Low on poetry, but helpful tips
on March 5, 2012
I love using poetry in my mixed media projects, so I was really hoping to see some examples of that in this book. Unfortunately, there wasn't any. There really was no direction on how to incorporate poetry and words into mixed media pictures. There was quite a few ideas, which I appreciated, but I felt the name was a bit misleading.
Instead, there was "poetry" in the form of tips about basically how to improve your life and do nice things with your art and art supplies. Some suggestions were donating old craft books or writing a letter to someone, for example. Good ideas, but not exactly what the title of this book suggests.
Still, the book offers some good ideas for mixed media projects, and if you're looking for just that you'll enjoy it.
