The designer, Ms. Eve, was inspired by Julie Nutting's "Collage Couture" available at Amazon. I've "eye-balled" this book but have yet to purchase it. I am a big fan of the Somerset Magazines...Somerset Digital, Art Journaling, Somerset Studio, Memories, you name it, I love 'em all! And I have seen Nutting's works gracing articles and covers of various Somerset mags. Not only am I inspired by Nutting's works, I admire this type of art period. I LOVE paper dresses, dolls and artists who make such beautiful creations. Examples include Vanessa Valencia (view her work and blog), Becky Shander (blog), and Mary Flower (blog). This list could go on an on...
