Creative crafting: 52 brilliant ideas for awakening the artistic genius within
Remember when you were a child and would happily spend hours creating a collage to present to your mum and dad? Children are often happiest when left alone with materials to create things - they let their imagination take over and come up with wonderful ideas. But as we grow up we often lose touch with our creative side as 'real' life takes over and we find we have no time to do the chores let alone sit down and create something beautiful just for its own sake. Creativity doesn't just fade away though, and increasingly people are turning back to their favourite childhood arts and crafts skills in order to relax and rediscover themselves. "Creative crafting" is the perfect handbook for anyone looking to expand or re-awaken their creative side, and is packed with inspiring ideas and advice for creating something really special, whatever you're into - the only limits to what you can create are those in your imagination!
