Happy Sunday, folks. Today's book is Collage Playground, by artist Kimberly Santiago.
Kimberly is a fellow North Light author and her artwork is very beautiful. In fact, there is a lot of interesting art in this book, although the cover and interior design is not the best I've seen from North Light.
Kimberly provides the reader with a very precise way to go about making the projects in her book. And it is most definitely a project book, very craft oriented. There are a lot of new-to-me materials, such as double tack mounting film, self-adhesive foam pop-ups and self-adhesive mounting board. Fusible webbing is used as well. In her "heavy machinery" supply list there is a color copier, sewing machine and computer.
Kimberly's approach to art-making is very technical and precise. In fact, I immediately thought of my sister while reviewing this book. She is an experienced crafter and loves working on cards and other paper craft projects.
I hope that this gives you a good idea about what to expect from this book. This is a good book for experienced and organized crafters who enjoy clear step-by-step instructions. If you enjoy computer work, thinking ahead, planning, and using new products this may be a good book for you.
Again, when reviewing a book, I review it for the reader. Not for me. I did get a free copy of this book for review. Just sayin'. I like to be as honest as possible with book reviews.
PS: sorry about the truly crummy photos. xo Diana
