Desiree De Leon's '100 Days of Tiny Things' series features a blend of tiny everyday objects and drawings.

Desire De Leon creatively transforms tiny common objects into intricate 3D artworks. De Leon uses a split farfalle noodle as window curtains in one and clementine slices as lungs in another. De Leon created the Olympic flame and logo with a pink flower petal. Another piece features Cheerios as mini doughnuts. She also created pop culture references such as Marge from 'The Simpson' with her hair being made of small flowers.

The creative use of common items like food, flowers and house items creates intricate and delicate pieces of artwork. The items provide a pop of color for the black and white drawings that they are part of.
