Sophia is going through a very difficult time right now. She and her father need our prayers. While she is away, Heather at Rose Hill Designs is hosting Sunday Sketches.
I’m showing off the Junk Mail Book that I made in Carla Sonheim’s Summer Camp. I really loved the puzzle like aspect of this book; how each picture that overlapped a page had to morph into something else on another page. I hope you have time to click for enlargements to see how it all works together.
See how the mouse on the cover morphs into the winged creature on the next spread? And the head of the creature at the top becomes a sea creature, then a submarine and later a little house.
The horns of the cow become the ears of the own and part of the cows nose becomes a wing tip.
Those fish tails will become lizard feet and one leg of the starfish will become an insect and then a rabbit ear.
The goblins hair came from the cow. The ziggy guy is drawn partially on the clear envelope plastic so he shows on both sides of the page.
One of those trees will become a bird’s beak and the bald guy will become a rabbit!
I really loved working on this and I know I’ll do more this way. The junk mail is covered in gesso and then watercolor and the pictures are drawn in permanent marker. Happy Sunday Sketches!
