These are some books that I'm actually not giving away. I know, can you believe it? I bought these for myself recently and I'm excited to have some time to look through them as well as finish up a few UFO's.
For time's sake I'm only going to give you a quick review of Jane Davila's Surface Design Essentials. I'll get to the other two as soon as I get into them a little more. No fair in reviewing a book you have not even had time to read right?
Surface Design Essentials.
Do you get excited when you see all the design tools and supplies but you don't have a clue what to do with them? Good, that means I'm not alone. This book gives instructions and describes what to do with the supplies that many of us have in a drawer someplace because we did not know what to do with it. No, I'm not going through your drawers....I'm a psychic medium in my spare time :)
- Using Soft Body Acrylics
- Using Acrylic Mediums

So you see, I'm not so generous after all. LOL I'm off to the basement now....that is where my sewing area/design studio/stuff is :)
