Jenn S.: "OMG!! My first canvas paintings: -) I am so so impressed with the book and how easy Mimi Bondi makes the instructions. I was done and speechless to see what I ended up with...: -) I now loooooove canvas and I am loosing my fear over colour and canvas at the same time. So so excited!!!" Michelle P.: "Mimi has outdone herself with this delightful mixed media book, it contains step by step photo's of every step with instructions as well, it is so clear a beginner would be able to start straight away, whether it is on a canvas or art journalling, with minimal supplies. It gives complete confidence that you will be able to 'do as the photo' and be really pleased with the outcome. There are 6 projects in total plus some delicious eye candy at the back of the book for further encouragement. Mimi is a very clear, gentle voice in a sometimes bewildering internet world, plus you can purchase e-classes of the 6 projects as an added bonus. Delightful, colourful, and a wonderful addition to my art world. Well done Mimi." Sherri G.: "I am so glad I purchased this book! Mimi Bondi's positive and encouraging step-by-step instructions are very clear and easy to follow and there are photos to go along with each step. I love mixed media, but spend a lot of time staring at the blank pages of my art journal, not to mention having been terrified to work on a canvas. It's very easy to open this book and just start painting, ending up with a piece of art, (yes, even on a canvas) that you'll love. The photos in the book are just gorgeous and the colors are so happy. I can't say enough about how wonderful "No Shenanigans!" is. I believe anyone who buys it will love it!" MommaOwl: "This is a wonderful book, which I have not been able to put down. Mimi Bondi explains and shows each step very clearly, and for a beginner in this area, I truly thank her. The pictures are beautiful, and color, oh, so much wonderful color in each project, it just makes you feel good to see what she has done and is willing to share. I do not like to pre-order anything, but I took a chance, and I am not disappointed at all, actually over joyed." Kay Parsons: "I am so happy that I bought this book. I am a beginner painter and couldn't find my way to get a canvas completed that I liked. Mimi Bondi leads you through, step by step, to complete a wonderful canvas (or art journal page) at your own speed. The book has beautiful close-up pictures showing you each technique. I have completed four chapters and can't wait to start the next one. This is one of the best purchases I have made all year." Aimee M. Shockcor: "This book is amazing!!! It is full of beautiful color pictures and step by step instruction on how to let loose and let your muse take over and create beautiful mixed media art. It is so helpful for beginners and experienced artist alike." Carol Martine: "This book does it all. Mimi has an extraordinary way with color. So much fun to follow along with her lessons. This book is a must-have for any serious artist." Jane Walters-Morris: "This is a great book to kick start your creative journey. Mimi takes you through every step and builds your confidence with her beautiful techniques. She is an inspiration!!!" Anita N.: "I just love Mimi Bondi's book! It is so full of joy, humor, inspiration and sunshine. And the step by steps is awesome. I would recommend anyone to buy this book."
