Illustration Friday: Separated


My illustration for this week is in watercolour but after seeing my girls cutting up magazines at the weekend I thought I'd like a go too, so here I've combined a watercolour painting with a little bit of collage!

Talking of 'my girls'and 'separation' (not for long though, going to see them soon!) my eldest sent me this picture of her with her own little girl getting ready for christmas. A little angel, just like the one below.
Not really.

How fab to combine the water color with collage. Very creative and fun. Awwww, your grand is very sweet and adorable, just like your daughter, who both must take after yourself!! Happy Holidays!

It is interesting to see how you have taken one idea and built on it. It is always good to have a bit of fun.

Fantastic combination, the cat reminds me of Raymond from "Crochet with Raymond" blog!
Lovely photo of two beautiful girls.

Thanks Manon, I took the html code for a snow widget that I found on Google. I tried to copy and paste it here to pass on to you but for some reason it wouldn't save. Just go on to Google and type in 'snow widget for blogger' Hope it works for you! :o)
