big floral papercut



I worked on this big ol' papercut a while back while I was in the groove of the floral papercut cards. It didn't turn out very well at first, so I put it aside and waited for inspiration to strike so I could finish it.

I love the strong black background and the punch it gives to the arrangement on the mantel. I have a terrible urge to drop what I'm doing and make an applique quilt just like it.

Made from art papers, cut by hand, with colored pencil accents. In an IKEA frame.

(I have felty plans for that bell jar too. Found it on sale at Ballard a while back. It needs something taller in it for sure.)

  4. Love the papercut as well. It's great inspiration!

    How about a fern or two in with the mushrooms for some height?

  5. Did you create the birds and nest scene (I think that's what I see anyway) in the small frame as well?

  6. Suzy, you read my mind. Fern frond and fiddlehead was my idea too.

    Xenia, no that is a Charley Harper print. Love his work.

  11. meredith919, that dome is a bell jar (cloche) from Ballard. The mushrooms are ones I made way long ago when I was trying to avoid cleaning my house, http://mmmcrafts.blogspot.com/2009/10/mushroom-avoidance-crafting.html
    I'm going to add to it to give it some height!
