Painted Paper Art Workshop: Easy and Colorful Collage Paintings Reviews
I'm an artist & this book is almost exactly what I would write about paper & paint techniques for collage. It is very thorough & covers a lot of the fun techniques that yield interesting results. Very inspiring & well worth the investment for newcomers & seasoned professionals alike.
Elizabeth's work is inspiring. Her book is another art form making paper look like her paint and palette. It's everything mixed media. I am glad she showed her technique using pictures first as she shows how to shade,
I am a new, largely self-taught collage artist and I loved this book. It teaches a style of collage that I particularly enjoy viewing and creating. I learned many techniques and look forward to applying some of them to my own work. The art showcased in this book is sheer pleasure too. Very inspirational.
Great book for mixed medium work. Lots of great pictures and easy to read instructions. Glad I bought it.
I bought this book for an art class I'm taking and read the book from cover to cover. It is probably most suited for beginners to moderately experienced artists. It has beautiful projects and shows how to make your own painted papers and goes along well with the authors painted paper tutorials on YouTube. It will get your creative ideas flowing.
Such a brilliant book! Elizabeth has produced one of the best books I have ever purchased. Her photos are beautiful and there are many to show everything she teaches in great detail. She is an incredible teacher! Much thought was put into how she was going to put this book together!! Well done Elizabeth!!
Haven't yet had an opportunity to do more than read through - but it's exciting and inspiring and makes we want to get started as soon as time permits. Shared it with a friend who teaches homeschool art classes - she definitely wants to include these ideas into her classes. The fun part when I read more about the author was discovering that I have one of her pictures on my wall...which I purchased at Pier One.
Extremely helpful and a visual delight. A very talented artist shares her method and gives results. Her work is more painterly and less crafty which sets Miss St. Hillaire apart from many who use this method. For those who enjoy multimedia and abstraction, making one's own paper for a project is the perfect addition. So happy to have found the author.
