My Review

This is a really love arts and crafts book, and one that made me wish I was more arty.

Full of wonderful ideas of how to paint or colour pebbles. Starting with what tools and materials you need, including what type of rocks, to techniques and tips full of templates to make your own wonderful creations.

My favourite designs were a black and white dandelion clock, dragonfly, owl, and fox, feathers and leaves.

I definitely want to get a copy, as I’d like to give rock art a try, especially in the summer months when I can sit outside in the garden and look for inspiration. 

Highly recommended if you enjoy arts and crafts.

Thanks so much to New Shoe Press and NetGalley for my digital copy via the NetGalley app.
