Both a popular hobby and a recognised art form, collage encompasses a wide range of creative styles and techniques - explored here by the creator of the popular A Collage a Day blog. Offering step-by-step instruction, visual inspiration and even a library of copyright-free images, this hands-on guide covers all the necessary materials, tools and know-how, from adding colour and transferring images, to decollage (tearing away layers). And to spark the reader's imagination, there are 50 creativity prompts, such as a collage using the letters of a single word.
