I received an email about being mentioned in a tweet. Designer Enric Gatell used one of my original pop-up cards designed years ago (but shared here with many of my other cards) as an inspiration for his web work. He designed an online pop-up card powered by scrolling. Here is a link so you can experience the card in motion:
I am still thinking and designing in 3D with my paper crafting. For Halloween I made a pair of kitties. They have been sized so an LED tea light will fit in the head and the eyes glow! You should have seen my granddaughter's reaction to them!
I am selling the cutting files for both Silhouette and Cameo crafters on my store site at 3DCuts.com. The most time consuming part of creating files like this is making the step-by-step tutorial to go along. Check it out here.
And I put up a blog post about it back in 2012 here.
Recently, I received a very nice email from a student in Australia, Mackenzie Page. She was working on a art project inspired by the work of others for a school assignment. She chose my paper flowers as her inspiration. Part of the assignment required communication with the original artist so she emailed me. I answered her questions and asked that she send along a photo of her finished work. I received I nice email last week with several photos. She took my idea of the flowers and a branch but from it, created her own variation. It is a mobile with the flowers hanging in descending strings. The view up is an incredible one.
Makes for a stunning crib mobile. Nice job Mackenzie!
