IN THE GARDEN




Have I ever mentioned how much I love the look of cut paper? You can probably tell when you look at the Adam & Eve Soap packaging I did.. although that was a bit nuts of me, I admit. A few years back, I did a series of pop-up cards that looks much like these, with just white cut outs and a bright color behind them. Purty purty.

This little guy is three layers of paper all stuck into one of those deep box frames. I wish I had more time to do things like this... they're so relaxing (but so time consuming!)

Thanks guys! I love the stuff those guys do (AMAZING), but I try not to look at much of their work... it's too intimidating! I'm gonna try and keep this as just a hobby... trying to compete (in any way) with those guys would be nuts!

Amazing! You are so multi-talented. I think you should do an entire series for Etsy. They'd sell like hot cakes : )

Mary Beth, that would be FANTASTIC! I'm actually doing a mini-launch right at the beginning of January, so your timing is impeccable. I can't access your blog though for some reason, so I sure hope you see this comment! You can shoot me an e-mail at quailcreative@gmail.com
