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!
