Gail Sydenham‘s new parchment craft book of designs is available from February. This 48 page book contains 21 beautiful designs, mainly for cards but there is a box design. There is something for everyone, the designs are of flowers, butterflies, cats, dogs and some beautiful birds. I love drawing birds and I was really pleased to see designs with a greenfinch, meadow pipit, sparrow hawk and a yellow wren in this book. The book is aimed at varying levels of experience, some of the designs use multi-grids but as the grid work patterns are included in the back of the book it is probably not essential to rush out and buy the multi-grid if you already own a straight grid. I am going to try the Orange Dahlia pattern, what a fabulous book! I can’t wait to get started.
