The book will contain 20 projects all greetings cards, using a variety of techniques, such as stamping, spray-painting and layering, and widely available materials such as stamps, colour sprays and paints. Sara's passion is for making mixed-media techniques accessible to papercrafters of all abilities, so all the designs will be relatively simple, but very stylish.
