The Little Book of Holiday Fun has arrived.
My new book is ready to buy at the Susse Shop. For along time I have always wanted to create a book with my illustrations. It's quite a daunting project to do as I have had no previous experience in this field before.
However over this summer I took a course with Design Garden Classes
The course was full of many helpful tips and one of them was planning and book maps a very useful tool you can apply to planning out a book. The course had many inspiring illustrators talking about their practise as Picture book illustrators.
So I took inspiration for the course and came up with my own book entitled The Little book of Holiday fun.
This book is full of four fun paper-making projects to celebrate the holidays. You can use the book directly and cut out all the projects.
1. Make Holiday Garland
2. Make Holiday Gift Tags
3. Make Fairy Table Place Names
4. Danish Paper Hearts
Patterned papers to use for other paper making projects.
Or you can choose to scan pages and then print out onto card or paper with a printer. In this book you will find fun decorations and gift wrapping ideas to share with friends and family.
I took inspiration from my Danish Grandmother. I have many happy childhood memories preparing for Christmas. with my Grandmother. Spending cosy winter nights learning how to make Danish Christmas decorations, sweets and cakes.
I hope this book makes a great gift for all the family to enjoy.
