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.
So here's what the book page looks like once the cutting is done. So cute, right?
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.
And onto a different art journal page this cut piece goes ... just a beginning. It'll evolve more from here I'm sure.
Happy crafting. :)
