    Did I expect any less from Claudine?

    I have attended a class by Claudine Hellmuth about two years ago and this book is written in the same style as her workshops. She is clear, honest and practical as an artist and teacher. The rustic, natural, true style is evident throughout this book.

    Well-written and Informative!!

    I have been doing collage for more than 20 years and have at least a dozen books on the subject, yet I still learned several new and exciting techniques from this superbly written how-to book.
