My friend Ronda Palazzari has written a book and I have to say I am totally excited about this.

Not only do I love Ronda’s personality, I am also a huge fan of her work and I just know that her book is going to rock! I so can’t wait to hold it in my little paws.

**So welcome to the Art of Layers Blog Hop!**

Here is the description of the book:

“Basic scrapbooking has you place photos and embellishments on cardstock or patterned paper – easy and…well, basic. The next step for most scrapbookers is layering. But trying to get that rich, interesting layered look can be very intimidating. Where do you even start? “Art of Layers” teaches scrapbookers and beginning mixed media artists just how easy it is to get to that layered look in any papercrafting project. Author Ronda Palazzari teaches readers 50+ techniques that will serve as tools to pull out whenever a layered look is desired. The chapters allow the reader to build their skills, from paper techniques they won’t be afraid to try adding fabric, embellishments, and stamping to finally giving spray inks, paints and gesso a try.”

I have a sneak peek at a chapter for you. This piece is from the Messy chapter – so fitting that Ronda would send me that- LOL- don’t you think? I love messy and I can’t wait to see more.

If you want to have the chance to get an **autographed copy of Ronda’s book** (only one book per household!) – simply** leave a comment** on this post **till Sunday Night 8 pm EDT** (7 Central, 6 Mountain, 5 Pacific, midnight European Central time) and hop on over to the next person in line for this blog hop and that is Kelly Purkey for another chance to win 🙂

Have fun and good luck 🙂
