This is a good introduction to collage. I may have found it more useful if I came from a scrapbook background, but I am a painter and so that has influenced how useful I found this book.

Kim's writing style is friendly and conversational and really easy to read. I liked her emphasis on playing. Which was evident throughout the book. Having fun, trying new things. There is a good basic introduction to art supplies that would be helpful in collage. Then Kimberly went through some projects to create

Collage Playground provides a solid start for a beginner collage artist. There is a useful introduction to the tools and materials needed to create collages; there are 25 projects that are explained clearly step by step with accompanying photos; the projects are relatively easy to execute; and Kimberly Santiago's style is bright and colorful.

The book teaches basic techniques like creating your own backgrounds and layered collages, adding depth and texture through the use of text or popup images.
