Bring back happy memories of your holidays by using paper and knife to create uplifting, joyful landscape scenes from the coast to the countryside.
Papercutting is a perfect craft for beginners, as you can achieve amazing results with the most basic of materials - a pencil, eraser, craft knife or scalpel, a piece of paper and a cutting surface.
Sarah's art encapsulates the beauty of the English countryside, particularly the towns and villages around the Kent coast where she lives. Her use of fresh, vibrant colours and delightful compositions evoke memories of happy times, and expert papercrafters as well as those new to papercutting will find the charming, naïve style of Sarah's work irresistible.
Sarah's down-to-earth approach to her art makes it enjoyable and accessible to all. In the book she includes sections on choosing your materials and colours, and there is step-by-step guidance through all the basic techniques you need before embarking on the twelve gorgeous projects on the seaside, town life, the wilderness, and more.
