Lots of techniques, photos & clear instructions

Roni Johnson doesn't have any product to sell which means she can concentrate on writing a great book which focuses purely on ideas and techniques. You will take away from this book literally hundreds of ideas/skills which you can transfer across many arts and crafts from collage to scrapbooking, card making, altered art and beyond! One of my favourite things about this book is that it brings so many techniques together in one place, things that I have come across on the internet and in books and have, no doubt, bookmarked and intended to come back to but never did. Roni has included concise supplies lists and instructions which make replicating the techniques very easy. The techniques range from easy to more complicated and some may be completed with just some basic supplies- so you don't read the book and feel like you need to go buy out your local art supply store! There are also well written descriptions of some supplies and their various uses- very handy to have. I got this book from my local library and was only pages in before I knew I had to own it. I ordered it within days so I didn't have to be without it! I feel that this book is limitless- the art within it and the techniques are timeless. While other books of a similar type will eventually go out of fashion- this is a book you will never want to part with and will return to again and again. After I read the book I emailed Roni to let her know how much I enjoyed the book and she said she had about 3 times as much stuff as her publisher let her put in the book- I can't wait!

Excellent Book!

I LOVE this book. I have been following Roni's blog for some time, so I know how talented she is. This book is packed with excellent ideas and tutorials. The tutorials have full color pictures that really help you understand the instructions. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is just starting out in collage/altered art or who wants to add some great techniques to their art!!

Fantastic Catch All Book

I've been pouring through my copy and really find that it is a great every type of craft instruction book. It incorporates so many techniques and has so many results that I can see many a gift being made from the ideas. I even caught my husband reading it one night. He was really intrigued by the projects.

Very clear instructions

This is a great book for learning altered art and collage. The instructions are very clear and helpful. I love the Teach Yourself Visually books because that is the way I learn best, and this book is outstanding.

Easy To Understand

I love this book! The photos are clear, the directions are very easy to follow. This is a must have book for those looking to venture out from just scrapbooking or card making. The author gives lots of tips and the gallery will get your creative juices flowing.
