First cut

June 21, 2008

Excited to blog bout my new found hobby.. Seriously in need of some other things to do, rather than just read read read and read some more. So, here it goes..

Scherenschnitte…even the name sounds cool. Finding a hard time to pronounce? Hehehe doesnt matter. Some people call it paper cutting or silhouette. But i’ll stick with scherenschnitte for the time being..just love the way it’s spelled and pronounced.

first cut - scissors

Basically, i dont need much stuff to start with. Just a pair of sharp scissors (actually i used more than a pair, i even dig out my eyebrow scissors to umm…u know), papers, some sticky tapes or staples and of course a design. I browse lotsa sites to search for a design i like (I am not particularly good at drawing my own). Lucky me, i found Ellen Brown’s. Credits to her 🙂

In the process of snipping..

And here, the end product.

As you can see, it’s not very smooth..I’m not good with craft knife. My ovals, curves end up squarish. I have time, i’ll master it soon hehehe.. Gambatte
