The reader will 'grow their creative wings' by joining the author on a creative journey through seven stages of Taking Flight, from learning to find the sacred in the ordinary, to listening to the whispers of their subconscious minds, to facing their innermost fears. Along the way, the reader's creative process will be deeply inspired by thoughtful prompts, meaningful quotes, probing questions to ask themselves, the author's own vivid artwork, and that of seven talented contributing artists working in a variety of mediums. And the reader will learn, step-by-step, 28 of the author's and the contributors' favorite mixed-media techniques and how to apply them to their own artwork.

5 of 5 Stars! '

This is a great book to start you off on a mixed media journey of your own. It has projects at the end of each chapter with a full list of material required which is very handy and easily converted to products available here in Australia.
It is a very wordy book, which is a good read to get you you into your own creative head space.
Well worth it if you need a boost and are prepared to read not just look at pretty pictures.
I would recommend it!

I had planned on gifting this book to my artistic sister, but decided against that after opening Kelly Rae's book. This book is inspirational. It can reach out and touch the heart of the non-artist and convert them to believing that they too can be creative by following the creative step-by-step processes in this book.

I am really lOVING this book - as mentioned previoulsy it is quite wordy, however I find that I can pick it up and flick to any chapter and just start reading.
it is visually inspiring as well as soul inspiring - I have already made a few canvas's using the books instructions and I am thrilled with the results!


5 of 5 Stars! '

This book is stunning to look at - absolutely! There are fab mini 'workshops' teaching many varied approaches to mixed media art. Kelly Rae's writing voice is inspiring and gently motivating. This book for me,is one of my beautiful treasures; a mentor -for life and creating- in a book.

This book is a pleasure to read and visually stunning. The projects are a great start to get your creativity off the ground. Besides Roberts herself other artists contribute with projects and insights, which gives the reader a variety of perspectives. If you are keen to explore your creativity through mixed media but not sure where the start, this is definetely the book for you. Happy art-making!
