Transparent Window Scenes Through the Year
'Humans experience great joy in colours. The eye needs them as it needs the light.' - J.W. Goethe
Beautiful tissue-paper window scenes are a lovely way to bring colour and light into a home or classroom. This book has full instructions and templates for making a range of striking window transparencies which capture the mood of the seasons: yellow daffodils for spring, a red sailing boat for summer, orange leaves in autumn, a blue sled for a snowy winter.
Children will love seeing the transformation when colours are layered and the light falls through them. The projects in this book will support both beginners and experts in developing cutting and layering skills, and spark the imagination for future experimentation.
