don't you just love it when you find a book that you not only like, but you also actually do some of the projects? for me, "Scraptastic!" is just the book. this fun book by ashley calder is filled with clever, updated techniques to work with wire, paper, fabric, paint, and other great stuff. the instructions for each project are well written, and i appreciate that many of the steps include photographs! what i really love about this book is that, while ashley has given us many specific projects, it's really more about the techniques, and you can easily adapt it to your own style. many of the pages of my copy of this book are already dog-eared, waiting for some free time to experiment and have fun! check it out here and see what you think!
