Review:

This follow up to Outside the Lines, continues with more great art from some amazing artists!

As you can see, the collection ranges from graphics to modern art, to simple prints to accessorize like crazy, to more complex prints that bed for fine art materials and framing! Many of them would make lovely Christmas or birthday presents- they would be gifts that always remind the user of your talent and kindness!

Once again the prints are on sturdy, easy to teat out sheets with the artist and art info on the back, so you know where the original art came from.

Here is a sample that I made up for Miss Grace's room to surprise her!

As you can see, the paper takes marker ink very well, even for blending! And there was plenty of room to add the unicorn horn. The only thing that didn't show in the picture was the glitter on the unicorn's body!

This is such a fun book for both giving and keeping! Now that the kids are back in school, it will help you bring out your inner artist! Or you can include it with art supplies for a great Christmas gift for your little artist!
