I am looking for alternative creative projects to expand my creativity. Molly's class is very well done. She presents quite a few ways to enhance the collage effect of the books and goes through step by step instructing as the class moves along. I would recommend this to others interested in expanding their collage techniques.

Molly Meng has a fabulous teaching technique! She explains what she is doing as she makes the book. Her style is simple which made something I was afraid to try very doable! I have already come up with ideas and my technique has been refined for other projects as well by her visual demonstration and experience.
