Book and Silhouette Art
Thank you, Brigitte, for your tip!
I find the book birds really cute – and I’m sure that should the situation arise you can also make book fishes ;-)
Book Birds (Von täglichen Helden, alten Buchstaben, neuen Vögeln und dem nicht mehr aufzuhaltenden Frühling…) (German and English)
via: Paper birds tutorial in German and English by Die Raumfee.
I find this a very individual gift: the name of the recipient composed of pictures of the single letters.
You can find the pictures of the single letters in a flickr collection with hundreds of letter pictures.
Also a wonderful idea: to get these wonderful pictures simply print on book pages!
I think it could be fun: to glue stuff onto cardboard, to ink it and to press a sheet of paper onto.
The paragraph where they wrote, that you can use moistened watercolour paper and get some embossed paper was most interesting to me.
I will ;-))
