Painted paperThere are so many nice new books out right now! These are just a few I’ve got on my wish list that I thought I’d tell you about. I get inspiration from just looking at these beautiful covers, I bet the inside of these books are great too. I want to stamp and print with Traci Bunkers, make painted papers and create fab mail art all day!

I don’t really need the new book Image Transfer Workshop by Darlene Olivia McElroy & Sandra Duran Wilson, because I already own another great book on this subject by Karen Michel called The Complete Guide to Altered Imagery (Mixed-Media Techniques for Collage, Altered Books, Artist Journals, and More) that I haven’t written a review about but it’s on my book recommendation page! I never take time to do transfers so I should really practice some of these methods. Sometimes getting a inspirational book will get you creating. It’s like energy infusions, and to me, books are a necessity of life.
