Bunny on Swing

Papercutting . . . because I really need another
craft to add to the list.

I started to get interested in papercutting after I signed up to get mailorder #8 from the Angry Chicken. (Wow - that's a weird sentence). After trying out papercutting, I was amazed at how easy it was to get a fairly decent looking piece of art with few tools (pattern, exacto knife, paper, magazine as cutting board) and a short period of time. This can be my go to craft for last minute gifts and simple re-decorating for my house and office.

I am really inspired by the papercuts of Elsa Mora and I own a few pieces. I love the otherworldly look of her artwork.

To further myself along, I have signed up for a class later this month at Asheville BookWorks. The teacher will be Beatrice Coron and I can't wait to learn from her. I've never taken a class like this before; it's going to be an adventure.
