Swans. They’ve been on my mind and while I was working out the steps for the flamingo kit a swan turned up. And then another and another. I love them. LOVE them – so I took a ton of photos.
Of course there is a black swan and babies too- a whole family. My first thought was cake toppers and they will be in the shop very soon – ready made and probably kits I think too (sign up here to be notified when they are available).
But there is something else – probably most important of all – they bring me back around to the place I always end up. I think that everything I make has a foot in story but I have not very often explored that as fully or intentionally as I would like to and maybe paper swans are something to experiment with, a good place to play with the idea of illustrations – the setting of a tiny stage.
