Art of Layers Blog Hop

Mar 21, 2012

Wel­come to the Art of Lay­ers Blog Hop… you should have just come from Julie Fei-Fan Balz­er’s blog and hope­ful­ly left a com­ment for a chance to win an auto­graphed copy of Ron­da’s new book “Art of Lay­ers”. To increase your odds of win­ning an auto­graphed copy make sure you leave a com­ment on my blog post before Sun­day, March 25th at 7pm CDT. A win­ner will be picked Sun­day, evening and announced on my blog Mon­day, March 26th. Good Luck!

Ron­da’s altered sewing trin­ket box is fea­tured on the cov­er of her book and can be found in Chap­ter 1 ~ Paper. As you can see it is filled with lots of tiny vin­tage finds which I love tremen­dous­ly. To me there is noth­ing more enjoy­able than dig­ging around in thrift stores, antique shops and/or flea mar­kets for lit­tle baubles to embell­ish and accent a project.

I think F+W Media explained what you’ll find in Ron­da’s book bet­ter than I can so I copied their descrip­tion and post­ed it below.

“Basic scrap­book­ing has you place pho­tos and embell­ish­ments on card­stock or pat­terned paper — easy and…well, basic. The next step for most scrap­book­ers is lay­er­ing. But try­ing to get that rich, inter­est­ing lay­ered look can be very intim­i­dat­ing. Where do you even start? “Art of Lay­ers” teach­es scrap­book­ers and begin­ning mixed media artists just how easy it is to get to that lay­ered look in any paper­craft­ing project. Author Ron­da Palaz­zari teach­es read­ers 50+ tech­niques that will serve as tools to pull out when­ev­er a lay­ered look is desired. The chap­ters allow the read­er to build their skills, from paper tech­niques they won’t be afraid to try adding fab­ric, embell­ish­ments, and stamp­ing to final­ly giv­ing spray inks, paints and ges­so a try.”

If you are not picked as one of the ELEVEN blog hop win­ners and your local scrap­book store does not car­ry Ron­da’s book Art of Lay­ers” you can order it HERE from Ama­zon.

Now, head on over to Nathalie Kalbach’s blog, Nathalie’s Stu­dio and leave a com­ment for a chance to win there as well.

Cre­ative Hugs!
