    I had the opportunity to ‘peek’ at Nita’s new book online. Although it won’t fit in my Christmas stocking, I am sure my better half will surprise, but make me hunt for the joy. Nevertheless, Nita’s books are those that keep on giving.

  2. Here is a link on how to purchase your copy online as well as have author Leland ink. Also take note during this introductory period form Nita, there is NO shipping and handling fees!
    Best always, Ben

    An accessible treasure
    Nita Leland’s New Creative Collage Techniques book is a great inspiration to me; in fact, I am grateful for my new creative “toy” because the projects in the book are not only fascinating, but also a visual educational delight – a real page turner, hard to put down treasure trove of learning.
    The information is so well put together with the many examples, some easy and others that are more involved. I have already tried several and I have enjoyed doing them.
    This book will be within my reach and nestled among the many other Leland books I use in my reference and creative process.
