Papercutting Tutorial

I've been doing some papercutting lately. It's so fun and easeir than I thought. Just takes some patience is all.

For this project, I used a small paintbrush and sumi ink to write the word "love" onto a book page. I made sure that all the letters were connected to each other so that when I cut it out, the letters would all be connected. Then I taped that page onto a piece of sheet music. I placed the layers of paper onto a self-healing mat and then very carefully, used my sharp craft knife to cut the word out.

But what's also cool is that because I placed a layer of sheet music beneath the book page, I end up with two sets of cut-outs that I can use in my artwork.

Here's what I did with one of the pieces ... I added it to one of my art journal pages. So happy with how the page looks with the addition.
