Classic Treasury Princess Tales

Here is something new I have been working on. I illustrated two small vignettes on The Brothers Grimm fairy tale 'The Frog Prince' for Miles Kelly's 'Classic Tales Princess Treasury'. 
Both are painted in acrylics.
I also painted five backgrounds (for text to be placed over), in a water colour effect which has lots of drips and splashes! I wanted to create a soft 'fairy-like' and pretty look to them.
And five 'ribbon' borders which will also frame the text. The ribbon borders have soft 'confetti' teeny tiny shapes around them. So sweet :)

I Love Cats

I recently rescued five beautiful kittens (about 2 weeks old. 3 boys and 2 girls) which were found in a cardboard box without their mummy. I became foster mum for a few hours and brought them home to be fed and kept warm before they were taken to be nursed and re-homed by the RSPCA. 
Yes, I cried :(

 I hope they all find good homes filled with love. <3
Bless these sweet little babies.
