Lifebook2016 has started


New year means the beginning of another year with lifebook,  lifebook2016. Tamara Laporte started the lifebook 4 or 5 years ago, and I have participated for the last two years. Now with 2016, this makes my third year. It is a great way to learn different techniques with many different teachers. There is a lesson just about every week or an interview or bonus lesson. There are many different teachers that participate.

Tamara alwayas has a few lessons thrown in there all during the year. She started out with the first one, called the Traveler. This is my version of her lesson. I used watercolor and some acrylics to finish my little travelers up.
