Attempted my first cut paper self portrait and here is the result…
All of the pieces were hand cut from scrapbook and watercolor paper except for the brown pupils and the white catchlights for which I used hole punches. The end result includes some text and is now on the homepage of MindiLeatham.com…
One of my resolutions for the new year is to improve my backgrounds and graphic design elements so I hope this was a step in that direction. What’d’ya think? Does it look like me?
So I’m sure it comes as no surprise to anyone that I’m huge Harry Potter fan! Really excited that my submission of my 3D cut paper Chocolate Frog was posted on the Gallery Nucleus HP blog yesterday. The Harry Potter Tribute Exhibition is in Alhambra, CA from July 9, 2011 – August 1, 2011…should be lots of fun! I am loving all the creative work on the blog, check it out here and leave a comment!
I’ve had such a great time working on my latest cut paper projects for
my sister’s first baby! They’re my biggest yet (poster size!) and
feature this Marie Antoinette inspired character that I also blogged in April and May ’09. I’ll post the finished products here just as soon as I add the last finishing touches.
