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.
This title features 22 decorative items - which range from a glowing lampshade and Christmas tree ornaments to napkin rings, votive holders and layered canvases - that showcase the style's diversity & charm and add bold new touches, like colour. Plus, the book includes 50 fabulous patterns that will work in almost every imaginable project!
