This review is from: Fabric Art Collage: 40+ Mixed Media Techniques (Paperback)
What first strikes me about this book is the ideas for using small scraps and fabric left over from larger projects. I'm also struck by the artist's use of colour. I love working in layers because it makes your work look more complex than it is, and Rebekah is a mistress of this technique. The instructions for all the techniques are clear and easy to follow. Even if you know some of the techniques, I still think this book is worth having for Rebekah's wonderful work. She works with a wide variety of fabric and different ways of applying colour. I love the paper buttons in the embellishments section. There are lots of wonderful ideas to experiment with here including a superb section on embossing fabric. Enough to give you a taste of whether you want to go into something in more depth. The book finishes with lots of ideas for small projects including quilts. Brilliant.
