From Booklist
When does a crafts book become a coffee-table one? In the hands of designer Roehm, author of At Home with Carolyne Roehm (2001) and A Passion for Flowers (1997), among others, that's when. She combines luscious in-your-face color photographs, minimal text, and a back-of-the-book section featuring supply basics and step-by-step photographic instructions on how to wrap the perfect gift, all of which provides all the right information. Ideas are divided into seasons: spring devoted to sorbets; summer, color and geometry; autumn, rich reds, oranges, and browns; and winter, with its panoply of brocades and paeans to Valentine's Day. An instant classic that emphasizes the author's definition of gift-wrapping as a wondrous form of self-expression. Barbara Jacobs

Collage Discovery Workshop: Make Your Own Collage Creations Using Vintage Photos, Found Objects and Ephemera
Claudine Hellmuth
1581803435
December 2003
Paperback
·
 
From Booklist
In Hellmuth's hands, collage is not child's play but an artistic endeavor. Instruction in 15 different techniques, from glazing paint to creating a verdigris patina, form the core of her work, preceded by introductory pages on tools and supplies. The text is casual in tone and sympathetic to foibles and failures. What's even more impressive is the way she explains something nearly impossible to articulate--that is, how to transform a ho-hum collage into an aesthetically pleasing composition. The emphasis, in fact, is on the journey to art, on learning how to see better, to tell stories, and how journals can be used to capture ideas. A gallery, hints, and safety tips help focus readers on the possibilities of three-dimensional assemblages. Barbara Jacobs

From Booklist
The logical extension of the Red Hat Society--an international disorganization of women over 50 celebrating self and life--is something tangible, something memorable. The results of the society teaming with the ever-ready Chapelle Studios and its designers is this collection of album pages, small items, and alliterative and punny captions determined to make readers smile. Don't expect a particular order or a specific theme except for an effusion of red and purple on every page--and comments from Ruby RedHat, the official cartoon mascot of the RHS. Not all of the 80 projects include instructions or a list of materials; all of the scrapbooklike pages, for instance, feature only a two- to three-sentence description with an idea or two (like using buttons as a frame) and the full-color design. On the other hand, expect good...

October 28, 2005
Paperback

Book Description
This timely project guide concentrates on two of the key materials being newly incorporated into textiles and fiber arts—paper and metal. Both media are covered in separate sections that describe the unique properties of each, as well as textural methods, adding color, and embellishing with stitches. Paper can be molded, formed, cut, torn, embossed, and stitched; metal adds a new gleam; and additional dimensions of the material are explored with soft sheet metals, meshes, wires, and coils.

The Decorated Page : Journals, Scrapbooks & Albums Made Simply Beautiful
Gwen Diehn

Paperback
·
 
From Booklist
Ah, the famous blank book. With the popularity of journaling and self-expression through writing, North Carolina teacher and author (Simple Printmaking, 2000) Diehn opens up a new dimension--the artist's vision of visual memories. Materials and techniques, of course, begin the narrative; the author not only delves into the merits of paints and pens and stamps but also advocates different kinds of everyday supply kits as take-alongs. Most of the book is devoted to the how-tos, from customizing a blank book to avoiding the straight and narrow via mandalas, diagonals, cutouts, or grids. Illustrations come from the artist's perspective: a textured 3-D diary and a rolling-wheels travel journey, among many others. Two- to three-page sidebars highlight specific genres, such as pillow books, nature journals, and...
