Oh my...the challenge! Such gorgeous work. I can't show Karen's first page, she wants it to be a secret but here is my page for her book.
Lynette's book was started on Yupo paper, and Karen continued that medium. I didn't have any, so used rice paper, which was then too floppy to attach - I had to mount it on watercolor paper. So it's a bit thick compared to their lovely delicate work. I brayered color onto the rice paper, and then stenciled colored light molding past for the flowers. The butterflys came from some vellum envelopes that I have and the boy figure from some victorian cutouts that I had.
This is FUN. I'm finding that I am being pretty free in style and using items that I would normally not use. I can't wait until the next one shows up! Both of these are off to Suki today.
