An etsy shop customer custom ordered these hand cut papel picados from me (it took a long time, but it was fun and worth it!) and strung them up above her headboard. I was speechless when I saw this! I want to make more! Get your custom orders to me if you want your own custom papel picados!
Due to a happy misunderstanding, I have started creating custom papel picados. I thought I was being commissioned to create my papel picado designs, done digitally and then printed out. But my customer wanted actual cut out, custom picados. I saw it as a challenge and an opportunity to create what I’d always wanted to try, but never actually had the time to do. Yes, it’s hard work, but I enjoy it much more than I thought I would. I’m pretty quick at it as well! Recovery for my hand is the longest part of the process. Here are the first two of a 5 piece series. I’ll be working on 3 tomorrow and hopefully get 4 and 5 done this weekend. Stay tuned! And let me know what you think of these so far!
I just finished this quote portrait of Audrey Hepburn. I am really happy with it! All the prints are now available at the shop as an instant download (that’s right, no waiting, and FREE SHIPPING!) for only $10! Check out the other prints:
There are some amazing ideas on this list. Admit it, we all have some old boots that could use some love. Make sure to comment with photos any refashions that you do! I have 2 pairs of boots that my cat scratched up, but if i refashion, perhaps I can give them new life!
