I just got a copy of Sherrill Kahn's book "Creative Embellishments":
I have devoured the contents, and started gathering materials to learn all I can about the wonderful techniques she describes in the book. I also ordered 2 others by her that go into painting and mixed media techniques, so I think my winter explorations are fully mapped out! If you haven't seen this book, do check it out on amazon.com or other book venues. It is a veritable feast of color, pattern and textures! I will be posting more about my adventures through these wonderful books over the next few months, and hope to have items for "show and tell" soon!
