The Valentine Paper-cuts of Elizabeth Cobbold
Featured in Victoria Magazine, February, 1995, and viewed in person recently by The Guild of American Papercutters, these charming artworks are perfect for modern-day paper-cut artisans. The images have been carefully copied on white paper, and are ready for cutting, or transferring to silhouette paper. The designs are suitable for intermediate hobbyists, but ideal for advanced craftspeople who wish to embellish the images, like the originals, with embossing and pinpricking. Copies of the original poetry which adorned these are included, and may be hand-written onto the design. Included also is historical background of this fascinating eighteenth century woman. Patterns fit a standard 8 x 10 backing and show the details clearly.
Victorian Children at Play
|Two charming period designs by another author and reproduced from antique originals show festive scenes of children at play, and make delightful decorations which make you really want to smile! One is an outdoor scene of "War Games", complete with a flag, costumes, and a playful pet dog! The other, "In the Playroom", features the family children with rocking horse, dolly in the carriage, marionettes and drums ...one can't help but feel the fun and warmth, and want to cut these for gifts!|
