In "The Art of Personal Imagery", author Corey Moortgat introduces readers to a new approach to collage, one that blends traditional collage techniques, such as the use of symbolic images and words, with typical methods of chronicling life events, such as journaling and scrap-booking. The result is innovative, fresh and meaningful collage that uses modern photos as well as vintage images, personal writing as well as words from antique books, to commemorate everything from special occasions to extraordinary everydays.With step-by-step instructions and photos for countless techniques and nine intensive projects, Moortgat teaches readers the secrets behind the distinctive multi-layered look of her collage.Using a wide variety of collage surfaces (including wood, vinyl, fabric, foam core, corrugated cardboard and more), readers will explore their own personal symbols and icons and experiment with new ways to express themselves through their art.
