Making Art for Memory's Sake

Keeping memories is so much more than just sliding photographs into the plastic sleeves of a photo album - it's an art form. Inside Artful Memories, co-authors Carol Wingert and Tena Sprenger show you how to take your memory art to the next level by creatively combining traditional artist's mediums with fabric, papercrafting and bookmaking supplies.

You'll learn how to:

  • Alter and enhance photos with art supplies, like watercolor, acrylic paint, tar gel and even a Polaroid Day Lab machine
  • Find inspiration in everyday items - like clipboards, fabric and even cabinet doors - and use them to creatively display your photographs
  • Create all kinds of memory art, including sophisticated scrapbook layouts using paper and fabric, books with pages made of everything from transparency sheets to canvas, and even personalized art for your walls

From image transfers to book binding, Artful Memories combines the hottest techniques in the memory art world to help crafters make the most of their treasured memories. You'll find projects you love in each of the four chapters: Paper Arts, Fabric Arts, Book Arts and Wall Arts. And you'll be inspired by the work contributed by some of the hottest names making memory art today that fills the galleries at the end of each chapter.
