This Year's Neule

It has been awhile since I have posted, but Christmas is just around the corner. That calls for taking a few minutes to cut a new neule design. This year it is an angel singing. It is a really nice to have a new addition hanging in my front room. I'm thinking that next year I will have to add a new string for neule hanging. It is getting a little crowded. I hope that your holidays are merry and bright this year!

The sunflowers are starting to bloom along the roadside, and I was inspired to try my hand at some more papercuts. The top cut is 11 x 14, and all the black lines are cut paper. It got a little tricky to keep the lines straight as I tried to glue the colored pieces on underneath.

This sunflower was much easier to accomplish because it much smaller at 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches. The paper lines were much more stable.

Hanging Out with Friends

Here is a papercut that I cut a little while ago based on an old photo. I wanted to try something a little bit different by leaving the black paper around the outside. I didn't think about the staples that I used to hold my pattern on top of the black paper, however, so I ended up with staple holes along the outside. Fortunately, those are easily covered up with a mat.

It is About Time for Another Papercut

It has been awhile since I have posted anything. I just can't believe how busy life has been lately. I finished this papercut this week for the Art Squared auction at Spring City, Utah over Memorial Day weekend. I had originally planned to place it over a watercolor wash, but I changed my mind when I was finished. I think it looks like a doily.
