I am one of those crafters that has a very large library of mixed media, collage and paper craft books, so it is always a real pleasure to stumble onto something new. Well, not exactly new as I first became aware of Julie Nutting's collage work in a Somerset Studio magazine some years ago (September/October 2009, volume 13 Issue 5).

This book is just plain lovely. As a crafter, my preferred style definitely doesn't lean towards the cute, girly end of the crafting spectrum so I was pleasantly surprised at my overwhelmingly positive response to Collage Couture. There is no doubt that Julie Nutting's personal style is seriously girly, but this is, after all, a book on making your own fashion paperdolls. Having said that, Nuttings has a whole section on how to draw fashion figures (to include the different proportions for drawing children) and once you have the basic techniques down there's nothing stopping one from designing figures/collages with a more edgy feel to them.

Although most of Nuttings figure are faceless, which is also my style preference, she has a section on how to draw faces. She carefully and clearly explains (both in text and pictures)how to make and assemble the dolls, their dresses and the backgrounds. An added plus is that you don't need anything fancy or expensive and even a casual, now and again crafter will almost certainly already have everything they need in their stash. In fact, Collage Couture is the perfect way to use up all this itty, bitty scraps of patterned paper you just can't throw away because they might come in handy one day...that day has arrived!

I love this book! I keep picking it up and getting lost in the fabulousness of it all. Great inspirational ideas in very clear step by step instructions, including all the tools and materials needed for each project. There's even fun suggestions for setting the mood before you begin, based on the subject you are creating.

Julie Nutting has a very friendly, down to earth style of writing, she positively oozes encouragement, even going so far as to confess how she herself had to practice lots when she was learning how to draw and develop her own style. She's very much human, not one little bit scary, writing with humour to put the reader at ease and feel confident in creating their own unique collage. I would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in collage, clothes, and using figures in your journaling. Can't wait to get started!

Extremely pleased with this purchase, the parcel arrived right on time.

I bought this delightful book for my daughter who is at university (BTEC) delving into all areas of art & design before she makes a final choice!!!!!

Julie Nutting has followed her own dream in creating a book that is both attractive and accessible to all ages and abilities. It is packed full of bright images and fashion designs that she has sketched and put together (a little help maybe) with lots of affordable plus easy to do projects set out in clear manageable steps of suitable sized text.

So whether your an budding fashion designer or just a crazy crafter this book is a must for anyone's wish list.

Enjoy!
