Illustration Friday - "Discovery"



















moleskine, 'inchies', watercolor, colored pencil, japanese chiyogami paper

Okay so a bit of a stretch for discovery but it was a discovery for me recently when I came across a long forgotten stash of these lovely handmade papers! I've been creating 'inchies' for about a month now and I just love them - so fun and somewhat addicting :) Anyhow I cut the papers up into one inch squares and they looked like little presents and for some reason I thought of them tumbling into a big sack. Actually I've been working on a Christmas card line so maybe that's where I made the connection?!
