I’m so incredibly smitten with the gorgeous details in these miniature birds by Nayan & Vaishali. Using hand cut & hand painted layered paper, they create colorful and charming little birds that will easily fit in the palm of your hand. the blue and green European Magpie in the first image is my favorite!

There’s something about these beautiful, rich illustrations by artist Stacey Elaine that I can’t seem to keep my eyes away from. So rich of colors and details.. Such a soft, friendly and festive character.. love!
Stacey Elaine creates highly detailed, hand cut illustrations with layers of tissue paper which she carefully applies and seals onto heavy hot press watercolor paper. I’m drawn to the bold contrast between the saturated colors of the tissue paper and the bright white background upon which they are adhered. Although Stacey has a background in the art world, it wasn’t until she became a mother that she felt a strong need to pursue her passion, which was when she started creating these precious paper made pieces.
We’re starting off the week with a selection of weird and wonderful illustrations by artist Linda Jäderberg. I’ve been a fan of Linda’s work for quite some time and love every single silly creature she creates! It’s her animals with human bodies that I like the most. And though they may be a bit out of the ordinary, all of them the look so fun and friendly that I would just looove to meet them <3
Based in Tel Aviv, Israel, illustrator and pattern designer Tamar Dovrat loves to experiment with different colors and techniques. This leads her to create beautiful, whimsical imagery that is diverse and in which her love for nature stands out. Besides gouache paintings, Tamar also creates risograph prints, which is a process similar to silk screening. I love the the soft, grainy texture this leaves in the colors of her work. The piece with the long crocodile is my favorite!
Please excuse the image overload in today’s colorful Sunday post. But it was really hard to share only few out of the countless rich and dazzling works by artist Este Macleod. Aren’t these gorgeous?! Strongly inspired by flora and fauna, each of Este’s work is filled with countless colorful details that together become exciting and harmonious paintings. Love!
Now here’s a fun way of having your dog, cat, bird, brother, mother or entire family captured in a precious piece of art: custom portraits on pendants by Nicomade. Aren’t these the cutest? And you’ll even be able to carry them around wherever you go! I’d get me a bulldog just so that I can have them made on one of Nico’s pendants. No, I won’t do that of course, but he’s my favorite of the bunch!
