Illustration Friday - Layer

Whenever it snowed,
 Sophie's mommy dressed her in so many layers,
she could hardly move

remember those days as a child, when you were stuck in all of those layers?

For more layers, visit Illustration Friday, here

You can just feel the bulkiness of the layers. I also enjoy the little critter behind her. Thanks for the comment, I follow your blog I believe, nice work.

Great expression and pose, she's not pleased that's for certain! XD Also love the colors and her twirled ribbons in her hair~

I actually miss those days, one was invincible against the snow! You rolled around and got wet and dirty, but thanks to the layers of clothes you weren't bothered... XD

Tammie said...

Oh, I can feel it, so many layers it is hard to move, but this also makes me smile, so cute. Time for me to put layers on and go get some wood for the fire!

YES, I remember that very well...a funny memory; we lived in front of a river and in the winter when it froze we'd always walk down the long lane to skate.
My parents had padded me up and stuffed me in multi-layers of clothing, plopped me on the sled to give me a ride. However, I had fallen off the sled and was so tauntly wrapped that I couldn't even scream and let them know I'd fallen off; of course, did they notice it on their own?
NO WAY!!! so there I layed on the ice covered gravel until they spotted a bundle; just there...

Missy said...

Cute, love the prupleness of this this! Love their expressions, so funny. I think it's so cute how you always throw in the little kitty or mousey friend:)

Amalia K said...

How adorable, Heather! I just love the look on her face. Now, my question is, do your girls experience the same thing? (^__^)

PS: Thank your for leaving such a kind comment, you are so sweet.

Sophia said...

LadyCat said...

Yes, I remember : ) But her layers are so pretty. Even her little kitty is bundled up tight.

AtelierBrigitte said...

Lovely take on the topic!

Diana said...

Reminds me of the little brother on A Christmas Story! Very cute illustration.

Susanna said...

yes, all those layers in winter time...brrrrrr....

Heather B. said...

Oh...I remember those layers. I loved to ice skate and just wanted to head to the pond wearing a "cute" skate outfit...not the snow pants and heavy sweaters and coat and scarf and scratchy stocking hat!

Super cute illustration!
