Look Up!

A 3D paper cut design inspired by the night sky. Many of us forget to look up and appreciate the stars and planets - you don't even need a telescope. It really makes you think how vast the universe is and how small and insignificant we are.

So many good things start with the letter T. Teabag, teacup, t-shirt. Where would we be without them?
All elements hand cut from coloured card and assembled with foam spacers.

A simple paper cut design based around the theme of dance, inspired by the master of paper cuts, Matisse. I decided not to use any digital methods to create this design - all elements drawn and cutout by hand, and the final result is simply photographed, which adds to the hand made feel.

This 3D paper cut is based on the famous phrase 'Storm in a Teacup' which essentially means don't make a big deal out of little things. The design was created from hand cut patterned and coloured paper.

Another Step

I originally created this design as a hand made paper cut - but also produced a couple of digital versions based on the saying 'One step at a time'. These digital graphics were created in Illustrator - but I much preferred creating the paper cut version.

This 3D paper cut design is a play on words - Cloned and CloWned - cloned clowns.
I hope it makes sense? All elements hand cut from coloured card and the layers assembled with foam spacers to create depth. The tricky part was making the clowns identical - from paper that is no mean feat. I think they look pretty similar?

A simple design created using paper shapes cut with scissors. Although this method is quite fiddly and time consuming, you get a nice hand made feel which I think adds to the effect. This design celebrates vinyl LP's and 45's for those who can remember them!

Grin and Bear it

A new paper cut design based on the popular phrase 'Grin and bear it'. I have created a bear, with a grin, with a sign. Mission completed. All elements hand cut and assembled from coloured card.

Another hand cut paper design based on the feeling I'm in my own little world sometimes!
All elements are cut from paper and glued down, and the final result is then photographed.
The process is much more fun than working digitally and you get a nice hand crafted look.

Inner Colour

This 3D paper cut design has no real graphic message, I just thought it would make a nice effect revealing the colours behind the paper oval 'doors'. The second image reminds me of pantone chips - albeit circular ones.
