I've loved crafting for as long as I can remember. These days I mainly focus on making nappy cakes for baby showers and expectant parents but I still love trying new crafts and being creative. That's why I was drawn towards paper cutting, I liked the idea of creating something unique with just a sheet of paper, a pencil and a scalpel.I've always wanted to have a go at paper cutting, so I decided to make a spooky decoration with it being so close to Halloween! So I bought a pack of black paper and a scalpel and got to work! The paper is white on the back, so I drew a graveyard scene, complete with scary tree and crow sitting on a gravestone and carefully cut it out with my scalpel. I've placed my cutting on a piece of white paper so that you can see it clearly. The witch and ghost were cut out separately so that I can move them around before I stick them down.
Thanks to Hayley for such a great guest post. We love the effect of combining paper cutting with a painted lantern. This is perfect for some Halloween crafting, but you could also use different designs for loads of different occasions! We're certainly going to try it out ourselves!!
This is amazing. I may well have a go at this for my #craftblogclub challenge! xReplyDelete
They are great aren't they? xxDelete
What a fantastic lantern, the black on top of the metallic purple is a great contrast, and the LED tealight a brilliant idea for lighting it up.ReplyDelete

I really need to try painting the inside of my canning jars. I think I'll try a Thanksgiving theme like a cornucopia or scarecrow.ReplyDelete
