Tutorial Video – Paper cut wreath using the Silhouette Cameo

Welcome to my tutorial where I show you how to make a stunning paper cut wreath using the Silhouette Cameo, if you don’t have a cameo then fear not, you can also cut it by hand or use any other cutting machine.
We will start by drawing the leaves and berries, photographing them using a mobile phone or tablet. We will then adjust the photo and trace them before cutting and assembling them out of paper.
Here are some photos of the finished wreath and creation process, the tutorial video can be found below these.

Video Tutorial – Make a paper cut wing from scratch :)

Hello, I hope you are all well and enjoying mid-summer :) It was a bit wet and cold in London this weekend plus I hurt my leg in a fall on the Strand in central London (what a sight, I was sprawled all over the pavement) so I stayed in and painted lots of colourful art journal pages (to be published here soon).

I also discovered free demos on my xbox! so I ahem ‘tested’ a few of them and will be getting the full versions of Diablo III and DMC soon :)

Here is the video tutorial for my paper cut wing template, I show you how to draw the wing feathers and prepare them for cutting on an electronic cutter, part 2 includes adding the feathers to the base in an ‘artistic interpretation’ of a real wing :) If you want to just go ahead and cut the wing template without drawing it first, my SVG files are here

Video – Speed painting a grunge layered stencil background

Watch me paint this layered stencil background. I didn’t manage to finish the painting as I knocked a whole pot of black paint onto the carpet… oops! At least the floor now looks artistic :)

New Mini Album

I made this mini album following a pattern by Kathy Orta of Paper Phenomenon. The paper used is Kraft Fun Day by My Minds Eye and I intend to use it to hold a printed copy of my blog :) I painted the cover using mixed media paints, stamping and stencils. kathy orta all occasions min album joanne seale kathy orta all occasions min album joanne seale kathy orta all occasions min album joanne seale kathy orta all occasions min album joanne seale kathy orta all occasions min album joanne seale kathy orta all occasions min album joanne seale kathy orta all occasions min album joanne seale kathy orta all occasions min album joanne seale kathy orta all occasions min album joanne seale kathy orta all occasions min album joanne seale

Throwback Thursday – Paper ghettoblaster

In 2013 I decided to create a ghetto blaster 3d paper cutting template from scratch. It was challenging and exciting to invent new methods for constructing the details such as the equaliser, the working cassette tray :), tape deck controls and the teeny tiny cassette tape. :) more photos and SVG here boombastic box 3d svg cuting file
