Behind The Scenes: Now Magazine Papercuts

As promised, some behind-the-scenes photos from my recent commission by Now magazine. The task was to create a papercut winter wonderland for a beauty photoshoot. Such a fun job! Storeyshop HQ had to move in to my kitchen for extra space as this project turned out to be quite large in scale. I mocked up the size of the beauty gift sets to be included in the winter scene (biggest was A4 size) in cardboard so I could get the sizes right and did lots of extra trees and snowflakes for flexibility when the papercut shoot took place. Even more mess than usual was created along the way. I was still finding little bits of white card throughout the house (and in the wash) weeks later! The final printed feature is shown in the previous post...

Storeyshop Papercuts in Now Magazine!

Yay, I've been looking forward to seeing this! The reason I was lost for a few days under piles of white paper last month: My papercut winter wonderland for Now magazine! It's a beauty feature in the bumper Christmas issue 2011. I loved cutting this commission and it definitely got me feeling festive earlier than usual. I really like how it looks with the products included between the hills too, as I stared at it for days just in white with cardboard mockups of the lovely products. As I was cutting, I took lots of photos so I'll add them soon, too.
