Floating Islands: Paper artworks depict the homes of your dreams

in Inspiration / Crafts

If 'home is where the heart is' then I should probably seek residency in a gingerbread house. Or perhaps in a Pug-shaped abode. Either will do.

It's a shame, therefore, that illustrator Vera van Wolferen's series of Floating Islands aren't big enough for humans.

This super cute collection of paper artworks has been intricately handcrafted by the Netherlands-based visual artist, but could be mistaken for being computer generated. She is inspired by her everyday surroundings – "seemingly common household objects, architectural elements and automobiles are fused into magical landscapes".

The handcrafted scenes she creates are described as "vehicles for the imagination" – we couldn't agree more, they're simply lovely.
