I Can Tell I'm Not Dreaming / Half Past TwoI’ll be working on a large papercut for a while so I decided to post two small things.
The one on the left is a study for the large piece I’ll be working on. The finished character will have different hands, ears and skirt.
The piece on the right is something I made really quickly as a gift for a baby shower. I was trying to use the darker green to simulate thick glass and water. I’m not sure the thick glass element works, but oh well.

I Still Can't Believe You're GoneI had the idea to use two panes of glass to separate individual papercuts a long time ago, but I never got around to designing one.
This weekend I met with a group of artists who I’m going to be working with and the discussion we had inspired me to finally do it instead of continually saying, “next time”.
I know adding a pane of glass isn’t a unique idea or a giant leap, but it is something I’ve wanted to do.
I really like the depth that the heavy shadow under the main cutout creates.
I’d like to experiment with a third pane of glass, but unfortunately, unless I’m making very small cutouts, the amount of glass necessary makes them very heavy.
I look forward to making another one of these.
Now if only I could find some place that makes 4″ diameter custom embossers, I could try another idea…

It's Hard To Begin What You Know Will EndI’m having some web issues.
Sorry if navigating here is troubling over this past week.
I’m working with my webhost on it.
I may have to take it down for a short period.
More later…
