Hi everyone, hope you had a good weekend! I have a board book to share today with a summer theme of things Tilda and Edwin do in the holidays :).
The cover: Tilda is exploring and checking on the bug life.
Picking some strawberries.
Tiding her horse in the countryside.
Picking some flowers.
A day at the beach.
The board book is a Woodware 6 x 6 scalloped mini album which I've taken apart so that I have another three pages to make another some time. I was going for a more illustrative painted style for the backgrounds on these images as you would see in a children's book with a flatter look to them.
All the pages are painted with DecoArt paints over some texture paste. The texture paste is highlighted afterwards with black paint and there's black and white pen doodling around the edges. The flowers are Magnolia DooHickey Daisy dies which have been cut from watercolour card and painted with watercolours as are all the images. I added faux stitching, cut up words in the thought bubble DooHickey die cuts and doodling with a fine nibbed black pen. The book rings which were originally silver were coloured with black alcohol ink.
Thanks as always for your lovely comments and enjoy your day. :)
