Learn to Do Papercutting via Papercut Landscapes

Perhaps you remember artist Sarah King's papercut landscape scenes... colorful and unique, they're hard to forget! Would you like to create paper cuttings that are equally memorable? I'm happy to announce that via her new book for Search Press, Papercut Landscapes, you will learn the very process Sarah developed to create such appealing designs.

With a short list of supplies - pencil, eraser, craft knife or scalpel, a piece of paper and a cutting surface - plus the templates provided in the book and a certain amount of practice - even beginners will be able to create enchanting scenes just like Sarah's.

A self-taught artist, she often looks to holiday photos as inspiration for her cheerful papercuts. Sarah is a natural born teacher and thoroughly explains the process of creating a drawing, transferring it to card stock, carefully cutting the outline and filling it with layers of colorful card.

There are a dozen landscape templates that take you from coast to countryside, and mounting, framing and displaying tips are included too. With new skills in place, you'll be able to go on to draw and cut your own delightful designs.
