On Beading Arts, I've been sharing about how I launched the fourth (and probably final) chapter of my brand new e-book. The series is called "Every Bead Has a Story - mixed media bead embroidery", and chapter four is subtitled "Found Objects and Unusual Materials". Chapter four is 82 pages long and covers more techniques that will enable you to tell a story better than ever before with your bead embroidery: wired elements, resin, buttons, hardware, liquid clay, silicone, and wool roving. There are three step-by-step projects included that will help you get started integrating the texture and drama of mixed media objects into your bead embroidery. You can read more about it at the link above.

I'd love to win your e-book on 'found objects and unusual materials'. Mixed media with stuff I find - stuff other people have thrown away - is what my art is all about.
I love your blog - your tutorials are so good.
I very much would enjoy winning your e-bookchapter. I'm activly involved in combining multimedia with my stitching and fabric jewellery.
I'm a student at a college of further education in England with wonderful tutors who are up for trying whatever I can dream up.
