CRAZY CREATURE CHUNKY BOOK


The first chunky book I have hosted. Not the last. I have plans to start 3 more very soon! On the tag to the right is a hand carved stamp I created for this book. The eye is suppose to resemble my, "one eyed, one horned, flying purple people eater". I wanted to post every one's page on this site but it turns out I'm not that good at blogging so I'll just stick with a few of my own. Below is the front of my 4x4 page.


I used pencil to sketch the image on paper then I went over it with pen. Next I used watercolor pencils and then added water to blend the colors. After I got the image all done I took the 4x4 page to Kinko's and copied it 20 times. I glued the front and back covers together with purple fibers between them. Whew! Lots of work! I was so impressed with some of the participants work! The time and creativity were amazing and inspiring!
