Love this Laura! The red door reminds me of a wonderful seaside town I went to called Cambria. On the side of a hill going towards the more touristy district, someone put a red door all by itself! It was very cool. This drawing reminds me of that fun trip :)

I love the soft texture of the colored pencils. The subtly patterns in the earth are really lovely! Let's all float away!

thank you everyone - i was hoping to achieve the things you all mentioned!

Tanya, thanks for the banner feedback and yes digital collage: scanned my vintage papers, piece of lace and a button, button was then digitally *sewn* on and text was added on top.

Ooh, I love this piece, especially the flower and the "textures" on the earth. It's lovely!

Gravity is overrated. The coolest thing I can think of is that some astronomers believe that all the carbon in Jupiter's atmosphere has sunk down to it's core (it's a gas giant, remember) making the center of Jupiter possibly a diamond the size of the earth.
