Scraps. Just the name of this book evokes images in my mind of happily cutting and tearing out words and pictures to combine into a fabulous new collage. And then I freeze. Ohmygosh...how to start? What to use? Where to go from here?
Has it ever happened to you? Well, Scraps: an inspirational field guide to collage is a book that may very well help you get unstuck. It's not full of techniques so much as it's full of inspiration, although it certainly does cover the basic techniques. If collage is your thing (or you'd like it to be) and ephemera is your medium, you will love the visual treats in this book. If you are a more traditional scrapbooker who has been wanting to branch out, this volume from Lark Publishing will make your toes tingle!
