Every parent and possibly every grandparent owns refrigerator art. You know, those much-loved drawings by the much-loved children in our lives. The question is: What do you do with the art once the “exhibit” is over? Artist and bookmaker Vera Greenwood has an answer: Make a book.
Vera did just that for friends of hers whose children, Jack and Alice, are budding artists. She made books filled with the childrens’ art as Christmas gifts for Jack and Alice’s grandparents (Shhh! Don’t tell.) and Vera tells us it was an easy project to do.
First she scanned the kids’ drawings, keeping the resolution at 300 dpi. After that, Vera says it took just a few afternoons to make the books with Blurb BookSmart™.
Here’s a shout out to you, Vera. Nice work! Here’s to encouraging art at an early stage and creating a keepsake that will stick around – and be treasured – long after the refrigerator gallery has changed shows.
