For all you readers who have wondered where the heck I've been these past months, I can finally admit... I've been busy writing a book!
I'm so proud to announce the release of my 5th book. Cards To Canvas.
My previous publications were all co-authored with Marianne Walker and focused on Copic coloring. This book is different. VERY DIFFERENT.
I tackled this book project on my own. (Well, not really on my own - there were a LOT of uber talented folks who were involved in the process along the way and I'll get to them in a minute.) What I mean is that this is the first publication that I authored by myself and I'm pretty darn proud (if I do say so myself.)
This book is not about coloring, but is a book designed for crafters who want to LEARN some stamping and cardmaking techniques, DABBLE in some mixed media fun, and then APPLY those techniques and mediums to canvas wall art (or desk art)!
The 80-page book includes a wide range of product information, step-by-step illustrated instructions for each technique, and 26 beautiful, full-color projects (with instructions) that showcase a wide variety of products and techniques. Some of the topics include: mark-making, stamping and doodling, collage, embossing and adding texture, adding color, faux finishes, and creating backgrounds.
Projects range from whimsical to artsy to vintage and feature something for all skill levels.
I was able to work with a number of amazingly talented designers, many of whom I had silently stalked before asking them to join me on this journey. I consider myself completely blessed to have work from the following artists grace the pages of this publication. I could never have done it without their generosity and talents.
If you get a chance, visit their blogs and leave some love, I know you will be inspired!
I also had the honor to work with Annie's again for this publication and I have to say that everyone from the editorial team, to the graphic designers, to the photography staff have outdone themselves! I'm thrilled with the quality of this book and I couldn't have asked for a better team to work with.
The new book is now available in either print or digital formats and can be purchased from many of your favorite crafting stores or online bookstores. It is also available directly from Annie’s HERE.
I want to thank everyone who continues to follow me, takes classes from me, reads my magazine articles and purchases my books. I love being able to share my knowledge and skills and I hope to continue to inspire!
