The Secret Garden - papercut by StrandedAutumn
The Secret Garden - papercut
Finally finished the second one for the school fair -by far the one that's taken me the longest. It's The Secret Garden and was designed by Bramble Crafts, hand cut by me :)
Mountain Bike - Layered Papercut by StrandedAutumn
Mountain Bike - Layered Papercut
This is a commission I was asked to do from a photo of the recipient - it's going to be a Father's Day gift.

The figure is hand cut from 5 shades of 160gsm hammered paper and the background hand cut from 2 layers to resemble the trees in the original photo, then floated in a box frame to give it depth.

I love how this turned out - it's the first time I've done a layered papercut floating over a layered background and it won't be the last. :)
I've been so busy with life in general that I haven't been on here for a while; so just posted a couple of crochet cushions I've made recently.

Now back onto the portraits - working on one of my youngest grandson Louie - 3rd of the way through :)
  • Listening to: Kelly Clarkson

Journal History


StrandedAutumn's Profile Picture
Karen Greenhalgh
Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
United Kingdom
So I'm 45yrs old and live in sunny (not) Bolton in the UK. have absolutely no art training of any kind but what I lack from training I make up for by enthusiasm and the desire to keep practicing and improving and trying new things.

I love -

Oil Painting- realistic landscapes at the moment but want to have a go at more fantasy scenes
Painting wall murals
Photography - nature/landscapes and especially snow scenes
Drawing and sketching e.g. Disney characters, fairies, fantasy
Crochet and Knitting! (New hobby inspired by my 2 grandsons)
Creating Horror make up effects

I'll be posting examples of each at some point...

Anything you want to know just ask!!

Thanks for looking


P.S. More pics of my horror make up attempts and crochet and knitting projects on my blog - see link below
