Since I have to sit at the airport for the next 6 hours ( hoping not to get pulled out for a flight) I decided to spend the time doing some paper cuts :)
Sadly the scanner at my office is not that good..
This is actually what I envisioned when I read the script. At some stage I will put it on a black background.
P.S. I'm taking a small break from hitRECord as I will not have any internet access for a few days :(
Have fun everyone! Will miss you all <3
I had started this a while ago, but wasn't too happy with the original font. So I replaced the lettering.
I wanted to add 'By Metaphorest' but I ran out of place ;)
For some reason it wasn't showing up on a white background, so I had to use beige.
Hopefully if anyone finds this useful, they will be able to change the background colour :)
Another delicious way to use jelly babies, "put it in a trifle" :D
Sponge cake, strawberry custard, whipped cream and two layers of jelly babies! Yummy!!
My niece loves SmudgeofPaint's shadow doodle and wouldn't give me any peace till I did this. (She's learning ballet!)
sojushots & I seemed to have had the same idea!
Extra points if you can identify the jelly baby who thought he was going to a pool party ;D
Sometimes the Tenebrae succeeds in capturing a shadow. He keeps them in a crude cage till he decides what to do with them. No one knows the location of the Tenebrae's lair and the captive shadows pray someone will come to rescue them...
Flockofwords describes a sixth caste of shadow beings, "The Fireflights", shadows cast by fire.
They are the most ancient of the shadows born when prehistoric man invented fire.
They are the guardians of the history of the shadows and the keepers of their secrets. The Fireflights were the original inhabitants of Umbra but were exiled by the Longrays
Maybe the Fireflights will team up with the cunning Tenebrae and terrorize the other shadow beings?
After reading Flockofwords' Shadowplay, this is how I envisioned the Fireflights. I gave them a flame-like appearance ;D
This is my first attempt at drawing a figure
( I know its a bit big, but I know nothing about resizing or photoshop. The actual figure is however, 5.5 inches)
xanlee asked for a paper cut for her tiny story "The Broken Hearted Octopus"
I hope you like it xanlee :D
Amber (ADH) challenged me to do a paper cut of a monster of my choice from her Monster City collab.
I chose MelonBerri's Mokupoku :)
I had SO much fun with this..
I wanted to dream among the twinkling stars
So into the night sky I took a leap
Snuggled together in a cotton candy cloud,
The stars and I fell asleep
Vedder challenged me to do a paper cut of one of Zkarlette's Featured RECords and write a tiny story...
I had done a paper cut version before I saw eaneikciv's illustration. I substituted her little girl drawing, because I preferred it to mine.
My sneezing cloud is very well mannered. He has a cold and uses a handkerchief :)
I hope you like this eaneikciv!

Sundance a tiny story by maryer96
maryer96 challenged me to do a paper cut illustration of any of her tiny stories.
The result of a comment about a bunny in an owl suit made by chuchu for sojushots' illustration.
I happened to have been making bunnies for my niece ;)
map maker map maker make me a map
one to one scale, without single gap
map every rock, every thought, every tree
and erase all the territory.
I paper cut a section of cacheth's "a map without gaps"
(My fingers have gone numb ;D)
Amber asked me to do a paper version of brookeduckart's illustration.
This has been, by far, THE most complicated paper cut I have ever done.
I hope you like it Amber <3
P.S. I like the eye ;D
I really wanted to contribute to this collab.
Since I know nothing about photoshop/videos, I made a paper cut version ;D
I thought noxinova's image would make a great silhouette paper cut.
It might do pretty well for the "Wolves in the Woods" song too ;D
(I do my paper cuts with a scissors. But since I just got a new paper cutting knife, I decided to use that instead. Am still a bit shaky with it!)
christopher. harn is one of my favourite writers on hitRECord and I just love this story
So this is Chestnut after taking a big bite out of the moon ;)
I know Chestnut is supposed to be a big, fat dog. Unfortunately the only dog I had access to was my neighbour's puppy and getting him to sit quietly was a real task!
Inspired by the last two lines of TheSerpentTheCharmer's story.
I liked the imagery of a message in a bottle sailing through the sea...
It's a kitty cupcake!! Sorry I can't send you a real one. Probably won't last the journey from Mumbai to Washington... :D
Happy Birthday G! Hope you have a great time.
I know your birthday is sometime this month, not sure when ;)
Two years ago I joined hitRECord. :D
Thank you everyone for all the support, encouragement, inspiration and of course, the many, many hearts!
Inspired by Robo J's Beat 710(12)....
Like RECularCharlie & AlmostSound, I too imagined floating in space while listening to this...
And for all those who haven't heard it yet: Shame on you!! ;)
Anyways, hope you like this Robo J! :D
Yesterday, birdcage printed out I Am 1954's image and asked me to do it in paper. :D
Of late I have found my enthusiasm and interest in hitRECord decreasing by the day. So I think it's time for me to limit my time on HR.
I'm very grateful to be able to call so many of you my friends and will keep in touch with you via Facebook and Twitter.
This was one of the trickiest paper cuts I've ever done. It took me quite a while too..
A big thank you to Sir Artanon! :D
P.S. The marks that you see here and there are flaws on the paper because the paper I used was handmade (not by me) ... ;)
I dressed gyllenmaya's cute bear bunny in hitRECord colours.
I think he might make a cute mascot along the lines of the REC Robot.
What do you think? ;)
"Are we RECording?" :D
Another possible hitRECord mascot...
Who wouldn't wear a tshirt with this little guy on it??
Just popping in to wish Zkarlette a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!
Thank you for being such an encouraging & wonderful friend! <33
Hope you have a great time and lots of birthday cake!
This is my remix of JenniferChittenden's remix of Amber's remix of my remix of Amber's original profile pic.. ;D
Raggedy witch needs a tiny story.....
I've been making halloween decorations for my aunt's school. I had to make 40 of these!
