Fine Wildlife Papercut

design, paperI AM AComment

Ultra, über fine wildlife nature inspired papercut, by San Francisco based papercut artist Kanako Abe.  The intricate and delicate paper cut technique is based on Ise-katagami (伊勢型紙) - a traditional Japanese paper craft technique composed of fine repeated patterns and shapes bringing these squirrels, bears, butterflies, forest plants and wildlife to life! 

Definitely no cabin fever, but an inspiration to head out to the woods!

Despite the trends and abundance of millennial pink around the Internet, there is just something pretty and warming about the colour combination of plants matched up with different shades of pink backgrounds. The Instagram account by Lotte Van Baalen magically captures just this, and aptly named Plants on Pink .
