New Designs, New Commissions

Following on from my previous post about not being able to do as much papercutting as I would like, here are a few other designs I've done over the past few weeks, I'm currently down to about one a week now, and really don't think I'll be able to do any more than this in the near future.

We are expecting!

Wow it really has been a long time since I did a post on here! I've been so busy with our changing lives that I haven't had the time to sit down and evaluate everything. Well I guess if you don't already know from my facebook page, I'd better tell you some very exciting news! My husband and I are proud to announce we are expecting out first baby, due 13th February 2013. For this reason I have had to take things a bit more easy and sill having a full time job during the day and papercutting by night something has had to give! I know I still have a lot of outstanding orders, or which some I will still be able to do, but some I might not, which I am sorry. I didn't realise how tired I would be, nor how it would effect my creativity and am finding it increasing hard to do new commissions when still doing my full time creative job and finding precious time to spend with my husband, family and friends. I hope everyone can understand. If you haven't heard from me in a while in reply to an email, just pester me, I've either missed it or thought I had replied (and yes baby brain is setting in!)

On another note here is a new commissions I have been able to do!

Father's Day Papercut Gift

Had my first commission for father's day, I also created a generic design that would be easy to purchase in a simple box frame. Themed around the garden, I wish to create others with different themes, but won't be available this year unfortunately.

If you are interested in purchasing one they are £38.50 including frame and postage to a UK address, though only 10 available, all signed and numbered, 4 already bought so get in quick!!!

Songbird Papercut Commission

I've finally finished this one! Its a set of three and they are A3 in size mounted in a 50" x 40" white frame with mount.

Bournemouth Beach Family Papercut Design

I have a commission to create a family design who live in bournemouth and wanted a beach theme, including of course beach huts. I wanted to include the Bournemouth balloon as its quite iconic here in our seaside town, here is my quick sketched idea:

When I scanned it in and started working on it, it developed slightly, why I didn't think about useding seagulls before I have no idea but this is how it turned out in the end:

First Wedding Anniversary

This is why I started designing papercuts because I couldn't find a gift to celebrate our first wedding anniversary, and being 'Paper' I know I could design and create something myself for us to treasure. Recently I have taken on many a commission to design personal tributes to celebrate this occasion for many different couples, here are a couple from this months anniversaries!

Songbird - My biggest commission so far!

I was asked to create a design that would work as a set, enabling the client to move the pictures easily with them if they more. This is my first set of 3 A3 designs, and to start off I sketched the ideas out before creating them to cut out. Here is where I am at.

Looking forward to finishing these and I think they will look amazing when finished!
