Story illustrations

As a fun little project I decided to let the girls recreate a scene from our homeschool book "Om-Kas-Toe". I used my Sizzix dies to make doll bodies, clothing, hair, "bushes" (leaves), and a bird that's supposed to be a Raven.

Danya and Gloria really enjoyed each making the scene where the Indian boy's pet Raven finds the missing baby in the bushes. I'd like to do more of these, but the most recent scene from one of our books, "Walk the World's Rim" is of a large black man vomiting after drinking a strange Indian tea. I'm not sure I'd want to hang that picture on our wall.
