Yesterday I was practising my knife skills by cutting out a design based on a Cicely Mary Barker fairy. Today I had a go with the laser cutter:

flower fairy papercutting
flower fairy papercutting – cut with a knife

I was doing some research on CMB, and I think she lived in Storrington, which is sort of down the road from me.

She died in 1973 and her work is still in copyright, so these pieces are for my own enjoyment and I won’t be developing any for sale. I might try to find where her ashes were scattered though, and leave a couple of fairies there…
