Yellow Owl Workshop's Make It Yours: Patterns and Inspiration to Stamp, Stencil, and Customize Your Stuff
Transform everyday objects into handcrafted pieces to wear, share, and display.
 
   Coming from a family of artists and crafters and DIY-ers, this book caught my attention. I absolutely love adding personal touches to things in my home. I love making something beautiful or even just unique out of something plain. I love using my imagination to create new things. This book helps one make amazing things and will inspire both amateur and professional artist and crafters. I personally liked how several of the designs in the book were ethnic. Most of the projects and designs contained in this book look like something from a store. 

I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion.


In Yellow Owl’s Make It Yours, you’ll learn techniques for bringing personal touches to objects all around your home. Upgrade your plain scarf with a colorful abstract design. Turn a dresser into an eye-catching art deco showpiece. Whip up a desert-inspired quilt to enliven your living room.
