Here are some inspirational images from The Beautiful Crafts Book published by Sterling Publishing in 1976. I don't know if I would call this stuff beautiful but it is definitely colorful and jumping with interesting patterns.
I especially love the black and white versions of the designs; they are all so intricate.
Aren't these birdies the cutest? Tree ornaments for all year long :)
Love the hedgehog!
Great blackline drawings.
