White pointillism

The pointillism technique is such a lovely way to create a smooth smoke effect. (A.k.a. Trying out the new white marker.)

Baby boom stork pendant

My Baby boom story was one on the most popular ones I ever did, and with so many friends expecting their own stork lately, I wanted to give them a little piece of this paper-story. http://paper-stories.com/papercuts/baby-boom/

Digitally re-traced and laser cut the little storks, out of 3mm Perspex, they keep the same detail and intricacy as the original paper one. I am very happy to say that after so long of testing and trying to get them right, they are now finally ready and available on my etsy shop: https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/199952360/stork-baby-boom?

 

Check it out!!

Etsy shop now open!

Thrilling news today!

I know-I know, it’s been a while since I ve written here as I lately post in-process/ cutting-away photos straight on my facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/paperstoriesk?ref=hl&ref_type=bookmark (note to shelf: come back and explain the back-story of some of my more recent works)

However, in the background I have been developing a line of accessories/jewelry that lift out elements from some of my original paper-cut stories. For this I have digitally retraced the original paper-cut and used laser-cutting to fabricate perspex. It is wonderfully exciting to see that the perspex jewelry have kept all the detail and intricacy of the original ones.

So, I am very thrilled to announce that my very first product, a brooch from my rain series paper-stories is now on my etsy: https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/193716297/rainy-days-brooch?ref=pr_shop

More items to follow shortly, so watch this space. As ever any feedback is very welcome!

A couple of months back I was inbetween stories to cut and itching to go back to my scalpel and cutting mat. Around that time was when I noticed the telephone wires outside Stoke Newington station be weighted down by so many birds…
and VOILAA!!!

Paper-stories Bookmark

Paper-love bookmarks:
For Thania & Lefteris Wonderful wedding, they got a paper story of their lovely home, with their hobby/sports equipment and them all loved up in the middle: (see the original paper-story: Thania & Lefteris home)

A year later, for their paper anniversary I used the papercut figures to digitally trace them and lasercut them into bookmarks.
