Modern Paper Cutting

WYCINANKA: Modern "Tree in Art"

I 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.
