And here’s another one I made, that will be available on my Etsy shop later today. This piece is bigger than the one in my last post, measuring 30 x 40 cm. White card stock is used for the cutout piece which is mounted on recycled brown card – a more neutral and organic look. Again, this can be done in different colours (for both the cut-out piece and the backing board) so if you fancy something custom-made for whatever the occasion, simply drop me a line via my ‘contact page‘.
This is taken from one of my favorite verses from the Bible (1 Corinthians 13:13) and one that we used at our wedding that I find so understatedly powerful. And whether you are religious or not, I think these three words can be so poignant to all aspects of our lives; from career paths to relationships to general lifestyle. In this day an age where we live in the fast lane, driven by ambition, financial and social statuses, and materialistic things, I do find myself musing over what’s important in life, and it’s those days when I stop to reassess, I realise how much strength and peace you can seek from just living by these three simple words. Anyway, I’m not here to philosophise but show you how I turned those three words into a bespoke wall art for the home….or for a special occasion! :)
It’s a paper-cutout technique I love (and used many times before) where the layout is first designed, mapped out, each letter individually hand cut and then mounted in a way that it sits a couple of millimeters off the backing card to give you that beautiful shadow gap between the two planes (it’s the architectural side of me coming out here, sorry!) This piece fits an 8×10″ box frame and can be made using various backing card stock to suit your home decor. I’m going to be listing this up on my Etsy shop soon, along with a couple of other ‘paper-cutout’ wall art pieces, so I’ll keep you posted when I do! I can obviously do custom pieces based on your requirements, so if you’re interested – I may be the gal for you! :) x
