Unfurling by Misty Mawn

Unfurling is a workshop in book form, offering a unique mix of inspiration and technique exercises. 

The book begins with art exercises in drawing and painting that include portraiture, contour drawing, backgrounds, layering, and working with still life, followed by collage and image transfer techniques.
The second section offers exercises and projects in stamp carving, paper pottery, sculpture, origami, paper doll making, and surface design. These tactile explorations offer an enjoyment of the process as well as wonderful handmade projects. The last section shares a variety of approaches to visual journaling. There are instructions for binding your own journal, prompts and ideas for working on your pages, and a variety of exercises using photography and poetry as ways to inspire and inform your journal keeping.
