A warm welcome to my new followers, thank you for finding my blog!
Last week I enjoyed watching the film "Inkheart", after the book of the German author Cornelia Funke. I read her book a couple of years ago and was impressed and enchanted by her writing skills. She has been the inspiration to my Christmas book. For those of you who are not familiar with the story: it's about a young girl whose father has the ability to read characters out of their books and bring them to life. One day he 'frees' villains by reading out loud, but at the same time his wife disappears into the book! An exciting fantasy story! My Santa came out of his storybook, too ;-) Papers used are My Mind's Eye, Santa is another gorgeous drawing by Phee Mc Faddell and is coloured with distress inks.
Enkele details - Some details:
De voorkant van het boek, de kerstman is een stempel van het Kruidvat - The front of the book, Santa is a stamp of Kruidvat (Dutch drugstore):
