Delight In The Art of Collage

Mar 19, 2013

It’s the name of my new baby, book 3!!! I am so hap­py to final­ly be able to share the title AND a few sneak peeks from each chap­ter. I’ve worked my tail feath­ers off on this one as it real­ly pushed me cre­ative­ly into a new direc­tion that I tru­ly love. My edi­tor Kristin Con­lin was with me all the way on the crazy emo­tion­al roller coast­er of writ­ing and cre­at­ing a book. Believe me it’s one long emo­tion­al roller coast­er too. Some days I was near­ly in tears, which I quick­ly told myself to suck it up but­ter­cup, to being super hap­py from won­der­ful feed­back she’d heard. It’s crazy.

Delight In The Art of Collage

Delight In The Art of Col­lage is a col­lec­tion of Assem­blage, Mixed Media, Tech­niques and Projects. As you know, I get bored eas­i­ly and don’t like doing the same thing over and over and my books prove it. I try to fill each book with lots of dif­fer­ent ideas that can be used sev­er­al dif­fer­ent ways and with any style. I real­ly believe I accom­plished this once again.

Last week, while vis­it­ing the pho­tog­ra­phy stu­dio in Ohio, Chris­tine was tak­ing pho­tos of me recre­at­ing tech­niques for each project and Kristy was busy tak­ing notes and jot­ting down tips we want includ­ed. Delight In The Art of Col­lage is going to be filled with not only lots of eye can­dy but also loads of use­ful infor­ma­tion you can use and apply again and again to any project. Need­less to say, I’m super super thrilled and can­not wait to see how the design­ers cre­ate the cov­er and design and lay­out this book. Of course it will have that vin­tage feel I love so much and I will once again tell a lit­tle bit about myself grow­ing up as a child (hope you all are not get­ting tired of read­ing about my arty child­hood) and will include a few fam­i­ly pho­tos here and there. AHHH it’s all just so excit­ing.

Delight In The Art of Col­lage has four chap­ters… Paper, Met­al, Tex­tiles and Melt Art etc. I add the etc. because right now we are still work­ing on the final name for this chap­ter. It has melt art tech­niques but also oth­er medi­ums. It’s an awe­some chap­ter. And while in Ohio, Kristy took one take type videos of tech­nique tuto­ri­als and of me talk­ing about and reveal­ing a project from each chap­ter. I will post the videos as it gets clos­er to pre-order time (which is going to feel like for­ev­er) just to peek your inter­est about Delight In The Art of Col­lage even more.

I hope you like what you see so far.
