- FIlled with information to inspire you! Review by Elizabeth Ingraham
If you are a fan of Jan Beaney's beautiful books and her elegant and expressive aesthetic, you will love this DVD. If you want more information on an incredible variety of surface design techniques as grounds for stitching--from painting to discharging to foiling to building fabric from threads sandwiched between soluble film--you'll love this DVD. The instruction is very detailed--like having a personal workshop with Jan Beaney and her partner Jean Littlejohn, who are expert in a wide variety of techniques. Of particular note is how both artists show the process of observation from nature to photograph to journal drawing to fabric translation. I'm so glad I took a risk and bought this DVD.
