I first came across one of Elly MacKay's dreamy prints on the front page of Etsy a little while ago.
It had an ethereal, whimsical, soft quality to it that immediately drew my eye and got me clicking through to her shop, which is called 'Theater Clouds'.
Once there, I wasn't disappointed.
Her prints are a pure delight.... with a sort of hazy, wistful, fairy-tale quality that I loved.
Here are some of my favourites....
Elly has a bachelor of Fine Art, and makes these images by inking yupo paper and cutting it into layers that she sets up in a miniature theater.
She then plays with the lights and filters to create atmosphere, and then photographs the scenes.
I ask you - how cool is that?!
You can see the process here....
Elly also has a truly lovely blog with many more gorgeous images and a portfolio slideshow that's a real treat to watch.
This image is on my Etsy wishlist.
It's entitled 'The Name Her Heart Sang', and it just calls to me.
