My loyal and patient blog followers have watched me watercolor and collage my alphabet book for my new great granddaughter much of the summer up north at the cabin. My daughter had the book published this fall so that I could give it to my granddaughter, Maddy, in October when I was traveling south to FL.
Here we are in northern Illinois on Oct 17.
I also gave her the original pages which my daughter had laminated and bound. You can see the book pages if you scroll on back on the blog.
The book was very personalized...a was for "apple computer" and c was for "California" where she was born, etc. Z was of course for "Zentangle". This is a tad blurry but you can see it better in other blog posts. Here's a child who will know Zentangle from birth!!!
A nice surprise for me too was that my daughter had all the drawings and photos put onto a poster than can be framed. What a neat idea. She used Shutterfly for the book and poster.
I share that you might be aware that you can put your drawings and paintings together is a truly fun way. Christmas is coming!
The book, as you already know, is highly themed to painting...b is for "brush" and w is for "watercolor", etc. I expect her to love art and be an artist too.
And here is a great grandma brag photo of Violet Virginia at 4 mo.
