BOOK SYNOPSIS: If you love playing with color and form, but can't draw a straight line, then collage is the art for you! Try this reader-friendly guide to dozens of creative ways to arrange materials from buttons to jewelry to snapshots. Though these compositions have generally been attached to paper or canvas, you can use them on new and different surfaces--lunch boxes, birdhouses, even a wastepaper basket. Tips from top designers will help you master the basic techniques; the possibilities are endless!
You can turn any blank surface into a work of art decorated with fabric, handmade paper, buttons, and snapshots. Materials range from inexpensive items from your local store to treasures you have stored away. Combine these items in the 30 projects included.
“Collage remains an exciting medium for stampers. A materials list and full instructions accompany each project, after a helpful introductory section on techniques, composition and other preliminaries. Excellent gallery art...provides inspiration. As an avid beginner or knowledgeable stamper, you’ll find this...ideal for a weekend of creativity.”—RubberStampMadness.
