You'll never look at a piece of paper the same way again! From shopping bags and newspaper to materials from art supply and commercial paper stores, any piece of paper can be transformed into a work of art. Using readily available materials--many of which you probably have on hand--you can create the most extraordinary decorative effects. Learn more than two dozen exciting techniques, including sponging, spattering, smoke smudging, faux finishes, marbling, suminagashi, paper dyeing, gilding, webbing, and creating dimensional effects. Then discover unique ways to showcase your creations from an accordion fold book to gift boxes and bags to jewelry made from the tiniest scraps. Throughout this full-color idea and instruction guide, the work of talented paper artisans offers infinite inspiration. Since paper is one of the least expensive craft materials, it offers a nearly endless opportunity to experiment and explore. So get ready to have some fun! 128 pages, 8 1/2 x 10. NEW IN PAPERBACK
