Modern Paper Cutting
WYCINANKA: Modern "Tree in Art"
sketched a tree on white computer paper, drawing it from the roots up
to the branches. Then I placed three pieces of colored paper under it
and stapled them together. I cut all four trees out at the same time.
Then I started to arrange the trees side-by-side, above and below
vertically, and then decided on a random placement. I used rectangular
and square pieces of many colors of paper, placing them behind the trees
until I liked the look and feel of the scene. Having glued everything
in place, I can feel sky, grass, leaves, fields, and other scenery
around the trees, exactly what I was thinking.
