Lotta Prints: How to Print with Anything, from Potatoes to Linoleum

by

Lotta Prints: How to Print with Anything, from Potatoes to Linoleum Cover

 

Staff Pick

Another charmer from Lotta Jansdotter, Lotta Prints covers all the details you need to start embellishing your surfaces (fabric, paper, walls, etc.) with a variety of craft processes. I'm a big fan of potato printing, as recipients of my Christmas cards will vouch for. The many fans of Jansdotter's Simple Sewing will recognize and welcome her distinctive bold-and-basic Scandinavian style.

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Stencil leaves on the walls, stamp flowers on wrapping paper, screen-print on a skirt the sky's the limit. Beautiful photographs inspire while step-by-step instructions and illustrations explain the basics.

Plus, Lotta has included eight ready-to-use stencil pages with hand-drawn patterns, so crafters can easily achieve her signature style. Our innovative format, with perforated stencil sheets and a catchall envelope at back, makes this a fantastic resource for any aspiring printer.

Synopsis:

Frog princes, VW buses, and big bad wolvesand#151;these are the sorts of subjects that Heather Ross depicts on the fabrics she designs, which the sewing and quilting communities feverishly collect (with many fabrics going for huge sums on eBay once they sell out at traditional retail outlets). In Heather Ross Prints, a book-and-DVD package, Ross shares reproducible artwork for more than 50 of her most popular prints. She provides step-by-step instructions for 20 craft projects using the prints on the DVDand#151;everything from sea turtle stationery to a shower curtain covered with swirling mermaids. Crafters can use the artwork on the DVD as they wish, printing on fabric, paper, or whatever surface they choose. Plus, Ross teaches her process for designing fabric using Photoshopand#151;a boon to anyone who has ever dreamed of following in her footsteps.
