This book is beautifully presented. I was hoping each artist that was profiled gave more explanation about the techniques that they used for the project in the photos. It is more of a "that's a cool art piece" as opposed to " wow, that's the steps they used" , now I'm going to try that. "

My Review: This is absolute must have for the artistic one out there and even for some of us without a lot of talent. One of the great things about the mixed media is there is not a lot of hard and fast rules. You can let your creativity shine. Another thing I really liked about this book is you don't have to break the bank to get started. There are so many great ideas for the stuff laying around the house that would ordinarily be tossed but can be up-cycled to beautiful art pieces for your home and gifts for the ones you love. Maybe even earn a little in a gift shop. Now the downside. I am having trouble throwing anything away! Seriously though if you like crafts get this book. It is well done. It gets a 5 star.

Adventures in Mixed Media, - this book blew me out of the water.
Awe inducing, inspiring and more wonderful than I have words for.
I was moved to tears at how beautiful this book was.
The artist/author could make a killing with an Etsy store.

A book about making mixed media art or upcycling.

The crafts are easy enough even a beginner (ie: Me) could start and not feel overwhelmed or intimidated.

You also don't need to run out with a big shopping list of things to buy to be able to start.
The wonderful thing about upcycling is you re-use and re-purpose old stuff into something new and useful. Great for your wallet and the environment.

The thing I loved most about Adventures in Mixed media was the videos (yes, you read that correctly, videos) and links.
You're not just given a bit of information on how to get started and then abandoned.

There is a community to embrace.

If you have an inner artist, a creative itch or you have been curious about upcycling that seems to be taking the net by storm this is the book you want to read.

Five star material. My favourite art/crafts book, one I will definitely keep close at hand to re-read but also one I will be spreading the word about to anyone who will listen!!

This is a great book for both the novice and the experienced 'upcycler'. Instructions are clear and the photography inspiring. I am a very experienced upcycler but haven't tried crafting with mixed media papers and suchlike in this manner before. I have been thoroughly inspired to give it a try. The suggestions for the mixed media papers are a fabulous way to use up all those tiny little snips and scraps that are just too beautiful to throw away. Do as Mahe suggests and let your own creativity be inspired by the projects in the book. Use her ideas to create your own works of art.
