What a cool opportunity to own a piece of original art! I think having art from others is just as cool as making it yourself. Which is exactly what The Collage Workbook inspires you to do (it did me!) and it was so easy with the cool prompts and wonderful images included on each page of The Collage Workbook, oh and image library!

More about the book from the publisher Lark Crafts:

Both a popular hobby and a recognized 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 color and transferring images, to décollage (tearing away layers). And to spark the reader’s imagination, there are 52 creativity prompts, such as a collage using the letters of a single word.

Randel Plowman is the founder of the popular blog A Collage A Day ( His art has been exhibited in solo and juried exhibitions throughout the United States and abroad; cited in The New York Times and USA Today; featured in How Design, Artist Magazine, and Somerset Studio; and graced the covers of numerous books.

    After many, many years of never doing any art at all, returned to doing it just last year…mainly abstract expressionism and collage…lots of experimentation and lots of fun. I would love to have a copy of The Collage Workbook to further inspire me in more and more new, exciting adventures. I thank you in advance!!
