Sunday inspiration

Happy Sunday, friends. ☺

Today's inspiration is unlike any I've ever seen. This video features the work of Lorenzo Durán, an artist who transforms fallen leaves into amazing and extremely delicate works of art. His creations are absolutely beautiful—and so very fragile. I can't even imagine the patience and dexterity it must take to create them. You can find out more about Durán and see additional examples of his work at his Web site, found here. Enjoy!



Wishing you all a creative and inspirational Sunday. ☺

  10. Very smart... Usually I love stepping on crunchy leaves but I would never dare to on a crafted one like that. Beautiful.

  13. You always find the coolest things to share Dana! Wow, I didn't realize that a leaf would even have the possibility to be "carved" like these designs. Loved the butterfly one! Hope you had a good weekend Dana!

  20. That is amazing!

    I recently posted about a children's book about paper cutting. This certainly takes that art to another dimension. Wow. :-)

  21. I would be scared to make something so fragile! With my luck (if I had any artistic talent), I would have one last thing to do to make it perfect, and totally destroy it.
