Last year my gorgeous friend Holly Clifton Brown married the love of her life Mr Simon Brown. They had the most stunning, down to earth, rustic chic wedding you have ever seen, it was such a fun and beautiful day.

When it came to the wedding present it of course  had to be a hand crafted paper-cut, I took inspiration from the lady her self and the love they both have for the outside world.  I also used Holly's carefully considered designs she created for the invitations, table plan, and look of the day to influence my artwork.

Here are some pictures of the artwork in the making,  I used chalk pastels to create a two tones effect on the fern leaf, oats and barley. This is a new technique for me and one I thought was really effective for this particular piece.

It was a joy to create this piece for them, a piece that I know they treasure and has pride of place in their lovely new home together.

If you have been inspired by this post and have a special occasion that deserves a bespoke hand crafter paper art I would love to hear from you.
