storybook - building a snowman

original sketch in watercolour - later cp was added to intensify areas

I've made several books for my grandson (now aged 2). This is from one I did for Christmas - and we had a white Christmas so the timing was perfect

I did the illustrations by hand in pencil, watercolour and coloured pencil, scanned them and then added the borders with Photoshop, taking the images into Publisher to finally put the book together and add text.

you can see a slideshow of the pages here

oh - and the snowflakes that scatter the pages in the final book were cut out in an online programme and the text is done with a programme online that made a font from your handwriting.
