Here's a little show and tell of what I've been working on recently. This is a proper look at the sneak peek I posted last week. This was an 'A-Z of Blooms', a multi-layered book that shows where in the world 26 different flowers come from, and a little fact about each flower under the corresponding flap. I painted each flower with watercolours and then layered them to form the countries around the world to demonstrate where the flowers grow. Despite the project taking a whole heap longer than I'd originally anticipated, it was nice to combine maps and flowers together - two of my favourite things!
