Storytelling

There is a new book in town. 

I am so happy for Roxanne Evans Stout whose first book has just been released by North Light Books. Storytelling with Collage is a special book that brings Roxanne's unique sense of creative style to life. Roxanne is well known for staging and photographing her own signature and stunning vignettes and this book is filled with these inspirational and educational images. 

Taking the definition of collage way beyond what is typically found in a single book, individual chapters cover collaging with textured papers, fabric, stitching, found objects, photos and images, nature, color, wax and metal. Threaded throughout the book are inspirational artist stories, step-by-step projects, sidebar notes, and tasks to complete. Gorgeous imagery is everywhere.

Congratulations Roxanne, on a book to inspire.
