Dinosaurs and Birds...


I've been enjoying making these watercolour sketches this week!

The 'Alternative Dinosaurs' have been popular, and now I offer custom options. 
Here you can see Derek, Poppy, James, Disco Ken, Janet, Hugo and Geoff.
So if you've always wanted to see yourself or a loved one represented as a cute colourful dinosaur, just give a name and a few quirky facts and I will do the rest.
Available here!






If birds are more your style, I have a custom option on the family of birds sketch too. However many members your flock has, they can be represented in watercolour style with shiny foil details.
Get yours now!


I really love making these, the vivid colours are perfect for this season.
Can't wait to see what you come up with for your custom :)

Well, back to it!

Winner winner winner!


Over on t'Book of Face a few days ago, I held a little contest to win one of three of these Hitherto Unseen prints. I asked you give names to the two little toadstool characters, and I've picked my three favourites! 




Ashley Romereim suggested Rua and Tintrรญ, which are Gaelic words meaning red and fiery! Just perfect for these two characters, sums them up perfectly.

Jerome Murphy gave them the names Ceps and Morel, which sound suitably fantasy-like, and are also names of actual mushrooms. Clever!

Gill Walker chose Pinny and Bib, to reflect that they are Crimson Pinafore mushrooms. So cute!

Congrats to all three winners, your prints are on the way!

Thank you to everyone who suggested names, there were so many brilliant ones it was hard to choose just three.

Prints are available to purchase here - Crimson Pinafore

Have a great weekend!

Music is what feelings sound like!


Okay so the photo is pretty terrible but forgive me as I'm relegated to the darkest corner of the house. It could be 30 degrees outside and the photos on my desk would still look like this. Sucks huh? Great in Winter when you can chuck a bit of holly on the corner and et voila, but now? Not so much.

This original sketch, "Music Is What Feelings Sound Like" featuring Olive the snail with little watercolour musical notes is now £100 in the sale, reduced from £160. ๐ŸŒ
I've been dabbling with holographic foil and watercolour today, but you'd already know that and quite possibly would have bagged one for £20 if you were following us on Patreon ๐Ÿ˜œ
*Sashays away*
If you're not lucky enough to bag the original sketch, there's always the template of the same name for you to try. It's a lovely big one, with the opportunity to use lots of colours in the background, while bum-dancing to your favourite tunes! I'd love to see when you've had a go. Share your photos in our friendly Facebook group ๐Ÿ˜Š





I've been busy working on custom sketches for you lovely lot, I'm always intrigued by the design ideas you come up with! Available in ACEO size or a larger square style, if you've ever wanted to see my stretch my drawing fingers beyond the Woodland Friends, get your request in soon.

I'd better get back to it - see you next week!

Paper Panda Newsletter!

On the third Sunday of every month, we will be sending out a newsletter to our subscribers. You can subscribe within your account on our website. The following Friday, I'll be posting the contents of the newsletter here on the blog in case you missed it :)

Welcome back to the Paper Panda newsletter!
After a brief hiatus *ahem* we are back to monthly newsletters again!
Hopefully! ;)


This month we saw the first template totally created by Mr P! It took him around 2 months to perfect these designs, from concept drawings to finished cut - yes, he's quickly becoming an accomplished cutter too - I think they're just stunning.
The collection is called 'Victorian Wild' and this is the first character released as a template - meet Mr Brown the bear.
Doesn't he look dapper in his bowler hat and tie?
Available as a digital template, and a physical kit complete with all the papers you need.





From 25th March to 7th May, Paper Panda papercuts will be exhibited at the picturesque Yorkshire manor house, Nunnington Hall,

alongside fellow paper artists handpicked to exhibit with me.

You'll be able to purchase the papercuts there too!








PAPER FACT!
The largest sheet of handmade paper measures 14.95 x 10 metres and was made by the students of
Colegio Salesiano Don Bosco de Ypacarai, Paraguay, on 7 August 2015.
Around 250 students created the giant sheet of paper from recycled newspaper.
Imagine the frame you'd need for that!


These new sketch prints have been very popular. They're 13cm square and limited to only 30 of each. They come with a mini certificate of authenticity.
We only have a couple left at the moment, which sketches would you like to see in this format next?
Feeling even happier than a hedgehog in a hat!




NAIL POLISH OF THE MONTH!
I love this nail polish by Jessica, it's called Soigne and it's a beautiful pale grey shimmer. Delightful!
And a bargain too!






GUEST ARTIST
Official PP Miniaturist Loz has been at it again!
Her nimble fingers have created some more tiny versions of some favourite Paper Panda designs.
Loz is....just amazing. She may even be better than me, but don't tell her I told you so :)

That's it for now - see you next month!

Surprise Surprise!

The first of a new month has just swung round, and that means a new surprise template! 

It gets better this month as we have also added a new surprise colouring sheet. How 'bout that for a cheeky little addition! 

You can find them both here - http://bit.ly/2mB1mVy


Coming soon! 

Mr Panda has been working on a range of stylistic animals called Victorian Wild. There's four so far. This is Mr Brown in progress and he'll be a template kit available for you to make yourself very soon!
