This book takes the artistic approach of assemblage and collage and combines it with the long-loved tradition of making dollhouses-but these dollhouses are anything but traditional! Begun as an artistic challenge between a group of talented friends, these mixed-media dollhouses include beautiful castles, undersea fantasy-lands, Gothic attics, inspiring tree houses, and much more. Authors Tally Oliveau and Julie Molina share both a host of interesting collage and alteration techniques while showing readers how to construct beautiful fantasy dollhouses. Readers learn how to repurpose found boxes into rooms and houses , decorate interior surfaces, build miniature furnishings, make their own paper dolls, and embellish their houses using a variety of imaginative materials.
