Fairytale Illustration: Sleeping Beauty by Rose-Ann-Mary-K Fairytale Illustration: Sleeping Beauty by Rose-Ann-Mary-K
This is the second of a Paper Cutting-series I've started, the first Fairytale illustration was Cinderella: [link]

I wanted to combine the Disney with the original fairytales from books, which are completely different.
As a reference I made a lot of stains, showing how bloody the original stories are. The moon and the sun are the the twins Sleeping Beauty has in the original of Giambattista Basile's 1634 "Sole, Luna e Talia."

Time: 7 hours
Media: Watercolour + Paper
Size: A4

Cinderella: [link]

Hi- I hope you don't mind, I used your image for a blog post at sorcerers-stone.net. If you wish, I can remove it. Obviously I think it's pretty darn great. Colleen Szabo

The varying effect of the watercolour really makes this stand out - its subtle so the cut details aren't lost . I think it's great

I commend anyone who can get paper to behave for them while cutting out fantastic detail like this! I'm just to brute for the lovely craft. Love the addition of the old style fairytale elements! Absolutely gorgeous work.

What would be interesting is if you could do a fairy tale scene on a black paper and have it on a revolving lamp that changes color like i've seen on youtube. It would be fun to see the story evolve off the wall. Your possibilities are endless with your skills.I bet what ever you choose will be beautiful, and I will be watching and look forward to see what you come up with!

Woaw! Thank you so much for this giant inspiration-boost! This is a brilliant idea! I love the use of light in combination with papercuttings. Could you send me the link of the YouTube video you metion? I'm really curious now! Thank you so much for the compliments, and for the tip! It makes me want to start another one straight away!
