Reviews for The Complete Guide to Altered Imagery
lovely showcase of art
Reading this book was like visiting the museum for me. There's plenty of eye candy and inspiration and the author shares the techniques she uses to alter different types of images for her art. It's a lovely and varied showcase but though Michel describes the process of creating the artworks, it's not quite a step-by-step guide and may not be for people who aren't familiar with altering images or mixed media, or who prefer a more projects-type book with more detailed and visual instructions.
I would use this book as a source for mixed media art ideas but if you need clearer instructions on techniques, I'd use a book like Surface Treatment Workshop by liberal sprinkles
If you have to buy only one book about mixed media and art journalling, THIS IS IT! It is jam packed with many techniques and has just about all you need to know, to get started.
It's also filled with many bits of Karen's work, all quite different.
I can't recommend this book enough. by Palma Rea
