The amount of patience you have is staggering. I would have gone crazy. Well worth it. It's amazing!

 Oddly enough i actually found the process to be quite relaxing! I had no pattern I was following so the whole thing was really very freeform and fun to make!

SO COOL!! I wouldnt even know how to start a project like this. Great job! Smiley

This was actually the first paper cut project I had ever made! I was just looking at a picture of a parrot and sketched out a few outlines but pretty soon it all became freehand. Pretty sure my roomate thought I was crazy..  Roll Eyes

Oh, wow!  He's so pretty!  The feathers are super impressive.  Did you use markers to accent the edges?

I did use markers on the edges! I thought the layers blended into each other a bit too much without an outline.

Hello all!
So I made this little doozy (potentially) for my art portfolio, but for whatever reason Im just not sure about it! Im not sure if the light takes to much away from the detail of the moth orrr whaaat! Let me know what you think of the composition and if you think it should just be a stand alone piece!



and the moth alone!



I donno! Maybe its too much contrast?? Maybe im over thinking things! Any type of feedback would be greatly appreciated!
----UPDATED 1/14/12--------
A bit of toying around with some velum,wire and contact paper and i came up with this, not sure if i love it but I think im getting closer.  The contact paper i colored yellow and by accident part of it stuck to some school work, leaving then impression of writing, but i decided i liked the effect and applied words to the rest of the swirl.

This winter I'm applying for the art program at my college so i've been building up a nice portfolio this past month. I made some hand carved stamps to go inside  Not sure if this is technically a paper craft but you stamp onto paper right!
