I used to take old Readers Digest Condensed Books (dime a dozen) and use stiffener on the pages to form them and then paint on the open page. Sometimes decoupage a poem next to it. They sold quite well.
Again, totally amazing how you manage to get these wildlife pics, Brian (especially this last one). Over here, I only see big fat brown millipedes across the walking trail, or pigeons on the house across the street. OK, sometimes I'll see a coyote or hawk or jack rabbit, but more often its only a cottontail bunny or roadrunner. Whatever is see though, is usually too quick to get a good picture of....
How cool is this?? I'd love to see it. Great shots!A couple of weeks ago I had a lovely week away from home in Cornwall, a 550 mile drive to the southwest. My brother lives down there, we reconnected at my wedding in March so we thought we'd drop in.
I didn't take many pics except for at one of my favourite places: the Eden Project. It's a former china clay pit that now has the world's largest greenhouses, one of which houses a rainforest and one a Mediterranean environment. So many plants.
