Do you have a shelf of old books that you love, but rarely touch? Well why not give them a new lease of life and use them to create one of the 35 beautiful projects Clare Youngs has developed? Divided into five chapters, you will discover ways to make greetings cards, stationery, animals, display scenes, and more using pages from all kinds of different books. The beautiful typography and vintage-style artworks will provide interesting color, pattern, and texture to designs such as the owl and pussycat pop-up scene. The illustrations in children's books give a vintage feel to bunting or an alphabet to decorate a kid's room, while maps and atlases work well on lampshades or birthday cards. Use elegant images from interiors books to decorate a wardrobe and chest of drawers or cut away at a hardcover book to make displays like the cliff and lighthouse scene. The designs use a variety of crafting techniques--from quilling to collage and die-cutting--and each project comes with easy-to-follow instructions and step-by-step artworks. There's also a helpful techniques section at the back that will be of real use to first-time crafters, handy time-saving tips that more confident crafters will appreciate, and a templates section.
