"Get comfy, grab a cup of tea and bring out your pencils and paintbrushes!"

That is how the wonderful Julie Nutting starts her book, COLLAGE COUTURE.   Just the first few pages makes you want to invite all your girlfriends over to play in their PJs!  A slumber party!!!

I wrote a while back about Julie's book - COLLAGE COUTURE.

I originally wrote about it on this blog because I fell in love with her work.  I then had the privilege of having Julie stay at my house and teach us her wonderful dolls during Keys 4 Art 2011 and I fell in love with HER!  She is not only wildly talented, but sweet and fun and unfailingly generous.

Well, I got her book today!!!  WOO HOO!!!  I LOVE it!!! It is such an incredible book!  I started reading it thinking I was just going to glance through it today since I am totally and utterly exhausted and find that I can't put it down! 

Not only is the writing friendly and fun, but her instructions are easy to follow and the images are beautiful and, well, I just can't say enough about it.  Not only does she teach you step by step how to do her glamour girls with tons of different girls, but she teaches you how to do these totally adorable shadow boxes and paper dolls!

If you love art - if you love dolls - if, like Julie says, you want to be girly... you MUST have this book!


  1. This made my day glad you liked it. I see a slumber party in the future!

  2. Even if you are not a girlie girl,like me,this totally makes you want to be one,right?!?!?!As I told Julie on the phone,she did a wonderful job with this book...her directions are so nice and concise,that they are really easy to follow. and just a variety of girls!!!LOVE this book!!!
