Wind in the Willows

So I think it is time to upload some of the projects I am currently working on...
The first one is a book cover for 'Wind in the Willows' (by Kenneth Grahame)
The deadline to enter designs is 9th April 2013 so I am currently still working on them.
However, I have started. And I have been very productive by collecting bits of vegetation.
I then put these bits of vegetation on light sensitive paper and exposed them.
This is what happened:

So after I created these I scanned them in (which makes putting them on here possible)
And used Photoshop to piece them together:

But this is far too scary for a children's book about toads and moles and badgers.
So then I changed the colouring:
Which will then potentially look like this as a book cover:
But it would be better to include the characters:

And then layer them in Photoshop again:

... Still a working progress!
