The book was authored by Anna Corba and it retails at 16.95. Worth every penny for the amount of inspiration she offers. I think the book cover says it all.
I have photographed just a few pages so you can see the way she presents her concepts. Anna includes beautiful French graphics and typography.
She offers a sketch page and then a scrap booking style format on the opposite page.
I have spent a lot of time studying and enjoying this book.
Her sketches are so easy to follow. Even a child could do it (or an inner child if you are an adult like myself.)
I love Victorian circus art. I have saved a lot of it to my computer from the Graphics Fairy. I bet I could do something wonderful with this little tent.
Here is my chalkboard style art I shared yesterday. What I did was copy the sketches to the size I wanted and then used white transfer paper to transfer the image. I used the shoe in the upper left, the dress in the lower left, the dress form in the upper right and then the garland that is surrounding it. I love the way the project turned out and it was so easy and inspiring to use this new book as a guide to my re-purposed project.
|I love your visits. Thanks again for dropping in. I hope you have found this book as inspiring as I have. The website on the back of the book is www.chroniclebooks.com.|
