Creating Art At The Speed Of Life: 30 Days of Mixe&hellip by Pam Carriker
5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant!!!, 8 July 2014
This book inspired me in so many ways, I don't know where to begin! I was so happy when I created my own journal, and it has been an amazing journey since. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in art journaling or learning more about mixed media art. A great place to begin, or to inspire and motivate a non-beginner. I will be buying all Pam's books :-)

The book covers the history of childbirth and midwifery, feminism, the use of technology in childbirth, caesarean sections, and ends with the author's vision for the future. There is a chapter aimed at fathers-to-be and… Read more
