Artful Collage from Found Objects Book Review

Did you miss out on my Christmas in July giveaway?  If so, you missed out on chance to win some great craft books! One of the books I gave away was Artful Collage from Found Objects.  This new book by Ellen Spector Platt features 46 projects for creating beautiful collage artwork by repurposing keepsakes, leftover craft materials and items you can find around the house or even along the street.

As someone who loves picture books and keepsakes, I was very interested in this book, and it didn’t disappoint.  It’s got some really great “out of the box” ideas to help you commemorate the events in your life, such as the collage above, which is based on a trip to the Evergladses.  And it can also help you to create meaningful works of art as well as abstract pieces.

And the projects are centered around repurposing keepsakes, leftover craft projects, stuff from your junk drawer, and even packaging materials.

And similar to the other books, I shared with you for Christmas in July, this one is great for crafters of all skill levels.  If you  are a beginner, it goes through all the tools and materials that you will need to get started and tells you how to manipulate these in to a work of art.  And if your a not a beginner, it can serve as a great inspiration for future projects.

 New this August, Artful Collage from Found Objects is now available on Amazon.
