From the Bookshelf
I recently came across this one on my shelf. It had been awhile since I'd looked through it. Glad I did, lots of good ideas and solid techniques. Features altered books by a wide variety of artists well known in both the mixed media and the scrapbooking world. One of my favourite people, Lisa Hoffman, is featured with a book she created for her BFF Frani.
I'm pleased that as time as gone by there seems to be a lessening of the great divide between scrapbook and mixed media. We use so many of the same products, techniques and materials and more and more often the line is blurring or becoming non-existent. And this is a good thing. We can all learn from each other. Artists like Tim Holtz and Seth Apter have demonstrated this time after time. This book is a good compilation - whether you consider yourself one or the other (or a bit of both) I think you like it.
