The Digit-al Dozen Does Books: The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein
Hey guys! Its time for the most challenging week of my month again... Digit-al Dozen week! I love that the amazing artists in this group force me to push myself so much each month. This month we are doing a theme that I am actually really excited about since I'm the one who chose it! :)
Our theme is books! I am an avid reader, and always have been. I knew this would be awesome to channel into nail art.
My first mani is based on a book called The Giving Tree, by Shel Silverstein. This was one of my favorite books as a child. I've recreated the cover art on my nails. Here is a picture of the cover:
The base for this mani is Essie Mojito Madness. The leaves/tree trunk/boy's shirt are a blend of MM and China Glaze Holly-day. The red is Zoya Sooki, and the black and white are my Barry M Nail Art Pens. Everything was done freehand, as I seem to be doing most of the time these days!
Have you read this book? Did you like it?
Don't forget to see what the rest of my creative friends have come up with, and check back to see what other book-inspired manis I will have this week!
