Adventures in Paper Art!

After watching a demo on how to do this paper cut out stuff (I'm not sure what it's referred to as...) from Brittney Lee a few weeks ago, I had to try it out. This is a gift for my dad. His birthday was a few days before mine in April... so yet again, retroactive... Sigh.

I had bought only a few color card options to work with so before I started cutting, I crudely did some experiments in photoshop to see what would look best. Here's a few of what I considered...

I ended up going with this one.

Then I started thinking about composition... did I really want it this simple? This was too easy, I wanted to do something else. So I added a cactus.

And hopefully, this is the route your eyes take...

I'm looking forward to doing this activity again in the future!

This is really cool! I've been meaning to do this since I discovered that Brittney Lee is amazing :D
Yours turned out really cool! I'm definitely going to try my hand at this this summer
Also... I accidently posted this under John's name... and then deleted it when I realized... so thats why you may have a jumbled message from John :)
