Camo's Journey, Paige's second self-illustrated children's book, tells the inspirational story of Camo, a little gecko on a big mission to save a land from darkness. On the way he learns that sometimes we have to put aside our fears and take a leap of faith and use the gifts God has given us.
"Children (and adults, too) will be inspired by Camo's courage and determination to spread the Light in a dark land. And, I believe readers will be challenged to let their own lights shine in a world that so desperately needs God. This is a must-read!"—Michelle Medlock Adams, Award-winning & Best-selling Author
Sofia and Her Morningstar
Paige's first self-illustrated children's book, Sofia and her Morningstar, tells the story of a lovely young flower with a wish to see the world. She discovers the beauty of God's creation with her new friend, Morningstar, a butterfly, who agrees to take her on the adventure of a lifetime.
"May I suggest you read this remarkable little book very slowly, and with every turn of the page, picture the author and artist. You will then see why I think Paige Snedeker is a true treasure in Christ's Kingdom!"—Joni Eareckson Tada, Joni and Friends International Disability Center
HOW WERE THE ILLUSTRATIONS DONE?
With Paige’s interpreter, she described each scene in detail, while her art teacher, Sue Anderson, captured them in line sketches. Often, this took several different compositions before Paige was ready to paint.
On a paper held in front of her, she painted with a brush clenched in between her teeth. Paige used watercolors, acrylics, balloons, sponges and dry brush techniques to create her artwork. Her interpreter relayed her color choices to put together over 200 pages of textured papers that would become animals, plants, rivers and sunny skies.
After the artwork had been laid out and painted, the collages came together. Each piece had to be carefully cut and taped into place so that Paige could make final adjustments to the designs. Each page took as many as 20 hours from start to finish.
