If you want to discover the fun of collage then this fabulous book is the perfect kit. Highly respected and successful collage artist Maria Rivans has gathered hundreds of beautiful, quirky, and downright daft images, and they're all here for you to cut out and stick.
Whether you are making a mood or inspiration board or just want some unique art for your wall, there is no need to endlessly flip through old magazines to find appealing images. And you don't have to ruin your beloved books by chopping them up. With 1500+ objects included, the possibilities to cut out and collage are limitless. Flowers, birds, cats, and butterflies can be combined with buildings, eyes, moustaches, and men in dubious pants to create extraordinary original artworks and talking pieces!
Separated into categories like people, industrial, art & culture, domestic life, nature, world, ephemera, and alphabets, the book is filled with images ranging from fruit to architectural details to planets and beyond. While the book includes multiple background options, you can also add layers to existing photos or images you have at home. No matter what you choose, it will be completely one-of-a-kind.
Who is this for?
With an introduction to collage styles and tips on techniques and composition, this is an ideal activity for artists of all ages and abilities.
A perfect gift or self-purchase for anyone seeking arty fun and a great deal of sticky silliness!
Collage is undergoing a revival among artists and hobbyists seeking a mindful activity that also produces a beautiful end product. Grab your glue stick and join the fun!
