Welcome to my blog! I'm Vanessa Stone and I am a paper cutting artist living in the beautiful village of Bottesford in the Vale of Belvoir. I make hand cut collages to capture the pared down essence of England's amazing places, spaces & heritage around me. This blog will show you all sorts of things... workshops I have done, places that inspire me and things that grab my eye.....

Grabbing a moment to sketch at Hampton Court Palace - Wilderness Garden
And this was the drawing I managed to quickly do in the Wilderness Garden. We visited with friends, so lots of chatter and not much time to draw. I managed to get some time to sit when everyone else was in the maze - mazes stress me out!! - and I can't tell you how lovely it was. Daffodils as far as I could see and just people mooching about. Lots of people photographing themselves and their children surrounded by the yellow flowers. Its so important to plug into nature I think. I had to rush the pic.....sketch out of focus sadly! Ooops!
