They all look amazing but I really like the star ornaments. Thanks for an opportunity to win a spot in the class.
I have a set of oil pastels but haven't been very happy with the results when I have used them, so I'd be eager to learn more about them. There are several artists I follow regularly and you are one of them. I am always inspired by your work, your life, and your message. Keep it up girlfriend! She Matters!!
I love the name of your new book and I would sooooo love to win a copy. Thanks for the opportunity.
I'm blown away by the list of talented artists listed for LB 2015. I'd be so honored to win a spot for this year-long course.

Oh goodness... I love all of them. So different than anything I own, and I have a lot of stencils. I guess my fav would French Lily. Such beautiful layouts - very inspiring. Thanks for the opportunity to win.
I do like using matching stamp/stencil sets. Equally as nice is that they can be used individually and stand alone nicely. Thank you Julie for all the inspiration. Love your artful style, have taken several of your classes, and totally love your podcasts.
My fav stencil is swatter. I have to admit, before your post today I probably wouldn't have felt that way. I like the simplicity of the design, yet when used in jelly printing it adds a totally different effect. I love the girl silhouette with the swatter used in the background. Looks like she is standing in front of a large window. Very cool. I would be thrilled to add either of these stencils to my (ever growing) collection.
I can't wait to get my hands on your new paints and stencils. I'd be thrilled to win! Thanks for the opportunity.
My fav part of spring is sitting on the porch with my coffee and art journal in the morning watching birds splash in the birdbath while the butterflies work the colorful spring blooms.
Oops. Hit "post" on my previous post before I mentioned why I want to take this class. One reason, among many, is the opportunity to learn from various artists without having to leave home. Thanks for the chance to win.
I really wanted to take Lifebook 2013 but wasn't able to work it out. I would absolutely love to take the 2014 series. What a lineup of talent! So exciting. Crossing my fingers!! :)
Since discovering your blog and your art, I have been inspired to try different techniques - carving stamps, drawing faces, making my own patterned paper. But knowing how to use color is one thing that I'm often challenged with, and this comes from a gal who LOVES color! I sure would love to win a seat in you class! Wishing you and yours a very blessed Christmas and New Year.

I love art journalling for many reasons - freedom of expression, experimenting with different products and techniques, and knowing there are NO mistakes. If something doesn't turn out to my liking, I simply use it as a foundation and start something new right on top go it. What I love most of all is that art journalling takes me to my "happy place." Thanks, Julie, for a chance to win Journal It. :-)

What an amazing prize. My creative prompt would be to start by just making marks with color creating a background to build on.

I loved the page even before you started today so I wondered what you would do to improve it. OMG... using the smudge of purple paint from the reverse side as inspiration instead of viewing it as a 'mistake' totally worked. Again, I'm loving this week of Donna inspiration!
