ABOUT Collage Unleashed...
Creating with no fear, an edgy style and many layers, author Traci Bautista will bring out the child-like spirit in her readers, regardless of their previous experience or skill level, and prove there are no mistakes in making art. This book combines mixed media collage, altered fabric and journaling. The approach to making art in this book is playful, fun, bright, spirited and funky. Visual appeal will be extreme; plenty of vibrant color, texture and raw edges. No other collage book delivers such easy techniques in such a fun and funky style.
Traci Bautista began making clothes, doodling, lettering and doing “artsy” things at a young age. She now combines all of these passions in her vibrantly colored handmade journals and paintings that are layered with rich textures of stained papers, painted sewn fabric, “girlie glam” ink drawings and free style lettering. Her love for art, led her to leave a career in high-tech marketing to pursue her life-long dream of starting a business.
Traci is creative director and owner of treiC Designs. She designs, [kôL LäJ], an eclectic line of hand painted papers, custom invitations and aRt! kits for collage and bookmaking. She teaches art workshops throughout the country. Her artwork has been featured in various magazines and books. Visit her website at www.treicdesigns.com.
