This design -- or at least one quarter of it -- was orginally developed for a screenprinting class I took with Palmarin Merges. I cut a simple stencil out of Contact Paper and then attempted to print it in multiple colors. I also printed it in black and then scanned it into Adobe Illustrator and put it into a pattern. It now looks sort of like a fancy papercut. But it's nothing like the fabulous papercuts of the Englishman, Rob Ryan. Best thing about his papercuts? They come with heartfelt, lovely sentiments expressed in prose. You can see some of his work in his Etsy store and also on his blog which, provides a peak into his studio and his various commercial endeavors.
