My Passionate Love Affair…

Saturday May 31st, 2008, 6 years, 6 months and 3 weeks ago

…with paper continues… I’ve just given myself blisters from cutting hundreds of little paper shapes for a new collage I’m making. Someone needs to invent scissors with fur-lined handles.  Fake fur of course. After cutting (what seemed like) the 40 billionth shape, I started fantasising about buying a digital die-cutter, but for this project at least, part of the fun is in hand-cutting the paper.

I really do love paper & ink…I hope my passion for them shows in what I do. The finished collages, which are bases for paintings & prints, are just so tactile & lovely. The blisters are (almost) worth it!

Notice anything different? Take a look at the top of my left sidebar…pretty spiffy, eh? Turns out Julian Lievano (of Heart-o-Matic fame) is not only the Evil Knievel of glass blowing, but the Steve McQueen of coding too. He made this nifty little gallery widget especially for my blog. Thanks Julian, I love it! :)

Anyway, toodle-loo for now! :)

    Occasionally I fantasize about getting a digital die-cutter too, but I’m a purist and love welding a knife. Your work looks beautiful as is your lovely blog.
