Miniature book of sign language
Well I made a miniature book for my sister and I loved it, the picture was of the last supper and I had Jesus exactly in the spine of the book and it looked so cute on the shelf that I decided to make an other one and since I'm trying to learn the sign language alphabet I thought I'd do the pictures in a book =D Also this is my first project I posted here ^^
