Some time ago I deceided to give papercutting a try (I usually embroider and cross-stitch). I started out with some patterns made by Elsa Mora but I soon wanted to try out one of my own drawings.

This is the result:



Cutting out the different parts was very relaxing actually:). I used a drawing, but most of the shapes in the hair are freehanded.

I then deceided to use the cut out parts for this tree:



All in all it was a nice experiment to try out, I think I have found myself a new hobby Cheesy. I have some mixed feelings about the end result though, because I had something a bit different in mind, but I guess I can live with it Wink. On to the next project, probably a drawing made by my sister  Smiley
