Collage in Color Review

Collage in Color Vol. 1

This is one of those emags from Interweave – the first one about collage. As I’ve said before, I love regular magazines I can hold and drool over, but I also enjoy these that have videos embedded of some of my favorite artists and pdfs I can print and save.

Some of the articles in this issue include Torn-Paper paintings with Wanda Edwards, The Green Studio with Jill Russell, Make it Quick by Karen Michel and Art Party with Mandy Russell’s Birds on Bunting.

But there is more – a total of 19 videos, interactive slide shows, and lessons in color theory and collage tools.

This issue also has an interview – three short videos – with Alisa Burke on her 10 color tips.

I remember as a teenager making a huge collage for my bedroom wall. I sure wish I still had that! I really liked making them back then but somewhere along this life journey I’ve become¬† somewhat intimidated with the process. This article and the videos really inspired me. It even got me to stop the emag and make a collage. I’ve made several more since this one and really have enjoyed reconnecting to that teenager!

Fearless Julie Fei-Fan Balzer shows us how to add stamping to our collages and she does the unthinkable – she cuts up her stamps! In three videos she walks us through this. What a great way to create more stamps.
