Folk Art Schoolhouse Papercut

This is a smaller piece that took me about 4 hours to cut. It measures 17.5cm x 17.5cm.
I want to cut a series of vignettes all this size - all showing different traditional scenes. If you've got any suggestions I'd be very happy to hear them!

Papercut House

Here's the finished piece. The finished size is A3.
I think my favourite bit is the back yard with the girl on the swing. And my favourite room is the bedroom with the dressing table and wash-stand.

House Papercut

Here you can see that I've added the music room and the nursery upstairs. My client's request was that the papercut shows the dad's love of his old vinyl music collection and also that the house is full of flowers and plants. The family have 3 girls - one is still a little baby. I like to try and keep it oldy worldy, even though it's for a modern family. Just seems more appropriate for this project.

Kitchen Papercut

Here's the kitchen bit of the papercut all finished. Now I'll get started on the next room! Quite pleased with my work-rate though.

Commissioned House Papercut

This is a rough sketch for a house papercut that I've been commissioned to make as a house-moving gift. The finished piece will be A3 and the reverse of the picture you see here. I'm starting it today while my kids are out! Hopefully I'll get a good headstart on it as there's quite a tight deadline for this one.

New Folk Art Designs

Hi and I'm back from my way too short holiday up in Northumberland. It's so gorgeous up there! It wasn't practical to take my papercutting stuff up there, so I just took my sketch pad and pen and did a few different sorts of designs for a change. They're all hand-drawn in pen (so please excuse any mistakes!) and then I've coloured a couple of them up in photoshop. I'm thinking of making them into greetings cards. Hope you like them. It's nice to be back. x
