I made this North London Park Safari for my sons, to print, colour in and take out to tick off on our adventures. If you are lucky enough and your local park has stayed open and you think you ll be up for playing, I ve linked the file here, for you to print out:
Let me know how you get on, I d love to hear from you.
The pointillism technique is such a lovely way to create a smooth smoke effect. (A.k.a. Trying out the new white marker.)
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!!
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…
