An empowering activity journal full of collage
tips and 25 pages of cut-outs to cut and glue as you please.
Cutting and sticking is really easy, anyone can do
it and, with a few basic supplies, like paper, scissors and a bit of glue,
you've got yourself a great kit to start working. Collage, conceived by Picasso
and Braque at the beginning of the 20th century, and which the Dadaists would
incorporate later as an alternative, renegade response to traditional art, is a
bit more than just cutting and sticking: it is experimentation, investigation,
learning by doing, and, a great deal of fun. Additionally, it will broaden your vision
of the world, transforming and recycling images that already exist to create
new ones with different meanings and new aesthetics, apart from the
therapeutic, rewarding experience of the practice itself.


This inventive activity art book combines fun and
focus, entertainment and mindfulness. It includes a brief history of collage
and practical tips and ideas to cut and paste, draw and paint, and sew and
stitch using paper and everyday objects. Each double page proposes to look at
things afresh, with suggestion and jumping off points to unleash your capacity
for creativity and, ultimately, widen the horizons for expression. It includes
25 pages of cutouts and different creative activities that encourage you to
feel absolutely free, to work with passion, and, above all, to enjoy what you
are doing. A whole new world to discover
