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