Have you been tinkering with mosaics for a while, but feel that you need to take it to the next level? Or are you a beginner looking for a challenge? Then this is the book you need. It looks at mosaics as an art form, where line, colour and texture all combine to produce beautiful works of art. The stunning photographs gracing every page are both inspiring and informative. Starting out as a textile designer, the author recognises how important the choice of design is when you start a mosaic project. This book will teach you how to choose the right design and translate it into a template, allowing you to 'paint' with the mosaic tiles. The technical information supplied will guide you through the selection process of the right design, teach you about the various tiles available, surfaces to work on and which ones to choose for which conditions, materials and tools needed as well as the different mosaic techniques that can be used to complete your project. You will also find suggestions for alternatives if supplies are hard to find in your area. The step-by-step projects are lovely and can be followed exactly, but the author urges crafters to make the projects their own and bring their own personality into them by playing around with colours and texture. The projects include big and small items for the home or to give as gifts, with alternative ideas and suggestions if you prefer a different look or feel.

Hierdie boek neem jou verby die tradisionele voorkoms van ligte, sagte en bykans deurskynende waterverfwerk. Leer hoe om ryk, lewendige beelde te skep nie net met waterverf op papier nie, maar ook met ander mediums en materiaal. Jy behou die waterige gevoel, maar versterk en verbreed die moontlike tekstureringseffek. Die projekte toon hoe verskeie watermediums op bekende dog onkonvensionele maniere gebruik kan word. Verf, ink, kleurpotlode en lapkleursel vorm die kleurkomponent, terwyl tekstuurmediums deel van die repertoire uitmaak. Heelwat projekte is op waterverfpapier, maar skilderdoek, karton en velyn of natrekpapier kom ook voor. Daar is baie eenvoudige gestruktureerde tegnieke wat stap-vir-stap gevolg kan word om 'n baie soortgelyke voorkoms te skep vir handwerkprojekte. Maar lesers word ook aangemoedig om met meer spontane en minder gekontroleerde tegnieke (ook stapsgewys geillustreer) hulle eie skeppende weg te volg en avontuurlustig te wees, risiko's te loop en met hulle gelukkige 'ongelukke' te werk. Minder suksesvolle werk kan op baie verskillende maniere ingespan word en die boek bevat idees oor hoe sulke werk met nuwe kunswerk geinkorporeer kan word. Water-(verf-)kuns is propvol wonderlike idees vir kunstenaars en handwerkers en selfs groentjies sal wil saamspeel en eksperimenteer.

Misplacing your wallet, forgetting where you parked your car, or getting your friend's birthday wrong: these are just some of the many common memory slips we all experience from time to time. And such cognitive lapses don't just plague the elderly: the most common worry of people over 40 is memory loss. A recent study by Newcastle University, featured on BBC news, showed that art therapy has greater benefits than puzzles and exercises when it comes to improving memory function. Engaging the brain in new and creative ways may be the key to a sharper 'younger' mind. Helping to enhance your brain's cognitive function through art therapy techniques, this book contains 30 intricate line drawings of cats and big cats, with space on the opposite page for you to copy the illustration and some helpful hints to start you off. There is also the opportunity to colour in and to create some of your own illustrations as you progress. Gradually becoming more challenging, every page will help to stimulate parts of the brain that are vital for memory retention. With this book you will draw your way to a younger brain.
