Artful Collage from Found Objects

Do you have little odds and ends you’ve saved from a family vacation?  Maybe you have some scraps of fabric, jewelry, or beads from your great-grandma’s craft box.  If you want a creative way to display these little things that mean so much, you must read Artful Collage from Found Objects.

This book is filled with 46 collage project ideas, broken down by section.  There’s great ideas on how to memorialize a loved one who’s passed away, a vacation you recently took, your favorite hobbies, holiday collages, and much more.  Author Ellen Spector Platt teaches you how to layer materials, mix and match mediums, and create a stunning piece of artwork that’s truly one of a kind.

I really like the Skezas Grocery layout.  Made to remember a grocery store built by 2 Greek immigrant brothers, this awesome collage holds pieces of the address, plates, menus, even old labels from products they used to sell.  This is a great way to remember a life that was and an excellent story telling tool to share with those yet to come.

A perfect inspiration for creating gifts and mementos, Artful Collage from Found Objects will give you tons of suggestions for building your own collage out of the materials that mean the most to you.
