A few years ago I made this for my daughter, Acadian Driftwood.

She is a Beatles and HP fan.
Each page has an ATC and altered lyrics. She had to figure out which Beatles song it represented. (can YOU?)   All songs are based on the books.

For a Christmas present, I presented the book with only the first page in it. Each month after that for the upcoming year, I mailed her another page. At the end of the year, it was complete.

So here we go, beginning with January, and all months thereafter.....


pen and ink and watercolor


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


embroidery



----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


pen, ink, watercolor matryoshka voldemort






------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

burned parchment, pen and ink



----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


marker and colored pencil


----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

stippling



---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

the lemon is showed because the card when it arrived at my daughter's house, was seemingly blank. I had written in lemon juice and when she put it in her toaster oven, the words emerged.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


acrylic



-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



marker

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

binding is vine, cut and paste words and pics from various books.






------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


colored pencil. real feathers, real slate.



------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


pen n ink n watercolor






thanks for looking!!

I did the next year based on the All Creatures Great and Small Series, also Beatles songs.

When I did a preview, I saw that many lyrics are hard to see. Small. If you go to my photo hosting page on this site, I wonder if they can be seen bigger?

I would love to see the All Creatures Great and Small version as well!

Yay I'm so glad you posted this! Receiving it each month was so special, and had me singing each song with the new lyrics. Such an incredible gift. <3

This is truly epic! Not only are the ATC's small masterpieces (I am in love with several especially  the embroidery and matryoshka Voldemort) but to have the creative capacity to change the lyrics so eloquently to fit the subject is really remarkable. BRAVO!
