Play dress-up with your art!
Paper dolls have never been so fashionable! In Collage Couture Studio: Paper Dolls, you'll be introduced to five fashion-forward dolls from around the world--dress them up in the outfits provided or design your own. Send them out to a London dress shop, the flea markets of Paris and the gardens of Japan. Make a paper doll chain, a treasure box or a beautiful and richly textured collage. This is a book like none other--and with so many cool and unique projects, you'll have countless hours of creative fun.

Inside, you'll find:

5 paper dolls: Emilee and her friends Charley, Belle, Francesca and Kyoko, plus a design-you-own doll template so you can create your own character
10 pages of fun and funky, silly and sweet paper doll clothes and templates for fashioning your own signature styles from patterned paper, ribbons, paint, ink and more
16 super pretty projects--step-by-step instructions for building mixed-media backgrounds and settings for your dolls, including beach scenes and cityscapes. Or create journals, banners, wall art, tags and more for yourself (or to share with a special fiend)

So go ahead, take a journey, try a new adventure, see the world--fashionably, of course!
