AVIARY TREE WYCINANKA
I folded the blue paper in half lengthwise and drew half of the design on the white background with pencil. I then proceeded to cut out all of the negative spaces with fine point very sharp scissors, as are used for embroidery or scherenschnitte. I like cuticle scissors the best. When the design was unfolded, it revealed the completed Tree of Life with roosters and birds in the tree and on the ground. I found a piece of scrapbooking paper that had the golden squiggles on it and felt that it gave my cutting the whimsy that I was looking for and it made the blue color POP!
