  8. I am a wildlife artist in Kenya. I love to create and I would really like to develope my own whimsical style with the guidance of so many talented artists.

  9. Thank you for this opportunity! I’ve shared this and signed up for your newsletter (and read some of your other blog posts!). I’d love to be part of Ever After as I’m a mama working on getting some mama time to rejuvenate and I’m finding art is the best mode for me. I am feeling so inspired by Tam’s work and all the blogs I’m visiting through this blog hop and would love to learn some of the beautiful techniques you use in your artwork. 🙂

  10. This course looks like it’s going to be great and I’m so happy you’ll be a part of it! I’m working to find my style and it’s always so informative to hear from other artists. Thanks for the chance to win a spot!

  11. I love fairy tales and the artists that will be teaching. I’m also very interested in the style development course. It would be a dream to join!

  12. I would absolutely love to win a spot on the Ever After 2017 class, I would like to have something that is just for. Myself and feel like a creative outlet is just the thing, I live all the different styles that Tamara has pulled. Together toake this a fun filled 4mnth class. Thankyou for the opportunity xx

  13. I am a little girl believing in fairy tales captured in an adult body! I love fairy tales. I have 3 beautiful grand daughters and I read to them all the time. I also love your style and would love to win a spot. Our currency was cut to junk not so long ago so I simply can not afford the exchange rate….. that is the only reason why I have not signed up yet 🙂 Thank you for the opportunity.

  14. Amazing art work! I really loved being a part of Ever After last year and look forward to it this year as well.

  17. I would love to win a spot in this fun course! All of the instructors look to be so much fun. I am and 42 year old mom of 3 (2 special needs). I stayed busy raising them and have always believed I had no artistic talent, then the last couple months ago I started seeing these art journals and wanted to try but felt unable due to my lack of “talent”. Then I started thinking that “Hey… I don’t know if I am artistic I have never really been exposed to art or had a class!” So here I am looking and dedicated to learning a new skill/talent! 🙂

  18. Love your Alice and Cheshire Cat! Thanks for offering the free ticket to this – it looks like it’s going to be amazing!

  67. I never thought I would be the fairy tale type or whimsical type artist, now all I want to do is gather as many different methods and styles so I can find my own style.

Can’t wait to see who wins.
