I’ve never done a paper cut picture before, and always thought it was something I would try one day. I’m not usually one to start small if large, ambitious and ridiculous is available, so I decided to make an enormous ‘stained glass window’ style paper cut design to fill my studio windows. It’s also nearly Christmas – why not use the windows to wish the whole world glad tidings?
I had a nagging feeling that it would be quicker and easier to write individual greetings cards to the entire human race, but undaunted, I embarked on a marathon of cutting, sticking and problem solving.
It wasn’t always easy, especially when trying to think out how to get the words to read properly. Thinking in reverse made my brain hurt, a bit like parallel parking (that’s another expensive story).
But… Peace eventually reigned in my corner of the world. May it reign for you too.
