Ali's new book is the book that I've been waiting for. She gives you permission to do things your way, then gives you page after page of inspiration that literally has you bursting at the seams to get busy and create. Notice I didn't use the words "scrap" or "crop". There is nothing wrong with those words, but that's not what this book is all about. The title: "Life Artist" is perfect. Each chapter is another step toward encouraging you to let go of perfection and formulas - - - encouraging you to tell your own story in words and pictures. Her introduction tells about her own journey and how she decided that "life artist" more accurately discribed what it was that she did. The first chapter: "IT IS OK" reminded me of the phrase I often use "It just doesn't matter!" A mantra I started repeating to myself when I started "doing it over until it was RIGHT".
If you're in the mood for something that will free up your personal creativity - then you will love this book.
I absolutely give it my highest endorsement!!!
