Discover how to make creative, personal collages with advice, techniques, and projects from craft author and graphic designer Clare Youngs. We are all born with an inner desire to express ourselves. Making collages, especially in the form of art journals, gives you an opportunity to express thoughts, feelings, and wishes and to capture memories. It is a way of collating and putting thoughts in order. You can look back at filled pages with a real sense of accomplishment. Most of all it is fun! In Creative Collage, Clare Youngs reveals the secrets of collaging, one of her favourite crafts. Learn about the kinds of paper you can use, such as maps, tickets, photographs, typography, and magazine pages, and how to add texture, use layering, and make use of geometric designs. Some of Clare’s amazing collages are included for inspiration, and she explains how she chose the materials and composition for each one. Clare then presents a collection of projects that offer unique ways to display your collages and even make 3-D collages, such as a decoupaged chest of drawers and a family photo wooden block house. Along with helpful prompts to give you ideas for collages, such as “something you saw on a walk” or “a happy memory,” this book provides all you need to get started with this personal, expressive craft.
