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?

Here’s my 3D, cut paper French poodle made for a little girl who adores puppies and wanted something to match her Paris Toile bedding from www.PotteryBarnKids.com. Her name is Gigi and she is made of scrapbook paper with colored pencil shading to make her fur look as fluffy as cotton candy, watercolor paper and acrylic paint for her facial features. I glued a thin layer of cardboard between pieces to give her a little dimension…

Made these monarch wings out of hand cut scrapbook paper for a family shoot with photographer Brittney Williams. You can see more from this session at http://www.brittneywilliamsphotography.com/?p=1256!

Hello Kitty as my favorite mythological creature! She’s currently framed in my office next to her sister. She’s all hand cut scrapbook paper with foam board in between her layers to make her 3-D. I bent some of the paper to give it a rounded effect before I glued it together.
