Book Description

Bring back happy memories of your holidays by using paper and knife to create uplifting, joyful landscape scenes from the coast to the countryside. 

Papercutting is a perfect craft for beginners, as you can achieve amazing results with the most basic of materials a pencil, eraser, craft knife or scalpel, a piece of paper and a cutting surface.

Sarah King’s art encapsulates the beauty of the English countryside, particularly the towns and villages around the Kent coast where she lives. Her use of fresh, vibrant colours and delightful compositions evoke memories of happy times, and expert papercrafters as well as those new to papercutting will find the charming, naïve style of Sarah’s work irresistible.

Sarah’s down-to-earth approach to her art makes it enjoyable and accessible to all. In the book she includes sections on choosing your materials and colours, and there is step-by-step guidance through all the basic techniques you need before embarking on the twelve gorgeous projects on the seaside, town life, the wilderness, and more.

About the Author

About Sarah King

Sarah King is a paper cutting artist from Kent, England, whose unusual style of working with layers of coloured paper and card has led to her pieces being shown and sold at exhibitions and galleries across the UK and from her online outlet, Apple Seed Paper Cuts.

A self-taught artist, Sarah has developed her paper landscapes over the last five years, evolving from single-colour silhouette cuts to the full colour pieces you see today.

Based on her learning journey, she has now, for the first time, released a range of engaging templates created from nostalgic memories of childhood holidays and day trips to the British coast and countryside. Ideal for different skill levels, from those new to papercutting to experts keen to try using more colour in their work, each piece is a satisfying project perfect for framing. Sarah encourages readers to experiment, outlining her techniques and sharing tips to make using and choosing colour easier, with helpful information about tools and materials.

She is a member of the Association of British Naïve Artists and the Guild of American Papercutters.

Postcard Reviews

Paper is a big passion of mine and when I saw this book I knew I just had to have a go.

The designs are amazing...I adored the balloon projects.

Sarah King is a master papercrafter and she shares her techniques, giving us a one-on-one tutorial in every aspect of papercutting.

This craft is explained in detail, everything you need to know is all in this book, which includes a guide of what you will need to get started.

The 'templates' are stunning, and simple. but the finished effect of each design is absolutely brilliant.

There is good advice on how to make your own pictures from photographs or by free hand and what I especially loved was that this is a craft that is affordable and doesn't use vast amounts of 'stuff' to create something beautiful.

This is not a craft for children, due to the use of craft knives.. but there is no reason why they cannot share the joy of paper piecing and learning along with you.
