Mixed Media Explorations
Blending Paper, Fabric, and Embellishment to Create Inspired DesignsBook - 2006
"With a sense of humor and creative abandon, renowned mixed-media artist Beryl Taylor shows you how surprisingly easy it is to turn fabric, paper, stitch, and embellishment into artistic treasures to keep and share. Using her own art as examples, Beryl gives step-by-step instructions for making projects like greeting cards, wall hangings, and books, using the latest mixed-media products and techniques, all the while encouraging readers to follow their own instincts and experiment." "You'll learn how to: Apply basic design principles like layering, highlighting motifs, and creating grids to give your art depth and meaning. Use six simple embroidery stitches to add interest and texture. Turn favorite papers into fabrics that can then be stitched or quilted. "Age" your art by etching, burning, and tearing. Create richness with metallic threads, paint, and rub-ons. "Embed" fibers and found objects. Use everyday items like brown grocery bags, wallpaper scraps, and bleach to create texture. Stitch through metal. Most of all you'll be inspired to follow your heart and explore your own creative talents. Book jacket."--BOOK JACKET.
