Crafters are always on the lookout for great designs to use in their work-and this collection of copyright-free patterns is a valuable sourcebook that will fill that need. Including motifs, boxes, borders, and swags, these design elements are so easy to mix, match, combine, and tailor to fit any particular craft or desire. But pryographers in particular may want to use them as they are, and take special advantage of instructions that illuminate the best methods for tracing and transferring, enlarging and reducing the patterns for their art. And for truly professional results, follow the advice on shading, perspective, creating shadows, and adding color. The beautiful subjects include birds, butterflies, and insects; buildings; country scenes; trees, flowers, and fruits; celebrations; and alphabets.
