Withered leaves

Did anyone see this in last weekend's Observer?
They are a few of the works from 'Fashion in Leaves', 
a collection by a 24 year old Malaysian graphic designer called Tang Chiew Ling.
She combines graceful ink drawings with a combination of flowers, 
leaves and decaying organic matter.
 Ling said "I realised withered leaves could be so beautiful.  
It just depends on how people see them."
 All photos taken from Observer - 1 Sept 13

Apologies for poor quality photos!

Inspiring! They are like a grown-up version of Cicely M. Barker's Flower Fairies.

Jane,

These drawings are beautiful! I would have never thought to use flowers, leaves and decaying organic matter as a dressing for the ink drawings. They are absolutely gorgeous.

How are you, little man, and big man doing? Is the weather still nice or is it starting to look like fall there? It is still very warm here...just like summer. We have finally seen the end of what was an extremely wet summer. Total rainfall for the year- to-date is 84 inches of rain! Now that is a lot of water! LOL
