Bones and Flowers (on grey background)

I love the idea of presenting image of white on white background, but photographing them well is something that I need to learn more about.

For the time being, I'll be including colored background for viewers to see the cuts better.

Bones & Flowers

I'm forever in awe of the natural world.  It is full of wonders and beauty.

Apart from stones and pebbles, I also love bones and flowers. Something about them (animal skull and flower) together make sense to me.

Of this cut, I pushed myself to work on finer line work as I'd like know just how fine a cut I could achieve.

The Cutting Board

Finally got enough of cuts to to assemble a Cutting Board!

20120721 The Cutting Board

(Sorry for the rather greyish pix.  It has been raining for weeks here.)

Most of the papercut artworks I came across are all in 1 piece.  However, I quite like the idea of having several smaller cuts and put them together the way I like it.

As the cuts are not mounted on the board permanently, I could always re-assemble or create a new board when I have more cut pieces.

It's like I'm building something or developing something ... (maybe, maybe not).

(You could view the details of the rest of the cut pieces either from my earlier posts: here, here and here or from my Flickr photostream.)

Cheers and stay creative! xxoo

Pebbles Cut

My love of stones and pebbles call for these cuts ...

201207 Pebbles 2

They are in the becoming stages, but I'm enjoying the learning and growing process.

The images are based on one of the sketchbook pages I did last year. (Below).

If I'm Being Honest ...

The nagging feelings have been going on for many many months.  But I chose to to ignore it.  I didn't want to know that I might have been wrong all these time, that I still don't know what I'm supposed to do with my life ...

201207 Learning

The fact is that I'm still looking for that thing, that absolute thing which I was born to do, to be.

Time is truly running out when you are at a certain number of your age.  I just don't have that many sets of 10-years for trial and error.

201207 Sprouting

All these trying out of different creative medium have revealed its true purpose behind.  It was the process of becoming.

The mind have been so wrapped up by all the possibilities that it was drowned in it. I have lost my own language of becoming.

I'm starting anew to be honest to myself, to learn to speak my tongue all over again.

201207 Delicate

I'm also re-learning to be forgiving to my mistakes, to believe that all is not lost.
