Written by a blogger who calls herself an artist so she can sell books and put ads on her free blog. It was very disappointing to see that she had no talent at all and her mixed media projects were straight from Pinterest. There were portraits scattered throughout and the people looked like aliens. I realize that everyone wants to write a book on mixed media because it's fun to do, but they should stick to what they're good at. This obviously is not her forte. I've read several zentangle mixed media books that were better than this and they were written by non-artists.
