Altered Art: Techniques for Creating Altered Books, Boxes, Cards & Moreby Terry Taylor
Synopses & Reviews
A fast-growing craft trend, handled by experts.
Choose an object—a cigar box, playing cards, an old album cover—and use it as a creative starting point to make beautiful and entirely new items to display and use: thats “altered art,” and its the fastest-growing trend in the craft world today. Here is the first book to explore the full range of its possibilities, from turning a vintage board game into a nostalgic wall hanging to creating whimsical art dolls from childrens blocks. Take a look at the artistic traditions that inspired this movement, and see how to use the crafters familiar tools, materials, and processes in entirely new ways. Paint, collage, pierce, sew, and cut the pages of an old book. Change an ordinary candy tin into a charming decorative storage case with paper scraps, metal grommets, and paint. The possibilities are infinite. The author lives in Asheville, NC.
