Work In Progress
Well I have been thinking about some new ideas for cards for a little while now and tonight have finally put them together in my journal. I have been working with paper cut outs, something which I really enjoy.
I love the intricacy of cutting out the smaller pieces and layering them with different colours to produce something quite simple.
I guess to me cut outs are not dissimilar to collages, something I worked with a lot a few years ago, and I recently saw some of Henri Matisse's cut outs in this which are so amazing.
I love the way he could make somthing so beautiful with a simple piece of coloured paper.
Oh by the way please excuse the bad photographs, I might take some another time in better light to show you.
