Emma Van Leest



Crust Station fed my love of papercut work with a new mane (to me) Emma Van Leest. Once again, someone who puts my own pieces to shame, aren't they amazing, so much details and no rips. I always have rips, or at the very least, ruchles (a scottish word? for ruched up bits, crumpled). Here's a detail of her above piece from her December Saints series...

well, maybe one day! marley trashed the one i was making for a 1st anniversary present and I got kind of disheartened and haven't tried again. it's so hard to redo something that took so long. but when i do redo, i'll show you!

Happy belated Birthday! March is such a great month.
I've been meaning to tell you that all you recent postings have been so lovely! I have really been enjoying reading them all. I especially enjoyed seeing your posts about your art work. What a treat! You make so many beautiful things. I was thinking later about your pod influenced pieces; did you ever make one inspired from a "mermaid's purse?" I thought you might be drawn to their unusual shape and sea creature origins.

Thanks for this link Cally - I just love and admire papercuts - I wish I had the patience and skill for it.
also loved the posts about your work - love that you never made any silver earrings and stuck to your own thing - we are all individuals does seemed to get a bit lost these days.
