Scherenschnitte template: Girl feeding a chicken

Papercut of a girl feeding a chicken

For the last two Fridays I’ve created new wall pieces, first a papercut with elephants (“Abatee”) and next a girl feeding a chicken (“Early Bird”).

For those of you interested in the craft of Scherenschnitte I thought you might enjoy cutting the main layer of Early Bird as a standalone piece.

Inspiration – Chris Natrop

I’ve followed LA artist Chris Natrop for a couple of years. He makes stunning 3d installations often featuring cut paper.

Below is an image from his 2007 Pulse New York booth. Gorgeous! I’d love to see his pieces in person.
