Easter Holidays sketchbook

so not to be idle over Easter whilst i was away i set myself a small project based very loosely on 'lace'. the plan was to take one thing i had seen each day and turn it into a cut-out. as it progressed i used the cut-outs as stencils on the following page. armed with my scalpel and inspired by a visit to the Edinburgh laser Studio(more in another post)the following are the results.
corrugated card, although it could just as well have been rain or even snow on the bus window
street grills
Egyptian mummy wrappings
old ledger
hog weed
Easter eggs
and the most beautiful painting of gros point lace i have ever seen. must try and keep it up now i am back!


  1. What a great idea. I really like the Egyptian mummy wrappings.

  2. Fabulous results, and what a great idea, very different as usual, they made my morning.

  3. Super idea! I especially like the trees.
