Papercut Paper Lace

Recently I've been looking at a lot of images of vintage lace and have been waiting for a spare day to try and papercut my own paper lace.

Here's my first attempt which I'm fairly pleased with although there's plenty of room for improvement!

I've got some ideas of where I'd like to take this idea, but need to do another sample or two first.

Family Tree Commission - Finished Piece

Here's the finished piece.  I've enjoyed making this piece so much.  Possibly more than any other piece I've made, I really feel this one will be a good old-fashioned family heirloom.  That's a good feeling.

Family Tree

I'm making good progress with the family tree piece.  I'm really enjoying it too.  With this piece I really feel like I'm creating a family heirloom for this particular family and hopefully it will be passed down through generations.  I like to think that anyway!

Here are some work-in-progress pictures.
