Superglue, Knives and Birds Oh My!

It was 2am in the morning, the moon was high and there wolves were on the hunt (ok thats not accurate- it was raining and there’s no wolves).  And I had just nearly finished a complicated-ish (I’ve only been at this for 3 weeks now) papercut when my knife slipped.  It ran over my thumb […]

Wonky Butterfly

Tonight I was wondering if I was ready for something slightly more detailed than my previous…um efforts. But I wanted whatever I was going to make look different as well (this is a poorly formed sentence).  So I doodled a butterfly but I think butterflies must be definately common in paper cutting so I pondered.  […]
