a chip off the old block

Congrats to Illustration Friday's newest proud parents Penelope and Colin. To celebrate, I created this party hat out of a...

...wooden children's block and bits of vintage feathers, trims, beads, papers and fabrics. I found these blocks at a yard sale last summer. The nice seller had a very hard time giving them up and hoped that my kids would love the blocks as much as hers had. I felt slightly guilty and didn't mention exactly what I had in mind for those smooth wooden shapes. In addition to the hat above, I'm seeing a plethora of future 3-D mixed media projects. How about you?

June, I love the hat! I love vintage bits and pieces too. I can never get enough of garage sales/thrifting. Your work rocks!

I had a set of those blocks when I was a kid; I know that I wouldn't mind if they were turned into something so fantastic! :) Cheers!
