inspiration

There is a book on my shelf I absolut adore! The book is called, 'De regenboog'. The rainbow, if you Translate it in english. It's a Russian folk tales book illustrated by Joeri Wasnetsov and published by Radoega, Moskou.

On the left side of each page is a song or a poem printed, very lovely but I've got the book mainly for its illustrations.

liep ons katje naar het plein....

The beautiful illustrations inspire me! I like the style, very suitable to translate into fabric, applique and embroidery, I think.

Prachtig, zeer inspirerend! Ik ben dol op dit soort boeken. Ik heb zelf een paar boekjes van Elsa Beskow, de teksten zijn een beetje ouderwets misschien voor de kindertjes van nu (alhoewel ze het bij mij nog steeds prachtig vinden om er uit voor gelezen te worden!), maar de tekeningen zijn zo ontzettend lief, daar kun je naar blijven kijken!
Hele fijne feestdagen gewenst, groetjes Elly

I like the small cild walking in the woods. That would make a great applique wall hanging for the season.

Those illustrations are wonderful. I can see them easily translated into an applique and embroidery project.

Merry Christmas to you!

Those are darling - thank you for sharing! I love children's book illustrations. I agree - they're very inspiring. Especially ones from other countries. They tend to have a style that I don't see every day.
