Excellent product ! This book is a treasure ! Wonderful images and examples with very clear explanations to understand and try this beautiful art. I'm very happy with my order ! The shop owner was very friendly ! Thanks you so much for the little note, the signature and gift ! Very good quality and very well packaged. Items as described and posted promptly. :)
This is the second silhouette I've had done (one for my wedding the recent one is of my daughter) and I love them so much! This one is perfect because it captures her at this moment in time in a unique way and I'll treasure this. Can't wait to hang it next to my other one!
Kathryn did a wonderful job capturing the silhouettes of my two kindergarten grandchildren. The silhouettes continue what is now a third-generation kindergarten tradition, after kindergarten silhouettes of their parents and grandparents. I bought a set for us and for the parents. Then I made wooden frames for the art. Two of white maple and two of dark walnut. Kathryn finished the work quickly and had her art to us within about a week. And she added a couple of bonuses. She may surprise you, too. So play nice. Bonus or no bonus, we should play nice.
When I opened the envelope, I was brought to tears! Kathryn captured my girls perfectly and the quality of her work is impeccable! These are beautiful and I love that I got three prints for each girl so that I can give them to the grandparents. I love these and will have them forever.
