Showcases stunning, full-color photographs of the newest mixed-media technique: a unique blend of photography, watercolors, pen and ink illustrations, and needlework design, created by Judith Baker Montano, an internationally renowned artist, whose life speaks through her beautiful fantasy landscape and seascape crazy quilts. The montage technique is more than the sum of its parts - more than quilting, more than embellishment. Starting with a computer-manipulated photograph, Judith combines grafted patterns, crazy quilting, manipulated fabrics, embellishments, dyeing and embroidery techniques. After a bit of history, Judith gently guides you through every step of the creative process and inspires you to a new level of personal expression. This highly readable and visually exciting book will show you how to create a one-of-a-kind fiber masterpiece. More than nine subjects in one book (Getting started, Crazy Quilting, Cottages, Watercolor painting, dying fabrics, computer skills, photography, Landscape/Seascape, Patterns, Underwater, Stitch Guide, Source guide) will give you the confidence to create your own works of art. It is color throughout with beautiful photographs and illustrations.
