I purchase almost exclusively most of my Art Quilting and Mixed Media books and instructional Videos from Interweave. If you do also, please use my Affiliate/Sponsor link HERE or at the bottom of my left column here on blog.  These little pennies I earn from there I plan to use to supply Art Supplies to children whose parents just can't afford to buy.

BUT did you know they also have FREE eBooks too there?  This week, there is one on Lettering and Mark Making in Art 4.  I LOVED the ideas this gave me.  You can get yours too HERE on their site by signing up for their newsletter. (You can always opt out later if you want to but you may not want to either).  

This week the Freebie is from Cloth Paper Scissors!
