Over in the Meadow - Part 2

I spent some time today experimenting with styles for the Counting Book (see yesterday's post). I've discovered that I can photograph the origami "babies," and, using Photoshop Elements, paste them onto my background as many times as necessary. That means I won't have to make TEN frogs.

Here's a rough draft of pages one and two. By the way -- those are the toads, not the frogs. The toad isn't that difficult, but the frog is a bear! (How can a frog be a bear?)

You can click on the picture, to see it a little larger.

That's such a cute idea, Linda! Is there no end to your creativity? Clara is a lucky girl.

Well, from my perspective, Grandma is a lucky grandma! :-)

I'm having a lot of fun with this one. But . . . have you ever seen a pattern for an origami muskrat? Ha! I may have to settle for a plain ole' RAT.

Your books for Sweetpea are the most wonderful thing and a wonderful keepsake.
