More About the Author

Art has always been my voice since I was a little kid finger painting and drawing. I started off as an art major and thought "what am I going to do with art degree?" so I switched to Elementary Education. Who knew that later in life I would be abble to marry both career goals?

I am a mixed media artist, author, and avid scrapbooker who enjoys all kinds of mediums, documenting stories, taking photographs, and compiling it all together into cohesive art pieces. I like to call my style "Uptown Antique Brie"--a little class, a little vintage, and a lot of good cheese. I am a color junkie, using bold colors and combining colors in ways that surprise people. All kinds of materials show up in my creations: paper, paint, spray inks, stamps, vintage items, fabric, etc. Playing it safe has never been my style so you will find me pushing the envelope and using products in unexpected ways.

I bought Art of Layers by Ronda Palazzari because, well, basically I like to look at other people's craft stuff. A lot. And the more layers of it, the more enthralled I become. As you might tell from the front cover, Ms. Palazzari literally frames her layers in ways that will appeal to scrappers, sewers, journalers, memory artists, and anyone whose spirit soars when multiple media are blended together.

This book is cleverly segmented according to medium: there are separate chapters for paper, fibers, embellishments, and stamps. The final chapter revels in punches, stencils, and liquids, including resists, mists, spray ink, gesso, embossing agents, and matte medium. Brand names are included in the very thorough lists of materials and all the instructions for a given project fit nicely on one set of left/right pages.

The author's personal and crafty vibrancy is evident throughout the book via comments, inspirations, and tips. (She likes Harry Potter, was hugely influenced by her grandmother, and uses the word "plethora" when describing her adoration of embellishments.) As an indication of this artist's warm nature - and the limitlessness of this layered craft - Ms. Palazzari captures the gist of a loved one's ADHD in a strikingly sublime project.

(And it is here at this point that I wanted to describe my favorite project, but it is just not fair to all the other ones!)

To close, I'd like to comment on the wording in the copyright text, since I am a huge advocate for artists' ownership rights, especially in this digital age. This is the first craft book I have purchased that clearly states "It is permissible for the purchaser to create the designs herein and sell them at fairs, bazaars and craft shows." Now, how giving is that?

I consider myself an advanced scrapper. I have been scrapbooking for over 10 years and keep current on the latest techniques. Being a scrapbooker who's seen most techniques out there I find that buying books to learn new things can sometimes be a challenge. I rely a lot on craft book reviews.

Nothing aggravates me more than to buy a book and find that there is nothing new that I learned. Well, that did not happen with this book! It is not only current and loaded with the latest technique trends it is also loaded with step by step photos and stories about her thought process in creating. I learned new techniques, new design ideas, and thoroughly enjoyed reading this book.

It is not limited to only scrapbooking. It includes mixed media techniques,paper crafts, tags, etc...

I follow Ronda's blog regularly and her talent is amazing. She gives you step by step tutorials on the projects she creates for her blog. Check out her blog and you will see what you will see in the book..Amazing talent, great story telling, and an excellent instructor..I can't wait for her next book..I will be the first in line!

Format: Paperback
Art of Layers is pages and pages of pretty scrapbook layouts. Author Ronda Palazzari goes beyond merely adding photos and sentiments to patterned papers, sharing many ideas for adding depth by layering. In addition to the usual embossed cardstock, edged borders, paper flowers, banners and chipboard collages, she also explains techniques for quilting paper cutouts, pleating paper, stitching patterns and words, as well as using textiles and paper appliques to add details, or stamps to create 2D and 3D embellishments.

The result is a range of designs that are full of interesting layers. The colors and textures of the works featured are also lovely. I especially like the butterfly "beauty" piece in the stamping section and the altered sewing trinket box with all that wonderful ephemera and vintage bits and pieces.

The book is well written and illustrated, the instructions clear and Palazzari's personal and friendly personality makes this a pleasant read. It is divided into chapters on paper, fibers, embellishments, stamping and "the art of messy". Mixed media artists and crafters may recognize some of the techniques featured, like using stencils or punches as masks, misting and splattering.

I think Art of Layers is an attractive book for scrapbookers who'd like to add depth to their layouts and experiment with other creative art techniques. But if you read a lot of blogs or dabble in mixed media, many of the layering ideas here will probably not be new to you. In that case, check out the book first. There IS a lot of eye candy.

I randomly took this book out from the local library and it is by far my favorite go-to book when I need some inspiration for scrapbooking. I love that it includes so many diy methods to make your own pages (i.e. stitching papers together, making mini-banners, painting) versus "buy this brand sticker, this brand paper, these letters, etc." It truly treats scrapbooking as an art and gives so many fairly simple ideas that even the novice scrapbooker can understand and do. I just love it!
