Inspired by vintage childrens reading books, I designed these prints to reflect that design style. N is for nest.
B is for bird.
F is for flower.
R is for rooster.

Inspired by one of Sue's books, I used the wooden frames that used to hold the head of a tennis racket and made them into picture frames.  I painted them black and then put in glass (I cut the corners off to make room for the screws) added a print I designed, put in a piece of chip board for backing and screwed the layers together.  I then added eye hooks and picture wire so that it could be hung.  I think it also looks great just propped up on a shelf.
