'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 that capture the mood of the seasons: yellow daffodils for spring, a red sailing boat for summer, orange leaves in autumn, a blue sled for 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 beginner and expert, teachers of parents in developing cutting and layering skills, and sparking children's imaginations.


'This is an inspiring book for those with an artistic nature, and are new to the art form. Several of the pictures are truly inspired and produce spectacular results.'
--Louise Jefferies
