All Three Finished

I just love the way they look standing up like this. So colorful.

I think he will like it.






She will too.







Well, what fun I have had making these. They will be on their way tomorrow. Just in time.
More later,

  3. All three of them look great standing next to each other. What lovely gifts. Can I ask....what type of paint do you use?

  4. Stegart, the paint on the pages inside the book is just various brands of inexpensive acrylic paint. You know the little bottles that have squirt tops.
    On the cover art I use heavy body Goldens. I gesso the cover before painting. But not the pages.
    Thanks everybody for coming to see and say so.
