STORYTELLING WITH COLLAGE
by Roxanne Evans Stout
Techniques for Layering COLOR & TEXTURE
Every collage has a story to tell. Tell your story in paper, fabric, and ephemera collected from your world. This book written by Roxanne will demonstrate and inspire all of us to capture our thoughts, memories and daydreams. She showcases tools and supplies needed to express your memories.
The book is filled with collage challenges and suggestions. It is also filled with a number of other collage artists, their thoughts and collages, as well as Roxanne's own work. In other words there are lots of images to look at and get inspired. For more information about Roxanne and her book go to her blog here.
These are some of my collage papers and inspirations for my collages. Old Japanese books.... old letters from the Kyoto flea markets.
