I got my scalpel, blades and cutting mat today!! So I dove right in and did a few cuts.
Oh, I haven't mentioned this have I? Right, well I got a bit interested in paper cutting when Hannah was here. We were at a shop in Charlotte called the Paper Skyscraper and Hannah pointed out a Rob Ryan mug. She told me how popular he was in England and said I should look him up. So I did and I totally love what he does.
And it looked not too different than what I was doing with the deco on my pots! So I ordered a scalpel and some blades and a cool cutting mat. "Why a scalpel?"you ask. Why not just use an Exacto knife? Well, first off because R.R. uses a scalpel AND totally because it's much more cool than an Exacto!! "What kind of tool do you use Ron?" "I use a scalpel." "Wow! You're totally rad!" Okay so that's just in my head right.
I did this first.
Which I glued to the wall on top of my favorite Tommy Kane print.
So I'm just fiddling along, I have no books on this or anything, but it seems pretty straight forward so far. I want to make some bigger ones and some circular ones too. We'll see.
