I’m a little obsessed at the moment with cutting these heart-shaped pieces. I’ve found myself working on a few ideas in my head, which is always the sign of an obsession.

I completed two different designs earlier this week. The first is a piece with two hearts, one large, and one small. I drew the heart outlines first and then created the form from an interesting mishmash of different shapes. This is cut from an 8.5″ x 11″ piece of red card stock, with the larger heart measuring at 5.25″ x 4.25″, while the smaller heart is 3″ x 2.75″

The finished piece is listed on Etsy, and is available for purchase.

This is my favourite of the hearts I’ve made so far. I decided to create the work from the repeating crescent shape I often use in my work, and the results were amazing. It makes for a mesmerizing design that plays with the eye (just what you want from a heart).
