I also posted a time-lapse video of one of the papercuts below.

“As we fell into the light, Our worlds collide”

My, how ancient was the last time I posted here? The past months had been crazy busy with work (and a bit of travel) on the side that I hadn’t used my trusty craft knife for weeks. This week is a different story, though, as I had to finish 3 commissions which were all needed urgently… but that would be for a different post.

So I was browsing through my phone’s photos and I saw this papercut which I made more than a month ago. I like the design (credits to Tina Tarnoff) because it silently tells the start of a love story, with cupid aiming his arrow at the couple.

This was to be given as a wedding anniversary present so I incorporated the name of the couple to customize it.

You must wonder where and how I got the title for this post. It’s a song which I like very much (just the intro itself is a beauty) by the band The Mostar Diving Club. Listen to the song here:

The Moon and the Stars

I’ve been locked up in my room all day today. Being a Saturday and the start of a long weekend, I had the liberty to wake up late, lay on my bed lazily while watching a movie, and organize my washi and paper tape collection. 20131228-165727.jpg I figured since I’ve been making my projects for two days straight, I needed some time off. Even just for today. Speaking of projects, I think I may have framed my favorite project as of yet. This is a commissioned artwork for a friend whom I’ve done plenty of papercuts for before. 20131228-170301.jpg I just love the effect the double-glass frame makes on the papercut, don’t you agree? I think I’m gonna buy more from where it came from. 20131228-170316.jpg I love the message too! Sending everyone an early New Year’s greeting! Here’s another one who’d also like to send her well wishes 🙂 20131228-170635.jpg

All Grown-ups Were Children First

This is a commissioned papercut inspired by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s best-selling book The Little Prince.

For this project, I used three pieces of paper to cut on: plain white paper for the little prince image and text, blue cardstock for the rays, and light blue printed scrapbooking paper for the waves on the foreground. The crumpled paper background was placed by my client herself. If I remember correctly, she used three pieces of Japanese paper and wrinkled them for a textured effect. Neat, huh? 😉

Three Words to Live By

Here you go. My first project while on vacay. I had to think twice about using colored paper for this project, but after seeing how it turned out, I couldn’t be happier.

It’s a bit weird, though, because while I’m oozing with crafting ideas, I’m having the hardest time writing about my works while I’m away. So please forgive my extra lazy and incoherent sentences. Guess you could say my brain cells are on break as well? 😛

P.S. Credits to my mom’s well-maintained garden for providing the background for this post’s project 🙂
