Artist and teacher Wen Redmond shows how by sharing 42 of her main techniques (and many variations) here. . Makes incorporating digital techniques nonintimidating and exciting, thanks to Wen’s engaging mantra of “The only limit is your imagination!” . Step-by-step photos and instructions for each technique, plus demonstration projects . Hundreds of images of Wen’s artworks show options and ideas. . The techniques can be added to mixed-media projects, fiber art, or photography. .
