I'm being a chunky monkey again and working on altering more chunky books. This one is for a one-to-one swap. I am quite pleased with the way it turned out. It was originally a "real" childrens chunky board book.
Well, let me tell you in advance that it's not the type of project that I consider easy. You have to have alot of patience to sand the pages to get rid of the gloss. Then, you have to sometimes put several layers of paint down (letting it dry between coats) to get it lookin' like a "fresh, new pallet". I'm just sayin' this in case you see this and say, "hey, I'm gonna do this today" and then wonder why it looks like chunky monkey ice-cream if you skip steps one and two (sanding and priming).
It's super fun and rewarding though and each page is sort of like it's own little canvas. I am not quite sure what theme I will chose for this (although I'm leaning towards an "alice in wonderland" sort of theme).
To see more what a finished version of one of my chunky's looks like, just click on the pic and it will take you to my chunky book album on flickr. I will try to post more links on these fun little books tomorrow.
P.S. What I meant in my last post about posting more often is that I want to make more time for it because I EnjoY it. It's fun for me to share what I'm making in hopes that you will want to make something too. There is safety in numbers. I love to create something everday. It makes me happy. xo lia
