Review:

"Aside from the credit card painting...Playing With Surface Design is chock full of project ideas for all kinds of different surface design including stamping, block printing, marbling, watercoloring, and using gelatin and paste paper for prints." - Rochelle New of the Lucky Lucille blog



"In a day and age when paying money for a DIY book is often times second-guessed with the logic, "I could find a tutorial for free on the Internet," this is a book worth buying. Sure, maybe you could find a tutorial for watercolor gift ribbons and nail polish marbled bangles online, but it is the imagery of the book that is so inspiring." - Jennifer Perkins on BlogHer.com
