I wanted to do something simpler, cleaner, where paper was the main and only medium (oh well... and a little bit of pencil?.. and maybe some pastel?) So to Flickr I went to do some research and find inspiration and many hours and 2 muffins later this is what I found:
1. flower power, 2. 4 de 4, 3. Untitled, 4. Super nose, 5. Untitled, 6. small object paper dolls, 7. humpty dumpty, 8. lost and lonely, 9. ********, 10. She knows that is possible to fly, 11. i love sweet basil, 12. Untitled, 13. Untitled, 14. Untitled, 15. My Winter Boots, 16. Pin Pal card design, 17. I should be in a Shakespearean play right now, 18. Group Hug!, 19. Paper Quilt Project, 20. #5
Many wonderful ideas to start with! Paper dolls, paper collages, paper quilts... the quantity of beautiful art on Flickr is just endless...But being girls and animals my main line of work this is what I came up with:
"Running with carrots", available here
They're not framed yet.. but don't they look beautiful? It was a lot of work but I'm very happy with the results! Similar to free hand drawing... but this was free hand cutting. No molds, not previous drawing on the paper... just plain cuts...
So pretty and clean... but the mess has to go somewhere... let me show you where that is:
They will be available at my Etsy shop beginning tomorrow and I'll be adding the rest during the week :)
By the way... It's raining!!!!! Now I can check off my list one of those things that I really, really wanted... If only I had one of these stripped roosters :P
