My paper garden

In the past couple of years, I started gardening. It’s absolutely wonderful to see how everything grows in this country. So I decided to recreate the exact same plants I have in my garden, but in paper. Fuchsias, geraniums, a spider plant, tulips, calendulas, dahlias, orchid, lavender. And of course the tools: gloves, a watering can, trowel, mini secateurs and spades.
The box is 23x23cm so the flowers are very small, it’s all handmade.

Ode to Anxiety

Ode to Anxiety – Personal Work

A couple of months ago, my baby was quite ill. My anxiety was all over the place, couldn’t sleep really. Every night I went to my desk and hand cut it a little bit of this piece. It’s completely handmade. Took me 3 months to complete, doing and hour now and then when everyone else was sleeping in the house. Papercutting helps me to focus and relax when I need it the most.
I called it “Ode to Anxiety” because that’s how I felt it. Something growing and growing like a plant coming from the stomach, taking over everything that was around. I’m very fond of this piece, it’s very different of what I normally do. Finished it when Felix was better and cured.

Every night I have a discussion with my husband -“You have too many clothes”, – “actually no, I need more space!”. So I thought why not recreate my wardrobe? It is full of stuff…. can you see the cat?
It is made with ivory and brown textured paper.
It has a wooden base. Height: 32 cm.

I made a very similar piece for the book “Beautiful Paper Cutting: Over 30 Creative Projects for Cards, Gifts, Decor, and Jewelry” published by Lark Crafts.
