to the messages and art inspiration, some of the project outlines have been contributed by Tamara's guest teachers: Roxanne Coble, Andrea Gomoll, Alena Hennessy, Mystele Kirkeeng, Ivy Newport, and Effy Wild, each of whom are noted mixed-media artists in their own right. The final chapter presents a simple binding method for creating a keepsake book of your Life Book projects.

Steeped in inspirational images and uplifting affirmations, Create Your Life Book can help you achieve both personal and creative growth.

This is a beautiful book with vibrant color and whimsical projects. The stepped-out photographs make for clear, easy-to-follow instructions. It is equal parts self-help and art book. I applaud Tamara for creating such a wonderful book, through it's absolutely no surprise. This is a must-have for every mixed-media artist's bookshelf. * Somerset Studio *
