Let's peel back these layers!

juliannlaw Here is a closeup of the endpapers in my debut picture book, THE WORKD’S LONGEST SOCK. I work digitally in Adobe Photoshop but the program doesn’t do it all for me! I knit all the pixels by hand! Haha! I do have things I do to help me work quickly and efficiently, though, like using layers. Here you get to see me take off those layers one by one till we are back at nothing but a background. The World's Longest Sock is now available on  Amazon ,  Barnes and Noble ,  Target , or wherever you  buy books !

little red riding hood

(The pic above shows Lucy holding up the costume parade at preschool while she stops to admire herself in the mirror. . .)
I used one of her little summer dresses for the pattern but added the pockets just for fun. I thought it needed something. . . I was having a little Project Runway moment.I followed these instructions for making her little cloak, but smaller of course. I found trim at a little shop here in Salt Lake called The Lace Place which specializes ribbons, bows and lace.
And for some inexplicable reason, when I went to photograph the dress this morning, there was birdseed in the pocket. Maybe our Little Red Riding Hood has actually been out in the woods. . .
