Publisher Comments:

Create decorated paper as beautiful as any found in an art store—and with more distinctive and personal patterns, too. Alisa Goldens methods of applying inks and paints to paper can dramatically alter the appearance of finished works. From artist books and journals to greeting cards, collages, and more, these techniques work on any paper surface and add numerous skills to the crafters arsenal. Create dramatic effects using gesso, acrylic inks, watercolor paints, stamps, stencils, and more. From basic patterning to wet-on-wet to paste paper frottage, plus a selection of nine projects, this book is a treasury of ideas.

 

Synopsis:

Create decorated papers as beautiful as any found in an art store The results will be more distinctive and personal, too, with exactly the colors, themes, and design desired. In her uniquely imaginative style, Alisa Golden helps novices approach the blank page and make the creative process their own. Focusing on ways to paint paper using water-based media--primarily acrylic inks and gesso--she supplies all the necessary inspiration and information for mastering such techniques as washes, dropper outlines, brush-handle painting, and masking borders. Her exquisite examples range from repeating patterns and freeform designs to customized stencils and translucent layered looks, and projects include an origami envelope, accordion-folded album, and decorative box.
