I’ve had this little gem stashed in my internet favourites for a while now.

I adore paper art and cut work, such as by artist Rob Ryan, but Naturayarte appeals to my natural sensibilities as well. These designs are not cut into paper, but into leaves collected by the artist. The intricate patterns are beautifully combined with the delicate natural material, and as each leaf is completely unique these are really special pieces.

The original designs have all sold from the website, but can be requested to be cut into new leaves. You can find all the other designs and information about how the artist creates these pieces at the Naturayarte blog.
