Baseball Card + Comic Book Table





This upcycled kitchen table was a joint project.  My husband was tired of his bulky desk and wanted something more basic.  We took a garage sale find and revamped it using Mod Podge, baseball cards, and comic books.  The baseball cards were a little tricky to work with due to their thickness.  For added protection, a coat of Polyurethane was brushed over the card surface.

Illustration Style



The latest project I've wanted to tackle is a children's book.  It would be a few copies for my family, nothing more.  I really want the illustrations to pop out, but I can't find the right style.  As you can see here, I've tried colored pencils, watercolor, and different Photoshop techniques.  I can't decide what looks the best.  What do you think?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
