Knot one, bead two, and what have you got? Bold jewelry made from an eclectic collection of beads--one-of-a-kind lampwork beads, silver ethnic beads, exotic stones--and a selection of luscious fibers. These 30 beautiful projects show what’s possible when a time-tested technique gets a fashionable update with contemporary materials and a modern aesthetic. The knots are simple and familiar to most crafters: basic overhand, square, and hitches. And once that’s mastered the rest is easy. Create a spiraled necklace out of linen cord and a single stunning enamel and gold-leaf focus bead. Work silky ribbon yarn in an open net to make an elegant lariat beaded scarf. How-to illustrations, beauty shots, and numerous construction tips help illuminate the process.

This book shows how to use an artist's sketchbook in a new way. Instead of the "classic" idea of an artist sketching in a sketchbook, the author shows how to use sketchbooks as a daily working tool. While they begin as a place to collect ideas and inspirations, readers learn how those collections, scraps, ideas, and doodles can lead directly to, and fuel ideas for future mixed media paintings. Specific how to's, techniques, creative prompts, and project ideas are introduced in each chapter to guide the reader through creating individual works of art which launch from a variety of themes. Each chapter includes an interview with well-known artists and bloggers who will share a peek into their sketchbooks and journals and readers will learn how they stay inspired and creative. This is an inspiring and fresh collection of photographs, ideas, and projects that the reader can use on their own to create their own sketchbooks and mixed media works of art whether they are a seasoned artist or someone just starting out on their creative journey.
