This site literally made me gasp with delight. I’ve never quite seen anything like the work done by artist Aniko Kolesnikova. 
 
She creates beautiful polymer journals inspired by both the natural world (birds and animals) and the supernatural world (dragons).
 
Take a look at this incredible frog.
