Art of Layers

Basic scrapbooking involves placing photos and embellishments on card stock or patterned paper – easy and…well, basic.  The next step for most scrapbookers and artists is layering.  But trying to get that rich, interesting layered look can be very intimidating.  Where do you even start?  “Art of Layers” teaches scrapbookers and beginning mixed media artists just how easy it is to get that layered look in any papercrafting project.  I will teach you 50+ techniques that will serve as tools to pull out whenever a layered look is desired.  The chapters allow you to build your skills, from paper techniques you won’t be afraid to try to adding fabric, embellishments, and stamping to finally giving spray inks, paints and gesso a try.  Ask for my book from your local shop, or you can find it from these online retailers:
