Not so Mellow

It's been some time in the works, but the next Rainbow Series book has been completed.

First spread - my love of Vincent van Gogh's work takes over

A nod to Degas' delightful dancers

Rossetti & Klimt

Angels...in just the perfect place

Tiffany stained glass windows, filled with yellow light

van Gogh meets cocktail hour
The sun motif ties the pages together, along with an eclectic collection of quotes about the colour yellow. And because I cannot seem to tone down my colour, the Not So Mellow (yellow) seems the perfect choice for a title.

Some Helpful Hints when altering childrens' board books:

  • Sand the pages thoroughly
  • use masking tape between the pages
  • gesso tape and boards before you begin
  • dust each page with rice flour when completed to keep them from sticking together (that plastic acrylic paint is the dickens for stick-to-itivness!
Above all, have fun!
