This is a small commission I completed for a client a couple of weeks ago and was waiting to share it until after it was given (and received) as a gift.

The requirements were for the paper to be cerulean blue, for the work be to made into a card that could be framed later, and for the design to be ocean-themed. It also needed to be turned around on short notice so I used an existing design I’d created for a previous commission.

I like this wave design enough to now consider creating it as a paper cut “print” for my Etsy shop. What do you think?

I’ve had a few small commissions to work on for clients who ordered things during Culture Crawl. One of these is this small three dimensional paper cut for a good friend. She liked one of the pieces I had on display but wanted something similar in yellow rather than black.

The piece is small, only 5″ x 5″ from yellow card stock and backed with a lighter yellow in the framed version (which is too subtle to see in the photos). It resembles wheat blowing in the breeze rather than a wing as these pieces sometimes do. I’m inspired to do more work like this but on a larger scale going forward.

These are two recent commissioned pieces I created for clients over the last few weeks. This is the second paper cut letter C I’ve been requested to make, and the first Z (that’s zed not zee).

This is one of the offerings I have available on Etsy as a made to order item. The client chooses the letter and colours, and I do the cutting.
