My fantasy book.

I have always wanted to create my own, lets say.. 'Spiderwick Diary' of fantasy creatures. As a christmas present from my mum, I was given this handmade book, covered in Liberty fabric (Of course in my favourite colour!!)
I had some amazing paper with random words on that reminded me of bark so that was the first thing I put in my book, followed by the title/theme of my book.. Hlulumithi which is Zulu meaning "taller than trees".
My next page 'Gossamer forest' describes the setting/habitat of all the creatures that live in it.
The first creature I created was the 'Thorn Spright' whispy fairy like creatures.
My next pages are not quite finished, but I dedicated one of them to my mum. 'Gill Waders' are a water creature that moves quickly only showing a glimpse of their pink leathery fins and a flash of there breathtaking green eyes!

The TV cartoon show that I used to watch when I was little - 'Avata Legend of Aang' -has always been my favourite and has recently been made into a movie. I decided to do a page using the three main characters just changing their names.

I intend on filling my book with many more drawings, items to add more texture ... and maybe a poem or two?

Happy Sunday! Thank you for visiting!

I'm with Yiota here - you are so creative Lucy. Love your drawings and they are so imaginative. Look forward to seeing more in due course. Thanks for visiting my blog - at least with Easter being so late the summer term will be shorter.
