Alphabetica by Lynne Perrella

ABC book
I’m reading Alphabetica – An A-Z Technique Guide For Collage & Book Artists by Lynne Perrella.

I really enjoyed her first book, it made me start a visual journal, doing collages wish lead me to the world of ATC and trading, wich lured me in to other mixed media sites and finally made me to what I am today. Crazy for new things, doing something creative every day.

Lynne Perrellas second book, Alphabetica was not such a revolution (of course) to me as the first book, but I still enjoy this one a lot. The letters and numbers are really her style, and I understand why she choose this theme for her book. Her art is so wibrant and colourful, I wish I had that kind of energy. I’ll need to experiment more with colours during this autumn I think!

But it is not only Lynne Perrella’s art in the book. I find most of my favourit bloggin artists here, like Claudine Hellmuth and Teesha Moore! And a new favourit Shirley Ende-Saxe. They add their thoughts on journaling, tips on teqnics and descriptions of how to try this yourself.

The best part of the book is the pictures of journal spreads, decorated book covers, details of paint and lists of “influences” and workshops in the end of the book. I can recomend this book to anyone who wants a boost of fresh inspiration!
