Is this a desperate attempt at meeting the prompt this week? An illiteration with the letter "S"? I chose to do another paper piece with some striped paper. Seven Swans a Swimming Soaking in Striped life Savers. I'm paper illustrating the 12 days of Christmas as the season is almost here for such artistic folly. This was my take on the swan part to that long, long song.

|"Stay"-paper collage illustration|
Having first considered the word 'stay' with its most obvious definition, it occurred to me that there is a word you don't hear much anymore using 'stay' as in 'stays' as in those that are used to support the corset. So, my illustration for this week's challenge is working off the corset stay and I through in the Stay the Night after I saw the outcome of my piece.

I design gift wrapping paper and children's illustrations so this is what I thought of when I saw this week's theme of "launch". Never one to care for heights or daring acts of bravery, I have never been personally launched. I try to imagine what it would be like to take off in the shuttle and see how high you're going. I have a hard time imagining the heights we reach flying and then of course the fear sets in of falling from this height! It still remains quite a remarkable human feat to have designed something to launch into space and land up there. Not for me though!

An old photo found after a storm where the windows had been blown open and the shutters knocked together loudly as if they, too, were angry. It lay tattered in a puddle, damaged almost beyond recognition. Who was here just before the heavens opened? Who lost their hat as it blew into the graveyard and their hair blinded them as they stumbled? Warning signs; 'do not enter'.
