My Review: This is absolute must have for the artistic one out there and even for some of us without a lot of talent. One of the great things about the mixed media is there is not a lot of hard and fast rules. You can let your creativity shine. Another thing I really liked about this book is you don’t have to break the bank to get started. There are so many great ideas for the stuff laying around the house that would ordinarily be tossed but can be up-cycled to beautiful art pieces for your home and gifts for the ones you love. Maybe even earn a little in a gift shop. Now the downside. I am having trouble throwing anything away! Seriously though if you like crafts get this book. It is well done. It gets a 5 star.
