Rosettes, medallions, and sinuous running vines are among the motifs inspired by the decorative arts for these 31 original fashions. The designs adapt ornaments from carpets, textiles, wood carvings, paintings, architecture, jewelry, and other sources. Illustrations are printed on only one side of the perforated pages for easy removal and display. Specially designed for experienced colorists, Ornamental Fashions and other Creative Haven(R) coloring books offer an escape to a world of inspiration and artistic fulfillment.
