Last Enchantment Altered Book Page - The Oak Tree Roots
This page came about as I came across a delightful German fairy tale book called The Story of the Root Children by Sybille Von Olfers. The Root Children live underground in the roots of tall trees and are woken up each Spring by Mother Earth. They set about making new clothes for the flowers and painting the beetles and ladybirds in their bright colours. They spend all summer dancing and playing in the fields before returning to their underground homes at the onset of winter.
The oak tree is a new stamp from Sheena Douglass, as is the word stamp and saying on the bottom of the page. The tree roots are a texture stamp from Lavinia Stamps. The page has been coloured with Derwent Inktense pencils and the oak tree foliage is Aged Green embossing enamel by Stampendous. The two smiling children in their earth bed were drawn by yours truly.
Thank you for visiting and do feel free to leave a comment. I appreciate every one.
