The mailman was very good to me this week. Several Amazon orders arrived at the same time, inclucing this book, The Collage Workbook by Randel Plowman. And I have to say it's my favorite of the bunch.
This is a beautiful book, filled with lots of wonderful collage pieces. There's also a website, where you can submit your own creations as well as links to free graphics - tons of links. And Randel's regular blog is choc-full of wonderful art as well.
The book contains 50 "prompts," covering things like design,materials, and techniques. There's also an image libary that can be copied as well. It was inspiring, and I spent quite a bit of time on Thursday making a few of my own. Like this one with pieces ripped from magazines.
