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!

"All girls are! Even if they live in tiny old attics, even if they dress in rags, even if they aren't pretty, or smart or young, they're still princesses - all of us!

I just love hearing your process.

And thinking of rescue: a few years back I visited a very dear friend while I was having a very hard time and she rescued me with her very wise words and comfort xo

I would know your work and your heart anywhere ...

Terrific image and paper cutting! Though I admit, I thought maybe this time the princess was coming as the rescuer herself!


So cool! The subtle dimension is really awesome and coloration is fantastic! May I ask, what did you use for color?

Cindy, thank you! the funny thing is I kind of worded this incorrectly because she rescues herself ;)
