Cinderella Books, Which Makes Me the Fairy Godmother

So, I've done a few more books since my last post. I finished the two that I had bought specifically to paint on and so I looked around at my own books thinking... "hmmm" and found a few that needed a little sprucing up. I am very happy with the results and have a bunch of ideas for more of them. I have a few books from the early 1900's and really like the color designs embossed onto the covers. I also saw one the other day that had the cover illustrated in just gold so there are many avenues to explore. Tell me what you think. Maybe I should do a workshop? Think anyone would sign up?

This is really cool, Parrish. I never heard or thought of this before.

Thanks Kaia. I was just admiring some beautiful old books and thought it would be fun to try and make some of my own. I also seem to be attracted to painting on unusual surfaces. =)I like your art by the way, very fun.
