I’ve got a soft spot for artists working with paper, so these incredible pieces from Sarah Dennis in the UK are new favorites of mine. I love the way sky and water animals meet in the piece above; it’s such a beautiful take on nature, and the intricate details are stunning. Click here to see more of Sarah’s work online and check out many more paper-cut pieces of hers. xo, grace

    I’ve recently started paper cutting, and it’s my biggest stress reliever. I recently gifted a personal papercut I created to my friend for her wedding. So glad to see designsponge feature paper cutting.
