Paper Collage Chinese Style -- a Crafty Weekends Review & Link Party

Disclosure: Tuttle Publishing sent me a copy of this book in exchange for a review. All opinions are my own. All photos from the book are taken from Tuttle's website.

Have you been crafting this week? I have done some and spent today doing a lot, but I will not be sharing those until next week's review. This week I get to share with you Paper Collage Chinese Style by Zhu Liqun Paper Arts Museum. Unfortunately I have yet to find the time to try any of the techniques and projects in this beautiful book.


The book is divided into four chapters plus an introduction. In the introduction the concept of paper collage is explained. The introduction explains that the techniques in the book are based off of traditional Chinese painting. Chapter One explains the basics and creativity of paper collage and then Chapter Two discusses the materials, tools and basic techniques. Chapter Three and Chapter Four have projects!!

The first project is the Giant Panda and the second is the Giant Panda Head. 

As you can see the steps are illustrated with photographs. Each step is small and the photos really help to see the shape and more. 

It is really amazing to see how the pictures come from torn scraps of paper.
The projects get harder and more artistic as they go. I honestly am excited to try some of them. They look so amazing! I love how easy the book makes it look and how creative you can be with the projects. I can imagine using them for framed art or to make special cards. How would you use these beautiful pictures?  I hope you will take the time to check out this fun book!!
