Paper Cuts

In an effort to try something new, to play a little more, to expand the way I think... I found a book on the art of paper cutting. I'm always so intrigued by beautiful paper. So, I traced the template onto the backside of the sheet and set to work. It was more difficult than I expected. I had to start over three times before I really got anywhere. I was forced to move slowly and deliberately. Maybe this is a good lesson for my life as well. I remember learning this when i first picked knitting. Anyway, these are my first paper cuts.
