Crafters of all levels will delight in this visual feast that offers encouraging and inspiring new ideas for collage. Indeed, few artistic pursuits lend themselves to free-form creativity like collage. Using scraps of paper, leftover cloth, old maps, theatre tickets and other found objects like wood and photos, anyone can produce quality artwork. The authors provide helpful tips on choosing a starting point, texture and colouring techniques, photocopying and image transfer ideas and even creating stamps and stitching on the surface. Lush colour photography showcases outstanding examples of beautiful work.
