Hello wonderful creative friend!

Welcome to the 5 day replay of the very first Life Book Creativity & Wellbeing Summit! On this Summit I have interviewed a range of Life Book 2019 artist teachers and chatted about creativity & wellbeing amongst other things! Not only that, each teacher has prepared an inspiring Summit Activity especially for you! These activities are intended to get your creative juices flowing and will put you in touch with the amazing healing power of your own creativity!

I’m really excited to be running this summit for the very first time. I have LOVED chatting to all the Life Book 2019 teachers and look forward to sharing all the interviews and activities with you!

If you haven’t yet, please join the Life Book Summit Facebook Group and share your thoughts, feelings and any art work you created in response to the activities! We can’t wait to connect with you and see your work! :)

The 5 day replay runs from Friday 7th December to Tuesday 11th December! All content will -poof- go away on 11th December midnight GMT! Unless! … you register for Life Book 2019! Yay!

For those of you who are not in the Facebook group or missed the post, you can download a general suggested supply list that covers some of the most commonly used mixed media supplies from this link – however, you do not need all these supplies necessarily.

We encourage people as much as possible to ‘make-do’ with what they have already available and buy some supplies here and there, but overall you can replace and substitute what the teachers use with what you already have. If you wanted to buy the bare essentials, I would buy:

• a pad of watercolour paper 140lbs (300gsm) 12 x 9″ hotpressed
• a graphite pencil to draw with + eraser
• some neocolor II crayons, colours: 1. salmon 2. magenta 3. teal 4. orangish yellow (you can buy these loose)
• a basic beginner/ student set of acrylics + some skin tone acrylics
• A small watercolour set of vibrant colours (I love Jane Davenport watercolour sets)
• 2 or 3 Tombow markers (or ecoline markers) in your favourite colours
• 1 white posca pen/ 1 black posca pen (fine nibs) £6
• some gel medium (impasto gel)
• some collage papers

Many people who come on our courses like to look at the lesson first and then see if they want to buy any of supplies used then. In any case, you now have some information regarding supplies available! :0)
