Jan Beaney and Jean Littlejohn's 2 hour DVD truly brings the various techniques to life as they guide you through numerous processes in their own studios. From expressive and freeform painting to embellishing and foiling, the artists create remarkably unique works from seemingly traditional forms of hand stitching. One of the most intriguing techniques is creating your own cloth from hand stitching onto a water-soluble base. Beaney and Littlejohn are clearly comfortable in front of the camera, and move at just the right pace to keep things interesting, informative, and easy to follow. With both this book and DVD as your guide, their innovative techniques will soon be second nature. Above all, Beaney and Littlejohn show us the power of observation and the possibilities of creatively transforming our surroundings into powerful works of art.
