Description

Altered art is hot. It's a current term that encapsulates all the layered, complex imagery used by artists who make altered books, keep artist journals, and do collage. The concept is even crossing into the scrapbooking world. This is the most comprehensive technique book published to date for creating altered imagery and covers a range from traditional art techniques to digital art techniques, showing how to blend and merge the two successfully. The technique section is followed by a project gallery that shows how to use your finished imagery in collage, journal, and altered book projects. There is significant crossover among artists who work in the areas of collage, artist journals and altered books and although there are books on each of these distinct areas of art, there is not a good comprehensive book that thoroughly covers all of the methods of visual imagery and manipulation that can be applied when creating collage, altered books, journals or even for framed art, until now. Techniques include: I. Altered Imagery using Photography Altering 35mm prints (3 techniques, Altering digital photography Altering Polaroid photography II. Altered Imagery using your Computer Working with printers Working with scanner
