Illustration Friday : Acrobat


~He flew through the air with the greatest of ease~

I'm always thrilled when I find scrumptious scrapbooking paper to paint on like this wonderful piece from K&Company.
All I did was add my harlequin friend, the flying wonder.

Enjoy the weekend my friends!

  27. How are you my friend?! I've been so out of touch with everyone since my recent move. I'm still playing catch up - i LOVE this, the harlequin pattern is fabulous...

    And you make me want to stock up on some patterned paper, it sure would make bkgds a lot easier, at least for me :)
