A fantastic source or reference book for anyone seeking inspiration for Art Nouveau projects or ideas.
With over 250 line illustrations, this book is packed with ideas that can be used to create a whole range of decorative projects. Here you will discover simple and ornate borders, stylised flowers, beautiful birds and butterflies, figures, fruit and much more. You do not need artistic skills, just photocopy or trace the motifs, pictures and patterns, then transfer them on to your project pieces. You will soon discover how easy it is to make unique designs for yourself, or friends and family.
The first section of the book offers a gallery of finished pieces which show how the illustrations can be used to decorate cards, boxes, panels, a bookmark and a cushion. The techniques vary from simple colouring and layering to glass painting, parchment craft and embossing.
This book uses material from the Design Source Book series, Classic Glass Painting and Art Nouveau Cards by Judy Balchin.
