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.
All of Stacey’s works are created from ideas she has in her mind, without drawing any designs beforehand. This leaves her open to continuously be inspired by shapes, lines, colors, and movement found in nature, to follow her intuition and to enjoy the results of her creative process as they slowly come to life.
