Author:  Monique Day – Wilde

Overview: (taken from www.chapters.indigo.ca) “Learn to combine texture, line, and color in mixed-media collage, altered art, and montage. This lavishly illustrated book makes this popular form of expression accessible to people of all skill levels. Beautiful photographs of 23 mixed-media pieces are accompanied by step-by-step instructions explaining the materials and techniques used in each piece. The stunning layered projects will get readers” creative juices flowing and inspire them to experiment in this unique and versatile form.”

Thoughts/Comments: Mixed media is a favorite of mine. I enjoy creating mixed media pieces as well as appreciating others. This book is full of various projects with instructions for each one. At the beginning of each project there are a few sentences that summarize the project and materials and / or techniques that will be used. I found myself reading these to quickly determine if had the resources and skills for the various projects. The projects in here differ greatly and there is lots to be learned from this book. At the end of the book there is a visual guide describing the different methods / techniques used throughout the book.
