Gorgeous paper cutouts by Helen Musselwhite

Helen Museelwhite's paper cutouts are so stunning.


All of the above works are from Helen's website (which is also gorgeous, natch), where I also found this awesome gem:
"For me, it all started with one of those bumper packs of felt tips. One of my earliest memories is of tearing open Christmas wrapping paper to find a vivid array of coloured pens inside—then immediately rearranging the colours in a way that pleased me better. That was it; I was off on a voyage of creative discovery that continues to this day."
 All it takes is one spark!

  12. The newspaper adds an awesome element of "found" materials to the project, for sure. :)
