There are plenty of fun ideas in this book for dedicated artists, crafters or anyone who just wants to spend an afternoon doing something creative. With clear instructions and helpful photos, author Jane Davies explains a range of techniques and shows the reader how to make all sorts of interesting things including bags, bookmarks, boxes, books and journals, as well as mixed media dolls. She also teaches you how to decorate paper to make it more unique, or even make your own fabrics or paper: fusion fabric (fabric, paper, fiber and thread fused together) and fabric paper (fabric and paper worked together). These can all be used for any art project you're working on.

I found the book easy to read and the instructions simple to follow. Many of the projects make great gifts or mementos and are simple enough to be tackled by beginners, but there's also stuff that would interest the more seasoned crafter/artist.
