With Paper Collage Workshop, you can experience the joy of creativity as you use color swatches torn from magazines to transform photos into original collages. In addition to taking you through both foundational collage activities and intermediate-level projects, this book introduces you to a unique analog-grid system, a color-based collage technique developed by the artist Samuel Price over the past 20 years. Whatever your age or skill level, you will be able to add focus and precision to your creations and turn life into art. Organized by level of difficulty, the book is designed to progressively build skills as you complete projects. Beginning with color-based lessons, you will learn how to use form and line, and then move on to create landscapes, abstracts, and pets.

With their splendid array of colors, textures, and patterns, collages have an alluring beauty unlike any other artform. One of today's most outstanding collagists has produced an indispensable guidebook to the vast assortment of tools and techniques available: grounds and supports for the work, paper layering, faux-lace embellishing, assemblage (which incorporates found objects for a three-dimensional effect), and more. Impression lifts yield an unusual image that duplicates an original picture?but resembles a transparent stained glass window. Rubber stamps, with either dry pigment or heat embossing, work wonderfully too. And look into products like webbing spray, mica tiles, crackling medium, and crystal gel. Lushly illustrated with the author's masterpieces and an artists' gallery.

Mixed media in all its forms—not just traditional two-dimensional, paper-based collage but three-dimensional pieces that include fiber, fabric, a variety of embellishments, found objects, and even repurposed and recycled materials—offers artists an opportunity to move freely across the boundaries of art, craft, painting, quilting, and collage. In Adventures in Mixed Media, Jane Davies shows you how to use this art form to enrich your creative expression. In lessons that inspire creativity, Jane demonstrates a variety of techniques using paper, fabric, embellishments such as beads, feathers, and ribbons, fusible and nonfusible fibers, and even foamcore. Books, bags, mini-quilts, personal shrines, and paper dolls are just some of the projects inside—and of course Jane emphasizes ways to incorporate photos and other personal memorabilia and details into your art. Whether you are a beginner and want to start with techniques like “scribble painting” or “basic collage,” or an expert collage artist eager to learn new uses for familiar materials, this is the book to guide your creative explorations in collage and mixed media.
