Illustration Friday ~ FLYING


For this week's Illustration Friday prompt, I offer a fabric collage with the message "fly away home." I hope that is something my college bound son will remember to do from time to time.

Collage available in my Etsy shop.

Oh so pretty. The heart pops right off the background!
We'll be facing that same college situation next fall, so I know just what you mean.

It is beautiful and a thought that crosses the minds of many who see their first, second or third fly from the nest. Once they leave, however, they often do come back for periods of rest, rejuvenation, and even....
oh yes, .... monetary embellisments.

I love the background on this and the delicate yet strong wings. Those tiny hearts on strings are such a perfect balance to the patchwork. This is a powerful piece. Just Excellent!
