Creative Collage for Scrapbooks
Fresh and Fun Techniques for Layering
What is your definition of Collage Art? Whatever your answer, there is no "one way" that Collage Art is made. Collage is, by definition, the assembling of materials onto a surface; any time you have layered a photo over paper and onto a scrapbook page, you have done Collage Art and are therefore, a Collage Artist!
In this book, Kelly Angard takes a personal approach to teaching over 50 techniques that will bring artistic style to your scrapbook art. Through illustrated step-by-step instructions and simple diagrams, she demystifies the techniques that make Collage Art look complicated while encouraging you to create a look that is all your own.
