Helo frends. Here are some examples of what I've been up to lately. These are collages I've made from cutting up paper with an exacto knife. There's about a 1-2 inch accumulation of paper shreds covering my work area as a result.

They're pretty simple but I really like that aesthetic for some reason. I also like bird cages, couldyoutell? Suggestions on possible subjects for future compositions are encouraged! I want to do some of those layered 3-d paper art scenes, too, that go in shadow boxes. Oh the possibilities!

wow. paper amazingness. i wonder if you could do this type of thing with foam squares between each layer... so that it would have more of a 3-d look and would look different at an angle. then you could frame it in a shadow box. oooo.


**EDIT
hey, maybe i should have read your text first. haha
