Illustration Friday: Lush




My submission for Illustration Friday's "Lush" theme is a functional piece of art that can hang or sit and it also serves as a little vase or flower holder by way of the chimney. I am going with the origin of Lush from the year 1610, Middle English  LUSCH which means soft and tender :} I am calling this house "Lusch Life" and it is inspired by this song. Have a wonderful Labour Day Weekend and Happy Weekend to all!

Illustration Friday: Rescue

My submission for Illustration Friday's "Rescue" theme is a painted paper sculpture and it is completely created from a piece of Stonehenge paper. It is lovely to start with a simple sheet of paper and turn it into a full colour dimensional image. I also used one pin, glue and a piece of thread. Happy weekend everyone!
The princess was rescued from her tower and she is off to the beach :)
