I love mixed media art but I am not a skilled artist. This book is perfect for the budding artist who likes to just have fun. The book gives detailed directions/instructions with the assumption that the reader knows nothing. And then the author takes the reader/artist through all the steps necessary to make a piece of art to be proud of.
The ideas in this book go far beyond the basic doodle. I love Traci's instant-gratification techniques and there is no shortage of eye candy in this book if you're looking for a quick art fix.
Idk it almost seems like a book about smashbooking. Shoul i get? Sample isnt very helpful.
