The Bookbinder's Daughters by kittyvane The Bookbinder's Daughters by kittyvane
They were bound together for life.

_______

Materials: I've used pretty much everything but the kitchen sink in this. Colouring was done with markers, gel pen and coloured pencils on Bristol board and the dress is cut out from decorative paper. The hair ribbons are bits of some paper ribbon I found and it's all been pasted into an old book (a finnish translation of "Maggie Now" by Betty Smith, printed in '58).
Photo of book taken with my poopy old camera, thus it sucks muchly, still full view please!

For a close up of the faces, go here:

(For some reason I couldn't submit that as a scrap here, so I popped it in Flickr instead.)

I love that you used patterned paper for their dress. And their clean cut lines are wonderful. This is truly an amazing piece.

Hehe, juu-u suomenkielinen kirja tosiaan. Jos en ihan väärin muista, niin se on hankittu pieneltä kirppikseltä Savonlinnassa. :D
