Paper and paisley

Paisley River

I love fiddly things that take hours to finish – it’s almost like a type of meditation for me (the girl who can’t shut her brain up to do actual factual meditation!) Recently I started playing with tiny bits of cut paper because I loved the patterns they formed as well as the meditative aspect. I’ve made a few cards with this technique to give to family members and friends, and I was thinking about selling similar ones on Etsy but I need to work on how much time I spend on each card while still maintaining the effect, because I know people probably won’t spend too much per card (even if they are pretty!)

I may get out my Gocco and print up some designs in the next few weeks, ready for cutting and pasting tiny bits of pretty paper!

    These are gorgeous! Really lovely and genius creativity

  • Oh your drawings + cut paper work so well together! I get what you mean with how long each will take, so I think the Gocco is the perfect solution to that – and still far more 'hand-made' than scanning one finished card and printing it off with zero dimension.

    I always forget about my poor little print gocco. I guess I should stock up on some supplies before I can't get them anymore! Have fun :)
