I've been a follower of kelly rae's journey via her blog for some time and was very interested to see how it translated into this book. The answer is, as far as I'm concerned, brilliantly well!

It's a "how to" book with a lot of heart, but not too much smulch. By sharing her experiences of awakening to her creative self and how she took action to turn this into living an everyday creative life she inspires and delights. The projects shared are also clearly and practically described, doable and yet stretching for artists of various levels of experience and incorporate her own techniques as well as those contributed by other inspirational artists. I read it from cover to cover in one sitting and am now dipping in again to enjoy it at my leisure.

I think most significantly she does convince one that it's possible to take flight as a creative person, whatever the starting point of that journey.

I bought this book from an Amazon recommendation a month or so ago, and I'm so pleased I did. The quality of the book is superb - beautiful photography, lovely layouts. I must admit I've not delved too much into the text yet (I've just dipped in and out) but even just looking at the projects is very inspiring. A must for the crafts bookshelf.

Taking flight: Inspiration and Techniques to Give Your Creative Spirit Wings.
I have found this book perfect for my present state of creative block. The author chats in a very easy and friendly manner and makes you feel that you really can move on in your own way. She guides you through several chapters, chatting and encouraging you along the way to try and listen to yourself and what you actually want to get out of your creative life. She appears to share what she has gone through herself, sharing her thoughts and experiences. They seem real and comfortingly familiar. I don't particularly care for the actual designs that she has used in the book.....but it has prompted me to think of elements that I might like to use that I WOULD like. The author is after all trying to encourage us to develop our own wings and not purely copy hers.

The title says it all, it really is a beautiful book. Technigues are included that I'm trying and having great results. The only thing I have 'had' to buy is some beeswax, could be without it but want to see how a beeswax finish looks. Otherwise had everything in my art room. The author also tells her story, which is very inspiring and encouraging to all artists and wannabe artists. It really is a beautiful book.

The author produces some delightful pictures and shows you how she achieves her richly decorated backgrounds and sweetly innocent figures.

In this book Kelly Rae Roberts also trys out techniques from other artists after first having interviewed each contributor about their creative journeys.

What I didn't like about the book was the 'touchy-feely' language used all the way through, and you are asked to record your 'Winged Thoughts' at various stages throughout the book. Shudder! It just makes my toes curl, I'm afraid. I did like the 'inspirational quotes', from the great and good, though.

Overall, I liked learning about the techniques involved in creating these art works but could have done without the whittering on.

Unlike a lot of other books that show just the products then the final result, this book actually takes you through all the different steps in an easy way. You could almost go through it without reading it. When you start reading, it is so easy. A must for any stage, even beginners would find this book a great asset!
I cherish my copy, one of the best books ever bought!
