CoP - Cherish These Arms by Ai-Bee CoP - Cherish These Arms by Ai-Bee
Clouds will rage, and
Storms will race in
But you will be safe
In My Arms
Rains will pour down
Waves will crash around
But you will be safe
In My Arms

In My Arms - Plumb


May be surrounded by
A million people; I
Still feel all alone
I just wanna go home
Oh, I miss you, you know...

Let me go home
I’m just too far from where you are
I wanna come home..

Home - Micheal Buble

---------------- A medley, from us to ourselves

This was constructed purely from layers of paper. I used blue, off-white, black and gold construction paper, white printer paper for the brighter clouds, and tracing paper for the slightly transparent rays of sunshine. The stars are stickers I had lying around, which sparkle in the sunlight. Everything was detailed with colored pencils and applied with normal school glue.

The two figures are supposed to have shadows behind them, as they were taped on to achieve a slightly popped out look, and the whole project is backed on cardboard for stability. Granted it looks much more attractive in person, I am pleased with this version, which I scanned and toyed with.

This took a total of two days, and I enjoyed every minute of it. I didn't want to apply a large watermark because it would cover the picture, and I am asking that you please do not edit or submit this anywhere and make me regret my decision to share this with the public.
It's very personal to me.

Edit: Oh my goodness... Thank you SO MUCH for the Daily Deviation! I'm speechless and flattered and wow. I don't know what to say. Thank you SO much! :thanks: :heart: :heart: :heart:

Daily Deviation

Given 2013-02-09
The suggester said:"CoP - Cherish These Arms by *Ai-Bee is one of those pieces that I like looking back on. I always loved her paper cut-out art and I wish she'd make more. The details she puts with the colored pencils and how everything's so nicely cut out. The lyrics in the description just tie in everything together to make it that much more of an emotional piece" ( Suggested by Kallicalico and Featured by rydi1689 )
