Fabric Printing at Home

My friend, Julie B. Booth, wrote a book on printing fabric with everyday items you find at home and asked if I would be willing to do a review.
I have to admit I wondered if there would be anything new to learn in Julie's book.  I am always on the look out for fun, new things to try.  New "What if's" and so I wondered, would this book be a rehash of so many things I have seen in the past?  Would I find a new technique I would be dying to try?
I'm delighted to say I did learn something new.  I actually learned several new things that are making my little artist heart go pitter-patter!  
Last year Julie taught me to do printing with cardboard tubes.

I used her technique to make a polka-dot brayer stamp and created a scarf with dye and paint which she included in the Contributing Artists portion of her book:
Now that the book is out and I have read the entire thing, I'm most excited to dive into Chapter 4: Wrap it Up, Wraps and Foils, and Chapter 3: Beyond the Potato Print, and Chapter 5: Recycled and Repurposed, and . . .oh who are we kidding?  I want to do it all!
Let me know what you think once you read Julie's book: Fabric Printing at Home.
