Instagram of the week: Beautiful paper cut outs by Laura Gilbert

It's amazing what you find on instagram, I was just sat browsing through what my followers like (sounds more stalker like than it is) and I stumbled across the most incredible paper cut artwork so now I wanted to share her work with you. Laura Gilbert is based in Manchester working a day job as a learning support mentor and at night she is an illustrator and paper cutter, bringing whimsical and macabre images to life in a very unique and precious way. She is my "Instagram of the week" Here are some images from her instagram feed...









I liked her illustrations so much I decided to purchase one from Laura's Etsy Page for my friend's (also called Laura) birthday! Amazingly I was Laura's first Etsy customer yay! (mainly because she takes commissions from instagram) I got the cut out unframed and then I mounted in out 360gms textured paper using little foam pieces to lift it off the page.


A  close up to show how it's slightly lifted on the back card. 

Get following Laura on her instagram page and add her to your favourites on Etsy.
