This is a paper cut out book i worked on
for my final masters degree show, it has about 50 layers
in it and depicts part of my magical world. Currently I'm
working on recording it so you can see the build up of
layers in more detail but for now a little preview of what
is to come.

Thank for the links Tim,

The leather neck pieces are amazing. Good to see the paper cutting technique being used in fashion. All the work i do for fashion is flat, would be great to start something a little more three dimentional to my fashion designs. Thanks again, lots of inspiration!!
