Synopsis: Play dress-up with your art!

Collage has never been so fashionable! In Collage Couture you'll learn how to sketch fashion figures, create stylish dresses from patterned paper and apply a variety of textured backgrounds to your collage pieces. With styles ranging from cute to elegant and sweet to sophisticated, these mixed-media projects will transport your art from the studio to the runway!

Collage Couture features:

   • 22 super-pretty projects, from collages on canvas to framed shadowbox art to gifts for your fashionista. Play with your materials—paper, paints, ink and markets—to create pieces you'll be happy to display and share.
   • Illustrations and easy instruction for creating fashion sketches and silhouettes. And don't forget the details: learn how to add eyes, lips, hair and, of course, clothing!
   • Tips and advice on setting the mood in your studio, from enhancing your art space with flowers and china to wearing a tiara as your work! Why not feel as pretty as your art?
