Crafting to keep insanity at bay.

I have fallen in love with topography art - just something about how the lines move is so beautiful. I wanted to create some art to emulate that so I came up with this:

I cut a stack of Rives BFK cotton fiber paper (super awesome paper, great for printmaking as well as for art purposes in general) and started cutting. It was done randomly, I think next time I might try to have an intentional shape or subject to drive the overall appearance.  







And here's a weird picture my camera + photo processor came up with. I thought it was appropriately arty lol.

That's amazing!  It turned out beautifully!

Is the stack of paper glued together somehow?
