Introducing a compelling new activity for crafters and artists, doodlers and coloring book enthusiasts of all ages. Paint by Sticker includes everything you need to create twelve vibrant, full-color "paintings." The images--including sunflowers, a fox, a hummingbird in mid-flight, two boats on the water--are rendered in "low-poly," a computer graphics style that creates a 3-D effect. As in paint-by-number, each template is divided into dozens of spaces, each with a number that corresponds to a particular colored sticker. Find the sticker, peel it, and place it in the right space. Add the next, and the next, and the next--it's an activity that's utterly absorbing as you watch a "painting" emerge from a flat black-and-white illustration to a dazzling image with color, body, spirit. The pages are perforated for easy removal, making it simple to frame the completed images.
The strong God of Exodus. The ancient poetry of the Psalms, and the eternal teachings of Proverbs. Matthew, Mark, Luke, and the mystical beauty of John. The new heaven and earth of Revelation. Bible verses—an enduring source of guidance, peace, and rejuvenation—are here given a very special treatment in colorful letterpress illustrations that bring each phrase to life in a fresh and meaningful way. The verses are drawn from seven translations (including the New International Version, The New Revised Standard Version, and The King James Bible) and arranged in order, beginning with Genesis 1:1. These selections include 100 of the most distinctly meaningful passages of the Old and New Testament, made even more powerful through the transformative lens of art. Like a contemporary update on medieval illuminated manuscripts, the book combines the timeless words of the Bible with timely artwork—in this case, hand-lettering and illustration in a variety of beautiful styles and remarkable aesthetics from 25 contemporary artists. It’s a new and vibrant way to experience the living word.
Paint by Sticker is the most exciting new idea in activity books, both for grown-ups and kids. A compelling activity for crafters and artists, doodlers and colorers of all ages, each Paint by Sticker book includes everything you need to create twelve vibrant, full-color "paintings." The original images are rendered in low-poly, a computer graphics style using geometric polygon shapes to create a 3D effect. As in paint-by-number, each template is divided into dozens of spaces, each with a number that corresponds to a particular sticker. Find the sticker, peel it, and place it in the right space. Add the next, and the next, and the next--it's an activity that's utterly absorbing, both in the pleasure of peeling and sticking and the growing satisfaction of watching a "painting" come to life, emerging from a flat black-and-white illustration to a dazzling image with color, body, and spirit. Paint by Sticker: Birds celebrates the rainbow of colors and shapes of the avian world: a red-headed woodpecker, a blue jay, an orange and black Baltimore oriole, an electric bright hummingbird.
Paint by Sticker: Travel celebrates a time when elegant posters, in an Art Deco style, beckoned visitors to faraway romantic places--from Venice, with its canals and gondolas, to Cairo, gateway to the pyramids--all through the absorbing activity of painting by sticker. Paint by Sticker is a compelling new activity for crafters and artists, doodlers and coloring book enthusiasts of all ages. As in paint-by-number, each template is divided into dozens of spaces, each with a number that corresponds to a particular sticker. Find the sticker, peel it, place it. And then the next, and the next, and the next, until your "poster" comes to life. Paint by Sticker: Travel includes everything you need to create twelve vibrant, nostalgic travel posters--the stickers, the templates, the intuitive directions. The works include Moscow, home of St. Basil's Cathedral and its candy-colored onion domes. India and the Taj Mahal, crown jewel in a world of fascinating destinations. Bermuda. Monaco. Japan and its cherry blossoms and pagodas. Bon voyage!
Designed for children ages 5 and up, Paint by Sticker Kids uses the same low-poly process to render and convert an image, but simplifies the process for younger artists. The templates are larger and divided into fewer spaces; the stickers are also larger, and more colorful. The result is magical, but just requires a little less dexterity (and time). New for this season is Under the Sea, a Paint by Sticker journey into the world beneath the waves. Kids will create a dolphin, a shark, an octopus, and other denizens of the watery world. The card stock pages are perforated so kids can remove them easily and display, or share, their finished works of art.
