A unique technique book, Painted Botanical Collage will show you how to create your own collage materials. This guide takes you step by step through creating mixed-media painted papers, then using them—along with tissue paper, art papers, and found paper, such as magazines—to create perfect collage materials. Cut these decorative papers into plant and flower parts to assemble your designs, adding details using various media.
Working from nature is central to this technique—look closely at the palettes and shapes in actual flowers to create realistic stylized representations. Painted Botanical Collage includes instruction on creating flowers, cacti, succulents, leaves, and other popular botanicals—over 40 beautiful designs in all.
