I.F. SHINY

Elves are pretty gifted at making toys but their true expertise lies in making things shiny.



Created this week for Illustration Friday's topic "SHINY".

    1. Thanks K.H. It's a challenge to create something new each week for Illustration friday. It's sometimes tempting to use something from my past that fits or not for the topic. After I fight through it I'm usually glad I did.
