Award winning author/designer Tera Leigh's book 'Faux Mosaics' on creating faux mosaics, will be a great addition to your creative library. You may know Tera as the founder of the Memory Box, Inc. program, one of the 5 women in North America to have won the Harlequin Enterprises 'More Then Words' award or as a very talented painter.

Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary defines "faux" as being an imitation of the genuine article…. from the French word fals or false. The always-innovative Tera has created the look of real mosaics using unconventional materials. The mosaics appear so real that you have to touch them to tell that they are faux.

Tera takes you through the simple three-step process using papers (scrapbook, wallpaper, greeting cards etc.) and Faux Mosaic™ Glaze to make the faux mosaic tiles, Faux Mosaic™ Grout and Faux Mosaic™ Glue complete the supplies in Tera Leigh's Faux Mosaic Kit™.  Next add some acrylic paints, a couple of brushes; perhaps some rubberstamps, inks, the surfaces and you are ready to go. The step-by-step instructions for 20 fun and useful projects are easy to follow, and will make great gifts for your friends and family. I personally will make several of the items for myself!

Another 'must have' for my library.
