Every Picture Tells a Story-CCG Challenge 207

The Challenge this week reminded me of the day I took these photos of my DGDs. I took inspiration of the CCG photo for the idea of the piles of books stacked on the shelves.
I drew some books in black ink, directly onto the background, which was my white colour, making more drawn books in the colours of the combo plus more ink drawn ones. I cut these out and added them to the LO with ds foam tape, adding movement by stacking them lopsidedly. The doily was sprayed with Dylusions spray inks to get the right colour and pages were added from an old english/russian dictionary I bought for a £1. I filled the pages of some mini books too, adding a title to the largest one. I had loads of fun with this, you can see the challenge at
Thank you so much for looking and leaving me your words.
