Book Review: The Crafter’s Design Library Fairies by Sharon Bennett

A brilliant collection of motifs and ideas which are perfect for crafters looking for images which encapsulate traditional images of fairyland.

On offer are seasonal fairies, trolls & ogres, pixies, animal fairies, manga fairies, floral fairies, sprites and elves, party fairies to name but a few.

There are loads of ideas which people can copy or use as a basis for their own concepts. Easily traceable, the motifs are clearly drawn and can be used in as much or as little detail as you want.

Also included is an illustrated guide to using the motifs in a variety of ways on cards, gifts, needlework, ceramic plates and glassware.

Some of the ideas are quite unusual such as the technique of reversing out which can be done by hand or by computer. This is a book which will make a wonderful present for anyone keen on drawing or craftwork.

Inventive, imaginative and creative; it is not to be missed.
