This week I managed to complete two of my light boxes. I find this part really exciting because I never really know what the end result will be until they are actually done.
I also started working on two new projects, but both of them are in the very beginning stages. I will most likely begin work on another light box as well. I’m trying to cram in as much work, because once the baby comes (I’m due in six weeks) I won’t have much time to do anything.
Keep reading to learn more about the finished and new projects below.

Little Miguel came from a family of pirates. He knew since he was a tiny baby that he was destined to be a pirate too and he would one day go explore Mermaid Land.
Mermaid Land was a mystical land that claimed the lives of many. Most people who dared go, were never to be heard of again. But many brave individuals still kept going, because whomever captured a mermaid and proved their existence, was destined for fame and wealth.
Miguel did not care for either fame or wealth. More than anything, Miguel wanted to go there and find his father and older sister who had disappeared on their journey to Mermaid Land only a year ago.
Against his mother’s wishes, he managed to escape one night and set sail on his tiny sailboat.
But things did not go as planned.
After completing the April Art Challenge, I realized how much I enjoy participating in different challenges and contests.
The best part of participating is the large amount of growth I see in my work in just a matter of weeks. By forcing myself to create more in a shorter time span, I am faced with lots of roadblocks that I have to tackle in order to complete the challenges. These roadblocks ultimately lead me to find solutions to problems I had previously avoided and that leads to growth and a greater understanding of what I can achieve with paper art.
Below are some challenges that I am participating in for the month of May.
