This sleeping baby has No Idea she’s gone viral

Thanks to her mother who made her pictures go viral using her creativity and talent.

Los Angeles-based mother Laura Izumikawa Choi has a seemingly endless array of adventurous ideas for her four-month-old daughter Joey Marie’s nap time.

Her story is quiet similar to the one we published few months earlier. Both the stories are loaded with creativity and adventurous ideas. Have a look at the previous story images here which are even more adventurous than these ones by which this talented mom has narrated a totally different story in each image.

The baby’s photos have received more than 100,000 likes.

Diana Beltran Herrera paper aviary comprises hundreds of sculptural birds, flowers, plants and insects.

Diana Beltran Herrera, is a Colombian designer and artist who has been working over the past years with paper as the primary medium in the production of her work.

Herrera has exhibited in her country as well as participating in solo and group shows in Europe, Asia and USA. Her recent commissions includes a piece for the Festival of ideas (program developed by Bristol City Council), and her first solo show in Asia (Jakarta, Indonesia) supported by the Embassy of Colombia in Indonesia and Cancilleria de Colombia en el Exterior.

Artistic work with paper is often meticulous and exact, requiring a healthy dose of patience, a knowledge of materials, and a steady hand. Herrera’s handiwork has seen the making of more than 100 construction paper and cardboard birds, fish, flower, plants and insects. Her colorful collection of birds is sculpted with a precise hyper-realism that matches the personalities and peculiarities of species from the great Hornbill to the European goldfinch.

The birds begin with a structural framework, also made from paper. Interwoven cardboard sheets form a sturdy foundation for the layers Herrera then applies. Each exterior sheet is carefully cut in tiny, oblong shapes that resemble individually plucked feathers. a fringe-like texture sliced into each edge mimics the wispy texture of actual plumage. The bird takes shape as Herrera meticulously attaches each colored quill, finally forming both large and small scale species that are nearly identical to their living, physical counterpart.
