Mod Podge Rocks

While sewing projects are constantly on my mind, other crafty pursuits are sometimes more difficult to come up with. Even though I browse local craft stores for new products, I’m not always sure what to do with them. Consequently, when I saw that a new book was out called Mod Podge Rocks!: Decoupage Your World, I knew that I had to check it out. I was lucky enough to not just win a copy of the book from Crafty Modern, but lots of extras too – I honestly didn’t know they made so many types of Mod Podge these days! Overall, I found the book to be helpful in knowing what products to use, when. I also liked that there were numerous tips given throughout the projects that help you achieve more professional looking results. However, I think that a lot of the projects fall flat of ‘impressive’. Maybe it’s because I’ve seen similar items on Pinterest, blogs, etc. for so long that a lot of them didn’t seem novel (my only exception is the jewelry made from Dimensional Magic – a product that seems to produce a resin like finish). That’s not to say I won’t give any of them a whirl – in fact I’m definitely going to try my hand a a few of them and get my feet wet in the world of Mod Podge, but I’m more likely to try out my new found knowledge in recreating some of the inspired projects in the gallery section of the book now that I know what I’m doing!
