Prawns Picks #3…Ellen Giggenbach…

prawns picks3-01My Prawn’s Pick this month is my absolute favourite find…I think maybe I’m a little slow on the up take, as after finding Ellen’s gorgeous shop on Etsy I cyber-snuffled about a bit – in the manner of a truffle-pig snuffling in the woods – and turned up tonnes of amazing bright, folky, paper cut products. Oooo the joy! This is the beauty of Etsy I think, you stumble upon people who’ve been slogging away making beautiful things for years on the other side of the world. The only thing is it’s seems to be mostly luck and flook that brings them to the surface…I only hope The Crafty Prawn gets snuffled out by some cyber-truffle-pigs sometimes. Anyway, enough random metaphors, here is just a fraction of the gorgeous ‘modern, folk, cut paper art prints, crafts and pillows’ that you can find in Ellen’s shop…

Prawns Picks #3…brings you Ellen Giggenbach
So if the the medley of  gorgeous mid-century photograph props aren’t enough to make you go weak at the knees; the fact that all Ellen’s products start life as a hand paper cuts/paper assemblages, using paper that she’s coloured herself – will surely do the trick. I love the pops of colour, the slightly 50’s illustrative style and the folky subject matter. Of course, anything illustrated alphabet really floats my boat (see more of that here and here) let alone an animal alphabet, so I love the L for Lion. Apart from art prints and wall decalls, you will also find very cool do-it-yourself paper sculpture kits to create 3D animals of all sorts including an owl, a pussycat and their boat; AND fabric craft kits to sew your own little lady doll.
