When I heard that Misty was including so many topics under one cover I was concerned that her book might look unfocused but boy was that not the case. She has gone into depth in the areas of painting, journaling, book making, mixed media collage and more; honestly, it is hard to put into words how stunning and comprehensive this book is. It is not just a class in a book it is weeks of classes in one book. This is a beautiful, soulful, deeply inspiring book and I can't recommend it enough.

I see many of the review are written by Misty Mawn fans. I can see why many would be fans of her work. But doing great work does not necessarily make for a great teacher, or ability to write a great book on mixed-media "workshops".

Some of the book I like, but was not up to the quality of Misy Mawn's work, and I see nothing at all new.

Content consists of:
-The first 40 page on how to draw and/or paint. You cannot teach drawing, light and shadow, how to mix "skin tone" colors in only 40 pages. There are reasons that whole books, college majors, etc are devoted to this SKILL...hardly a "technique" IMO. And for many who are not comfortable drawing, this is big drawback (those who are, dont need this big section). I truly wished she HAD glossed over HOW to draw (which she really is not qualified to teach, IMO - got my degree in illustration, so that may color my view), and talked more about how to incorporate your drawings and paintings into mixed media projects: inspire me to use pencil and water color and paints together. What do the mediums do when blended...inspire me to try colored pencils that become water color paint when mixed with wet medium, etc. WHAT DO THE MEDIUM DO? How can I manipuate them seems more appropriate and not intimate people depending on their varying skills with drawing.
-I really dong want to learn how to make a coil clay pot (definitley not mixing media here), or how to sculpt a doll out of paper clay. I want to know how to MIX these with other media (that IS the title of the book)
-An origami section on how to fold a happiness crane, under origami. That is all she diagrams how to do, and shows photos of other, simple (MUCH more original and fun) folded things. FOUR pages on how to fold a Crane...yikes. Again...

Are you kidding me...i was expecting the best of the best...and this is IT! Whether a novice or seasoned artist-whether or not that you've taken a class with MISTY MAWN, this is a TREASURE! It is JUST as the title touts, a workshop. But then it is MORE MORE! Techniques yes, but how about digging down deep and finding your OWN specialties...what your heart and soul holds, then how to put it on paper, not be afraid, and be encouraged constantly by this professional. She will answer questions personally and speak with her heart and paint brush to you. This book covers so many different aspirations in art, that we've been lucky to pay the price. It is INVALUABLE, ARTISTIC (i"ve even painted on the sides of the book pages, which lend themselves to tactile purposes :) SOULFUL, HELPFUL! I've already done one painting, feeling Misty's words behind me, having nothing but fun and freedom! Could i go on...yes...!!!!

Misty's teachings are rich; a tapestry of classical woven with heart and daring. I am enjoying this book mostly for its gorgeous photos and writing. It just feels good to have. It also presents some mediums I have never heard of, and I am totally inspired and can't wait to experiment. Chalk full of goodness, an excellent studio companion. Big hurray for beauty + inspiration.

I have been a fan of Misty's art for 4 years and have had the privilege of taking a workshop in person as well as online and when I heard she was doing a book I just had to have it. If there is one word I had to use to describe Misty it would be "giving". In all of her teaching ventures whether in person, online or in book format she is giving. She gives all of herself to guide and encourage you to be the best you can be. The one thing I love about this book is that it's all Misty! Her exercises, gentle prompts and creative ideas encourage you to unfurl into your own beautiful artistic self.

WOW. After taking Misty's online class I knew I wanted MORE, MORE, MORE!! This wonderful book gives me that! As I expected, it's beautiful, soulful, and well done in all ways! It's so amazing to have Misty at my finger tips and in my studio by my side at all times! Unfurling answers all those little questions that you aren't sure of about supplies, or that you've forgotten. Misty's techniques are so easy to understand and blend into your own work. This is truly one of the most beautiful and inspiring art book I've seen or owned. It goes to the very top of my list. I'm sure I'll wear out these lovely pages as I intend to spend a huge amount of time working from this book. Thank you so much Misty, your generosity and talent are overwhelming!! My next dream is to take a class in person!

This is quite possibly one of the most beautiful books I own. It is filled with gorgeous art work, beautiful poetry and quotes, and is written from the heART and soul. I love the matte pages. This book is her true voice, and it reads very much like her blog, mistymawn.typepad.com! I believe she even did all of the photography for the book which is why it has her very own unique style! The lessons are clear and she encourages you along the way....to throw out your inner critic and just create! LOVE this book!
