Customer Review

on 20 March 2010
I was attracted to this book because I thought it would be fun to create a childhood story. This book will bring you plenty of ideas and inspiration, though it doesn't provide any step-by-step instructions - it is full of tips like how to choose your story and loads of examples. It is full of different artists and demonstrates lots of mixed media techniques in creating books from accoridon and altered books to scrapbooks to collage and photo books.
The book advises you to plan your story out and find the right style to fit your story. You will need a plot and then sketch out the pages, ensuring they all link and then start to make your own handmade storybook. I'm thinking of trying a few things like silhouettes which are demonstrated on the front cover and also drawing, collage, doodles, cartoons and decoupage. It will be fun!
This is a great book, if you'd like to create your own storybooks and recreate memories from childhood and also they make great gifts. Have a go!
