A Word from the Author
“For some techniques there are a variety of ways to achieve the desired result. I don’t believe there is just one way or one technique that will work for everyone. I would like you to choose what you think will work for your particular style or taste, and leave behind what won’t work for you.” -Sandrine Pelissier
