Around the World with 80 Artists is an arts and crafts book like nothing you’ve seen before. We have 80 artists from all over the world contributing to this amazing creativity book. You will find information for the beginner to intermediate to the advanced crafter and artist, but most of all you’ll be able to see that creativity is something that holds this earth together and brings us all closer together.

The projects will range from coloring pages to mixed media to scrapbooking, card making, cut and create and much much more!

Through this book we will introduce you to many various art techniques, many countries of the world and many creative folk who love to use their right brain. The range and depth of arts and crafts projects is something that has surprised me. I am astounded at the variety of things that are in this book and quite frankly I can’t wait to play with my copy too!

The reason I came up with this project is the fact that we see more and more hate make it’s way around the world. We read about terrible things in the news and at times we forget how beautiful this world is. This book is an attempt to highlight the theme of creativity around the world. You’ll be meeting so many new artists and creative folk who have all come together to work on one project with love and creativity flowing in from many different countries of the world.

20% of the proceeds from this project will go to The Malala Fund to help girls gain an education. Girls who might otherwise not get their chance at a basic human right.
