April Book Give Away!

"Printmaking + Mixed Media" by Dorit Elisha is a book I've had in my personal library for a couple of years and it is definitely one of the best reference books you could own.  If you love print making, surface design, journaling, etc. on paper or fabrics, you will love this book.  It's full of fun and inspiring ideas to get you started exploring some very creative ways for printing.
Over at the "Latest Trends in Mixed Media Art" yahoo group (link is in the right sidebar), we will be using one of the amazing projects found in this book as our May technique.  Please join us for a terrific "free" technique taken directly from the pages of this fabulous book!
For a chance to win an autographed copy from the author herself, please leave me a comment below with an e-mail address or some other way to reach you, so I can notify you if you have won!  This give away ends at midnight April 15th!  Only one comment per person, please.  The comments are moderated, so if you don't see your comment post immediately, it is because I have to approve it.  Thanks and good luck!

I just bought one from Amazon fairly inexpensively. Looks interesting though. Since I won last months you can give someone else a chance to win this one! Hugs and thanks for doing all this cool stuff Cindy, my Artistic style has changed so much from all the things I have learned. I am very pleased with this. Sanna

Oh I've been interested in printing on fabric for a while but just haven't found anything to inspire that "jump start". Maybe this would be it....especially if it has a fun approach! Thanks for the chance to win such an interesting book.

Cindy, thanks for organizing the book studies. My two daughters and I love to do printmaking projects. We are beginners and have done gelatin prints as well as designed our own stamps. This book would be a great tool to expand our knowledge. I am excited to learn the new technique! Thank you for the opportunity. ~Jennifer jjv1040@yahoo.com
