Round Robin - My Favorite Book

My layout for Lisa M's book:


A Tree Grows in Brooklyn
by Betty Smith

The delight of this piece was how I first envisioned it in my head, sketched it on a scrap, and then watched it develop into reality on the page.   It was so different for me to work on a piece knowing the outcome from the start.  Usually there is a starting point with no definite destination in mind, just stopping when it looks done--the old flying-by-the-seat-of-my-pants method.

That is a perfect interpretation of the book. I think it is beautiful and especially love the way you added the leaves to the shadow of the tree! Fabulous!

This layout makes me want to read that book again! Great quotes and, like Cindy said, the leaves on the shadow of the tree are haunting and hopeful at the same time!

Can't wait for it to get here!
