Techniques and inspiration abound in this book! For anyone interested in getting into collage art this is one of the best books I have found.
Claudine Hellmuth provides wonderful examples of many techniques using beautiful, page by page pictorials and instructions. Clear and concise directions using many different mediums keeps it interesting and fresh. The projects in the book are very cute and easy to follow, maybe not my particular style, but the point is she has given clever and simple examples that I can experiment with and adapt to my own style. There is so much "how to" value packed into this little book it is a great learning tool.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Treat yourself to this book!
A whimsical, color packed learning tool for everyone! Lots of exciting techniques to experiment with and unique projects that build on these techniques make this book a real boost to your creative confidence. Claudine's zest for creativity comes through as she encourages everyone to find their own unique, individual style and approach to creating. As usual she provides great insight and guidance with sections such as: Developing your Personal Style, Bringing Personal Imagery into your Artwork and the Power of Color (which is prevalent in this book!). Claudine's joyful Poppet art throughout will remind you that making art is for all of us and makes this a reference to treasure!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

wonderful - fresh and whimsical
Claudine's style is fresh and whimsical and unlike any that I've seen. Her latest book is delightful and makes you want to stop whatever you're doing so that you can start gathering your supplies and plunge right in on her project ideas. I love her use of bright cheery colors and simple line drawings. WONDERFUL!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
