Illustration Friday: Sky

This collage of Edmund Dulac's Illustration of the Arabian Nights is my submission for this week's Illustration Friday challenge. I got the free image originally from Dover Publications Edmund Dulac Treasury: 116 Color Illustrations. I printed several copies of it, recolored all of them using watercolor pencils and acrylic ink (this is how the original print looks like). Then I progressively layered the prints to achieve the dimensional look. As befitting an illustration of the Arabian Nights, I embellished the castle with several swarovski crystals! This collage now hangs in my living room, lending an air of magic.

Thanks for visiting.
