I tried to photograph the Kirkharle swans this evening as source material for a papercut, but this one was keeping a close eye on me.

Keeping on at the “Winter” papercut. The black lumps are where I’m going to cut very fine and fragile branches. These have to be done at the end otherwise I could break them as I’m cutting the rest. So, this first stage is to cut the bulk of the picture, and then later on I cut the finer parts.

Thought I’d try a new style of papercut. This one’s called African Heat.

Cut a bit more of “Winter” today. If I keep on at this rate it’ll take until winter to be finished!

Been working on the home page of my website. Hope everything is clear. Not easy this website designing. Think I’ll stick with the day job.

The next Tiny Papercut - available tomorrow  - is a Jack Russell with a gold collar. The collar is gold coloured paper cut to fit into a hole cut in the black paper. Similar to a jigsaw piece or a mosaic. It’s not just stuck on top. That would be far too easy. Come to think of it that would be so easy I wish I’d thought of it earlier. Never mind :)
