The step-by-step tutorials are easy to follow. Discover new techniques for creating assemblages, fantasy-based altered art and other magical projects utilizing items such as glitter, crinoline, crepe paper, found objects and household items.
A sampling of adorable vintage images/clip art is also included at the back of the book for the reader to use in their projects. In addition, a gallery of inspirational works from other artists helps to get the reader's creative juices flowing. I am pleased to say that I am featured as a guest artist in this wonderful book. Even before I was asked to participate, I was a longtime fan of Lisa's whimsical and delightful creations.
Be warned - you may become addicted to the eye candy in this book. Before you get started crafting, grab a cup of tea and spend time pouring through the beautiful images contained within. It's one of those kinds of books that you will enjoy referring to time and time again.
Thank you Lisa
Her instructions are simple to follow; the hints and alternatives are quite helpful; materials are reasonably priced and easy to find.
This is a very user-friendly and inspirational addition to your crafting library
There is a generous section of copyright-free art to get you started, and there is a gallery of ideas from contributing artists.
Even if you've never made an artist trading card before, there is a how-to section for ATCs. By far, my favorite projects are the circus wagon cars and the embellished circus animals. As sort of the namesakes of the book, they are enchanting, imaginative, colorful and delightful. You'll find yourself heading to the craft store for rubber animals in no time. I did.
Disclaimer: Yes! I am one of the featured artists in the Gallery in this book, so of course I would give it a good review! But, it really IS good, and one should buy it just to look at page 109!
