The Collage Workbook Giveaway!

by Randel Plowman

By now it's clear that I'm nuts for the collage work of Randel Plowman. I discovered his pieces on his popular site A Collage A Day where, for the past six years, Randel has been creating - you guessed it - a collage a day.  If you've been following me for a while, you'll remember that I've featured his unique collage pieces and images of his studio. I really like his style.

Randel Plowman, A Collage A Day


I was thrilled that Randel recently offered a signed copy of his new book, The Collage Workbook, as a giveaway on a perfect gray. Now, I'm gonna be honest, here. I really don't want to part with this book. It's packed with great ideas and techniques on making collages and it even contains an image library that can easily be copied and used in your own collages.




This is a great book - full of inspiring images of Randels work plus tips for your own pieces.

My sincere thanks to Randel for offering this giveaway.



For a chance to win the book, just leave a comment to this post. You must provide a link to your name and e-mail address if you have a blog, and if not, leave your name and e-mail address in the comment. One winner will be drawn. The contest will close Friday, June 22, 2012 at noon EST.
Good luck!

Oh thanks so much for a chance to win this book! I'd love to have it....I'm just now really starting to play with collage and I'm loving it. I even picked up two 1962 catalogs (Sears and Montgomery Wards) at an antique fair yesterday. lol

The perfect giveaway from A Perfect Gray. I have always loved David on your site but now I have an interest in the collage itself. Layers of fabric and other textiles combined with stone, wood and glass. Photos in black and white mixed with color. Thank you for this post! I look forward to reading your inspirational updates.
