The wait is over. . .

Today's arrival from the UPS driver proved to be a happy event for us here. We had been waiting for more than a year for Cheryl Prater's new book "Mixed Mania". We felt like we were with her every step along the way during this long process of writing, editing, re-writing and re-editing.
Just look at the excitement on Joyce's face as she opened the box!

Mixed Mania
Recipes for delicious Mixed Media Creations

In this smart and sassy approach to mixed media art, Cheryl Prater and Debbie Crane
feature 20 + projects to you inspired. From artist books to assemblage, art quilts to
art dolls, it's all here, plus how-to instruction on a variety of mixed-media
collage and surface design techniques.
Their unique approach goes something like this:

START WITH APPETIZERS - little nibbles of art
MAIN COURSE - more complex projects
SWEET TREATS - one of a kind gifts for special occasions
