Spring flower sketch- Birthday Card inspired from Book illustration

I am very proud in sharing this beautiful card made by my 6 year old daughter.

This was inspired by an illustration in the book "The Owl and the Pussy Cat" by Edward Lear and Jan Brett.
Recently, she did an author study on Jan Brett. She came across a lot of Jan Brett's books and was particularly impressed by the illustrations.

Inspired from Jan Brett, she wishes to write books and do the illustrations herself too.

In order to make this lovely card- her first attempt to make something similar from a book,she used

Blank Card
Pencil colors
Book as mentioned above

Personally I thought she will save this card in her treasure box,as she was so excited she could do it so good. In her words- "Almost like the one in the book".She found a better use. She gifted it to one of her best friends.

Always, encourage and inspire your kids to do crafts or sketching or painting. You never know where their imagination takes them.
