About the Author
Top customer reviews
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?
