Review by Ms.Bonafyde
This book is a real gem! Not only is each and every page beautiful and stimulating to look at but it is crock full of fabulous techniques that seem complicated when done but are actually really simple to do. It part mixed media art instruction, part creative soul nurturing, part confidence booster a it is filled with Kelly Rae's own artistic trials and her advice for other who also are on this creative path or want to be. She's also managed to get some really inspiring contributing artists and interviewed them on their process and insights on living the creative life. I would give this book 10 stars if I could!

As a mixed media artist and avid art journalist I love a book that is a feast for the eyes and the soul. This is such a book. Loaded with inspirational ideas, an abundance of images and heartfelt writing this is a must have for any collection.
