Fun book spreads



Here is a photo of one of the spreads I did recently for a group I am in. The directive was to work only in the margins so that the text was still visible. I tried to illustrate the little poem. The book was, A Child's Garden of Verses by Robert Louis Stevenson, a gem of a book. Some of the other work was gorgeous as well. Now I am scouting for a similar book that I can do the same to...

The above picture illustrates "Happy Thought" which I love... It is, "The world is so full of a number of things, I'm sure we should all be as happy as kings." I love that little piece.




And here are 3 pages that illustrate the same story about a little girl... well, I'll let you go ahead and read for yourselves ;)

So cute. A lovely way to bring life to old books. I may go charity shopping and do just this.

Hi Gena,

The illustrations are beautiful. They are so fairy-like and imaginative. Loved them.
