She makes something everyday and works mostly doing windows, wedding installations and set design. She is the author of Quarry's forthcoming Playing with Image Transfers. About washi tape she says: "I'm obsessed with washi tape. It's funny that you may never have heard of it, because once I discovered it, I couldn't stop using it, and now it pops up in almost all of my work. I'm a self-proclaimed converter. If you take any one of my workshops, you will use washi tape and then you'll go directly to the nearest store and buy it! It's that awesome.
    Review quote
    "Washi tape is a low-tack tape available in a variety of patterns and colors that is suitable for use on a variety of surfaces. Until a few years ago, the tape was primarily available in Japanese stationery stores or shops that specialized in Japanese products, but now it's available in most chain craft stores (and even the Target one-dollar aisle). Mixed-media artist Cerruti ("Playing with Image Transfers") has an extensive collection of washi tape, and she sings the praises of this versatile craft supply with a variety of small, easy projects ranging from the obvious (use washi tape to embellish a card) to the interesting (apply it to boring black heels for a pop of color) to the questionable (cut fake "rosy cheeks" out of washi tape and apply them to vintage photos). There aren't any instructions, but applying washi tape to a surface doesn't require a whole lot of direction, so the projects are pretty much self--explanatory. -VERDICT The book resembles a printed Pinterest inspiration board more than anything elsea lots of style and not a whole lot of substance. It's just a collection of pretty pictures of things people might want to make, all centered on the theme of washi tape." a Library Journal"
