about this issue

Meet Ruth Rosner and her wonderful found object women. Learn how to make fabulous fabric boxes and try making a wintery wonderland with quirky wire houses. Experiment with embossing on metal tape and play with stencils and foil. Create a faux leather journal and celebrate the holiday with crepe paper garlands. Take a look at the results of our Mixed-media Winter Holiday Gift Swap and be inspired by a papier-mache and thrift-store mash up. Devlve into the In the Mix department for a look at "shiny things", new products and our On Our Radar artist spotlight.
