If you're new to making fiber postcards and ATC's or if you're looking for some new, unique and fresh ways to make them more interesting then you'll love this book. Gladys gives you creative ways to use unusual items such as wine labels, driftwood, birch bark, sushi wrap and even beer cans to make some wonderfully whimsical and fun postcards, ATC's and wall art pieces. Learn how to make kunin felt beads, easy beading and fabric painting techniques as well as unique ways to finish the edges of your pieces beyond the usual satin stitch. I was especially taken with her technique for creating fused landscape postcards and the painted hibiscus postcard project. Easy to follow directions along with clear photos and diagrams insure that the reader will be able to successfully recreate all the projects in this book.

"Embellishing With Anything" by Gladys Love is a fun book. Love shows you how to make fabric beads, how and where to use commercial beads, how to paint your own fabric, make small landscapes and more on little quilts: artist trading cards, postcards and small wall hangings. She shows how to include aluminum cans, event tickets, feathers, candy wrappers, and ?? (What would you like to add to your small work of art?)

These are fun little items to make, that do not require a lot of time or supplies. Her ideas open your mind to all kinds of creations that you can make. And, if don't have any ideas yet, "Embellishing with Anything" starts you out with some patterns for you.

These ideas are great for trying out some of the techniques in miniature before making something larger. Get your feet wet and jump on in!

I just received this book for Christmas (along with 4 others--I was in heaven!). I read through the beginning of the book and it is full of ideas. I can't wait to get started! I was planning on making a couple of fabric postcards in January, so I am motivated to begin. I highly recommend this book for anyone who wants to enhance their quilting.

It is good to have several good ideas for embellishing in one place at last, especially those that aren't all 'pretty-pretty'. Some parts are probably aimed more at novices, but we can all learn something and it is well worth a look.

My Kendle version is in black and white. Really?
Not good when you are looking for color and texture.
I want my money back..... It's like reading a bad newspaper.

The e-book formatting of this is terrible. I really feel as if I wasted my money since I can't always tell which images go with which set of instructions. Stick with the paper copy if you can.

More About the Author

Hello to all of you. I'm happy that you are interested enough in my book to look me up! Born and raised in Alberta, I have actually lived most of my adult life on Vancouver Island, BC (West Coast Canada), and believe the surroundings have affected my designs as well as creativity! After having tried almost everything you can think of in the area of arts and crafts, I really enjoy working with textile arts. This is my first book and the response has been rewarding (and humbling) so I think there will be more.

I've been involved in arts and craft my entire life. From a grandmother who quilted, a mother who knitted and sewed, and a father who did woodwork and even an uncle who "tats", I have always appreciated hand- made articles for their extra special value. I have a tendency to jump in at the top, and then slide down to my level of ability, allowing for lots of started projects that will get finished "later". I tend to grow from there.

I might have gotten this from my grandmother on my mother's side. She lived in Belgium and I remember a day when a parcel arrived. It had a bunch of wool, two bent needles, a partially finished piece of knitting in it (as well as goodies for my sister and me). My mother pulled it out, washed it and re-started the project. I got an additional chuckle out of this many years later when I tried to teach my mother to do macramé. Several months later I received a parcel with goodies for my children as well as a plastic bag of snaggled macrame cord and a note pinned to it saying "To h*** with this...Love Mum". So, in the end, after much experimentation, I have landed in the textile arts field and am loving every moment of it.

I design, I stitch, I teach, and now I write! Don't hesitate to contact me if you are interested in more, or refer to my blog: fibresoul.blogspot.com
