I like the layout but the directions are in need of fleshing out. I planned to do the "Speech Bubbles" project with my granddaughters this weekend but after reading the directions I was not clear on how to adhere the bubbles to the canvas. I thought, perhaps I was misreading something in the directions so I asked two other people to read the directions and they were as bewildered as I. I later asked my husband and he thought that after the bubbles were cut I was supposed to paint the back side of the bubbles white and then put the painted side (while wet) of the bubbles onto the black cavnvas; then write on the bubbles. He said that was the only way the bubbles would adhere to the canvas without glue; as well as the only way the black paint would not bleed through. I read the directions again and while the instruction said nothing close to what my husband said; his was the only exlplanation that made sense. I scanned some of the other project directions and it seems that directions leave a bit to be desired.

Excellent art ideas that you really CAN do yourself. The author gives enough detail, but still allows room for creativity. Great for those of us who like a more contemporary piece of art....but not one that EVERY store carries. Almost all of the ideas were ones I wanted to try...not like a lot of "how to" books where you may end up half liking only one or two examples in the book. It's an art class in a book.

Here is a book that really turns out the goods. There is no excuse for an empty wall now and the ideas are easily tranlatable into new directions. I recommend this for everyone from the wannabe artist, impecunious student, to a contemporary decorator. Keep coming with new editions whoever you are that wrote this!!!!
