Cut Paper Everywhere...

Long time no blog! Here goes.

I've been up the past few nights working on a paper sculpture for a magazine cover... not sure if I'm allowed to blog the final yet, but here are some tasty scraps hanging around my work desk! Enjoy :~)

A business man negative.

Some paper cutting utensils... sharp!

I've constructed a tiny paper "glue boat" for the Elmer's.

Jagged mountain cut-outs.

Here's part of the finished product. A road sign to indicate it's time to reduce your carbon footprint.

Merge, please!

Caution: Networking Ahead.

...and here's where I keep all my paper scraps I've collected through the years. I know it may look disorderly, but it's really not so bad. It's full of papers I've cut out of for several different projects, and papers that I think are way too pretty to ever touch!

I was lucky to be shopping at a World Market when they were stocking cases of this Bonny Doon wine: Domaine des Blagueurs Syrah Sirrah. It's label is decorated with one of my favorite Ralph Steadman illustrations!
(Yummy wine, too.) This artsy box was saved from the cardboard baler and has been admired for some time now ;~)

Hope you enjoyed my art mess before I clean it all up!

all that gluing and cutting and you still have a perfect manicure :) I always loved working on paper sculpture in collage. Look forward to seeing the final!

Haha, thanks, Holli!
I make sure to only photograph anything involving my nails after they've been freshly painted ;~)

I can't wait to see the finished product either! Oh...My husband is a huge Ralph Steadman fan too.
