Contemporary Paper Cutting ProjectsPaperback - 2009
Silhouettes are wildly popular, and these stunning projects transform the nostalgic classic into something elegantly modern. Crafters will learn four beautiful ways to make their own silhouettes: by casting a shadow and tracing along the edges, using digital technology that "silhouettes" almost any image, drawing freehand for a loose "handmade" look, and copying patterns. The 22 decorative items--which range from a glowing lampshade and holiday tree ornaments to napkin rings, votive holders, and layered canvases--showcase the style's diversity and charm, and add bold new touches, like color. Plus, the book includes 50 fabulous patterns that will work in almost every imaginable project!
