Snipping The Stress Away Collage Book


An empowering activity journal full of collage tips and 25 pages of cut-outs to cut and glue as you please.

Cutting and sticking is really easy, anyone can do it and, with a few basic supplies, like paper, scissors and a bit of glue, you’ve got yourself a great kit to start working. Collage, conceived by Picasso and Braque at the beginning of the 20th century, and which the Dadaists would incorporate later as an alternative, renegade response to traditional art, is a bit more than just cutting and sticking: it is experimentation, investigation, learning by doing, and, a great deal of fun. Additionally, it will broaden your vision of the world, transforming and recycling images that already exist to create new ones with different meanings and new aesthetics.

This inventive activity art book combines fun and focus, entertainment and mindfulness. It includes a brief history of collage and practical tips and ideas to cut and paste, draw and paint, and sew and stitch using paper and everyday objects. Each double page proposes to look at things afresh, with suggestion and jumping off points to unleash your capacity for creativity and, ultimately, widen the horizons for expression. It includes 25 pages of cutouts and different creative activities that encourage you to feel absolutely free, to work with passion, and, above all, to enjoy what you are doing. A whole new world to discover!
