a little sneak peek.

Here’s the cover for Pearl and the Whale and a few sample pages I’ve been working on. (!!!)

Can’t wait to share more…

This last photo (zoom in on it — can you find Earth?) will be a full spread in the book. Our one and only, gorgeous Solar System TO SCALE (even distances apart from the planets). Look how TINY Mercury is compared to the Sun. Even Jupiter, our neighborhood Giant is so small… it’s all about PERSPECTIVE, isn’t it?

BEHIND THE SCENES.

Here are a few shots that Bethany somehow managed to fit in along with all the others! So Grateful she did because it really shows the scale of these little needle-felted things.

I kept trying to fluff the Sun’s solar “hair/flares”. And the Sun kept spinning the wrong way. A problem since I’d only needle-felted one side of it yellow. An air vent right above the setup kept blowing everything around.  I’d say something like, “I need to turn Jupiter around again.”

To get the sea waves? Blue transparency cutouts and plexi.

Teensy needle-felted lighthouse. And an even tinier whale on the “ocean”.

Hubby’s microphone stands came in super handy for holding up little felted clouds and planes and such. From far away it looks like I made a very odd Earth hat. (Although I’m sure someone somewhere would probably wear it.)

Took A LOT of coffee to make this little book.

A LOT. No cream, no sugar. 🙂
