Paper Cutting



I often wonder about the power of imagination. Few drops of imagination transforms simple and ordinary things into something beautiful. Simple things that we use in our daily life takes different turn with the magic of Imagination. And what captured my attention this time is Paper......yes paper. Who doesn't remember tearing pages from a note book to make paper boats on a rainy day or making small flags or cutting paper just for fun? So this is what happened last week, my daughter was completely lost in her world... sitting on her bed with bunch of colourful construction papers and glitters to make some greeting cards. Looking her cutting different shapes of paper, fueled my fancy and I thought why not let's try some paper cutting. Things went well and I enjoyed it completely... here are some of my experiments…





Stage 1: I tried first on the greeting card paper ....drawing part was easy..




Stage 2:
Second part was cutting... not so easy....but love doing it.


Stage 3:


now... job done







Stage 4:

love the pink colour in the background.
