A Word From the Author:

"Handmade and found tools can be inexpensive and fun. It’s the hunt for the objects that is part of the fun. Look at objects with different eyes; what can you use to make marks? Take a trip to the dollar store, hardware store or thrift shop, or look around your home. You’ll be amazed by the simple tools you’ll find and things that have alternative uses for stamping and printing. Train your eyes to see patterns and find textures in household items and found objects." — Traci Bautista

Instant Gratification Review by Tonia

The ideas in this book go far beyond the basic doodle. I love Traci's instant-gratification techniques and there is no shortage of eye candy in this book if you're looking for a quick art fix.
