First off, this book is different then most since it has every image twice. So in the flip through I only show you the first half, the second is identical. The idea behind this is that you can try different approaches or give the second page to a friend. There are also tips in the beginning and every page is titled as well.
All the images are of faeries, I specially love the sleepy spring one, it’s the sweetest image I’ve seen in a while.
The detail of these varies, some are less detailed, some are way more intricate.
The images are all on one side so you can use markers but do put a sheet of paper underneath the page to protect the next page. This paper is too thin for water. You should also be careful when burnishing, it can’t take a lot of beating.
The paper is the part I didn’t particularly care for, it’s thin like most indies but it has a bit of an annoying texture to it, if you have the first Inklings by Tanya Bond, you’ll probably know what I mean. I would trade in the second set of pictures for heavier cardstock paper happily.
I chose my picture because of the wings, I’ve never done faerie wings and I wanted to try.

Example picture:
Colored with Faber-Castell Polychromos and a bit of white Posca

Overall it’s definitely something you should check out if you’re a faerie book lover, it would be right up your alley for sure!
