Fun With Fables #3

  Garfie The Cat & Evangeline The Mouse
Paper mache, clay  fabrics, haberdashery, vintage papers, embroidery, 
sewing & collage

I came across Vanessa Cabban's work on pinterest recently and immediately fell in love with her papier mache sculptures. An artist and an illustrator, Vanessa has worked on over 25 children's books and exhibits and sells her paintings and prints in galleries around the UK. International readers will be delighted to know that she also has an etsy shop, where you will occasionally find some of her beautiful papier mache creatures for sale.
Needless to say, Vanessa's sculptures are handmade with love and would make beautiful heirloom pieces. How pretty Garfie The Cat and Evangeline The Mouse would look in a nursery or child's room! 
J'aime !
