"Let It Snow" #10 in Bird Cage Series Paper Cut Scherenschnitte


"Let It Snow" is number ten in my new series titled "Bird Cage". The different elements for this papercut were cut from Canson paper using scherenschnitte scissors ans X-Acto knife. A new #11 blade is used with a self healing cutting mat underneath the paper. The elements were assembled in layers. The back of the bird cage is placed in position, including the ladies shoes. The tree and deer were adhered with Elmer's Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive. Very small circles were stamped out of white paper with a variable hole punch for the snow, and the same for the red cranberries on the tree. These elements were carefully adhered with paper cement using a toothpick, and placed using tweezers. The remaining bird cage pieces, including the ladies silhouette were added using the spray adhesive . "Let It Snow" measures approx. 8" x 3", and has been mounted on a 10" x 8" 140lb archival off white watercolor paper.
