What a splendid job! I love this style of paper craft art. I can't remember the name. Starts with an S. I have some magazines that feature these artists. I made one years ago for my Mom. I think they originated in Germany? Let me try to spell it...Schrenctite? ha, ha...bless you Google...Scherenschnitte, proper spelling. And yes, Germany.

Yours is very beautiful and detailed. I will have to keep this on my wheel of carousel ideas. I need to make some more hand made greeting cards. And recently bought a detailed coloring book with fine lines that could be perfect to adapt patterns for this. Off to rock you!

Thank you for the compliment.  I have been trying to adapt simple drawing but hadn't tried a coloring book.  Thank you for the idea!

You're welcome. You deserve it. That is very tedious cutting! Can I ask what method and paper you prefer?

Exacto and embroidery/cutical scissors are my favorite. Papers, I generally just experiment with. Some seem to shape better than others. I'm not sure the difference there. I collect them from all over, and don't seem to keep up with what are the actual kinds. Many have just been shared with me as extras from swaps, so I don't always have the label for the brands.

I have started making the inchie house things, as well. Back into the miniature and tedious crafts. Roll Eyes I love collage and paper arts. In addition to my sewing projects.

Last Christmas I made a ton of really neat snowflakes for my house, and for friends. I love to fold and trim those. If you have not already YouTubed things, there are a lot of tutorials for all of this style of art on there.

I like your spirit doll as well. I have not tried one of those, yet. I make little tea dollies. Similar poly face, but the size to put a tea bag into the fabric pouch body, square with little rag arms and legs, and can be mailed into a greeting card. "Since you aren't with me, share a cup of tea"  Grin

Hope to keep in touch and be a cyber friend  Kiss

Tedious pretty much explains my whole life.  I had a supervisor at work who said that I had more patience than anyone he had every met.  He would sit and listen to my calls and just laugh as I would get callers who wanted me to pull IE out of Windows line by line.  I do tend to do crafts know one else has even heard of.  Tedious can be good though, I find paper cutting very meditative.

I have also tried many papers and have found that the old clay based papers are very nice but tear when the knife gets dull.  The paper I find most useful is parchment papers from the stationary section of the office supply stores.  I have a huge selection because I also do book binding.  I have also had good luck with the Astrobright papers but they do tear more easily.  So to get colorful cuttings I use spray paint for paper.  I mostly use a stencil knife and a Cutter Bee scissors.  I do have an iris scissors but have never found them very useful.  The iris scissors were purchased to do Pergamano , another tedious craft!  There are a pair of scissors I want rather badly and I made a bet with my boyfriend that if I get a Fair ribbon for the paper cuttings I can buy them.  Since paper cutting is a miscellaneous craft the odds are I won't even get "Honorable Mention".  Two years ago I lost to a scale model of "Hogwarts" out of odds and ends, it was wonderful!

I had never heard of "inchie houses" I will have to try that too!  Snowflakes are really fun to make and one of these days I am going to do a huge pile of fancy ones.  As for the tea bag that sounds like really a lot of fun.  This year in the Fair I am entering a 25 inch square pineapple doily made with size 30 thread.  Yet another tedious project that I just love to do.

Thank you for your kind remarks about "Living in the Moment" doll.  Maybe you can join  if there is another swap, lots of fun making dolls.

Please feel free to send me a personal message.
