30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge: Day 13

Cut Paper Collage

So here we have more experimenting... and yeah, I know that this isn't technically a "painting."  But I have been reading a lot about German Scherenschnitte cut paper designs.  I am going to incorporate the style into my shadow puppetry theater project that I am going to start on next month.  This came together pretty quickly and was super fun, but I don't have the fancy pants super small scissors.  It is the fine details that make the Scherenschnitte designs so awesome.  Maybe I'll do a month long Scherenschnitte 30 day challenge and conquer this beast.

Did I mention that Scherenschnitte is fun to say?  Try it three times fast.

If you want to conquer fear, don't sit down and think about it.  Go out and get busy.
