If you have been wondering where the inspiration for my latest project came from, look no further. Recently Kyla and I got out a beautiful little book by Stephen Michael King, called Leaf.
Kyla, who has always struggled with the written word, fell in love with this simple, wordless book, and was inspired to make her own. She always felt like books had to be full of words, and this discovery was very exciting.
So I brought some good materials, and she got to work. She spent four days, just doing page after page, then hit the wall, and didn't do anything further for a couple of weeks. When I picked up the paints and started mucking around it seemed to rekindle her imagination and desire, and she got back to work. Inspiration went full circle.
She had researched what the birds looked like, and their eggs.
This weekend she finished it, and it looked amazing. I was really pround of her. I went and got some heavy duty card and bookbinding tape, and fixed it all together.
