    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I have not yet been able to try all of the techniques outlined in it, as I still need to obtain some of the necessary supplies. This is an attractive book to browse through. It has a good sturdy cover, which is nice for a crafting book that is likely to be laid open while one follows along with the writer's instructions. The content is well organized in a meaningful manner. Initially, the various supplies and tools that one might need are discussed. Then each indiv I thoroughly enjoyed this book.

It has a good sturdy cover, which is nice for a crafting book that is likely to be laid open while one follows along with the writer's instructions. The content is well organized in a meaningful manner. Initially, the various supplies and tools that one might need are discussed. Then each individual method of image transfer is clearly described, with plenty of good photographs illustrating the process. The next section of the book is entitled "Purposeful Play" which is a wonderful variety of different projects - there is truly something here for everyone! Personally, I especially liked the "Fauxlaroids" (fake polaroid pictures), the magnets & the stationery set. Next, there is a gallery displaying a range of works by different artists. While not all of the artistic styles match my tastes, they are all beautiful, and quite inspiring. This section will get your imagination going, to come up with even more projects to use these image transfer techniques on! I was pleasantly surprised to find a complete template section, with the various bits of art that were used in the project section of the book. If you wanted to duplicate the project, you could make laser copies from these templates to do so! There is also a page listing various resources, where you can obtain supplies. Although most of the needed supplies are easily found, and possibly already on hand. The "packing tape transfer" is the only method I've tried yet - as I haven't been able to get to a place to make laser copies of my art / photos just yet. A lot of the techniques do require that you have a photocopy of your artwork or photograph, that was printed on a *laser* copier (inkjet will not work) But the packing tape method is very versatile, and absolutely amazing! The first time I tried it, I was blown away when, in just a few easy steps, here I had this lovely transfer from a magazine photo, ready to use in whatever art I chose to use it in! One thing I appreciated about Courtney Cerruti was her style of writing. Many 'art instruction' books go to one extreme or the other. They either go into TOO much detail, drawing out every teeny-tiny item that is purely common sense -- or they don't go into enough detail & assume the reader knows more than they might know. Ms Cerruti has the perfect balance in her 'teaching style'. She gives enough detail that even a novice could easily learn the techniques, but she keeps it at a reasonable length, without droning on & on & on, making it tedious before you finally get done. I am thrilled that I was given this book to review! I will be using it in many many projects, I'm sure!

    This is a book I have been waiting for. I've been a mixed-media artist for 15 years, but haven't done much with image transfer. (Only because I tend to hoard supplies and ephemera...) But I follow Courtney on Pinterest and just love her eye. Here you will benefit from her years of trial and error, which now results in beautiful art pieces. You are given multiple methods for image transfer. And they are easy. And you will not need to invest a lot of money. Heck, for most of them the supplies are p This is a book I have been waiting for.

You are given multiple methods for image transfer. And they are easy. And you will not need to invest a lot of money. Heck, for most of them the supplies are probably already in your house. The photos and layout and instructions are sublime; you just can't wreck it and the author is there with encouraging words. Bonus!! Great project ideas. So original and easy to put your own twist on them. Bonus, bonus!! The work of other mixed media artists is show-case and the work is AWESOME. You cannot read this without being inspired. Now go transfer something! Easily one of the best art/craft books I own. (And I own many!)

    Nice quick survey of image transfer techniques. Does not get into much depth. I'd say a quarter to a third of the book is technique, half are goofy craft projects, and the last bit are some gallery examples and some clip art. 2.5 stars for me-- between "it was okay" and "i liked it".

    Excellent instruction book describing how to transfer images to different media using any one of about six techniques. The step by step instructions were clear, concise, and illustrated. Can’t wait to give it a go.
