Scherenschnitte - Nancy Michalak

By Ann Martin @allthingspaper
Paper cutting has been featured here quite often, but this is the first time I've seen the cutting as an overlay atop a realistic background. Just look at the depth in this piece!Created by Nancy Michalak of Maine, it's lovely the way she melds the colored landscape with the German folk art technique, scherenschnitte. The sheep still need shearing and the trees are just beginning to leaf out... it must be early spring. Such detail, especially when you consider Nancy created the symmetrical image with just one piece of folded paper (and lots and lots of snips!)Nancy's Etsy shop is ShadyRunStudios.Facebook Finds this past week:Eye-catching quilled masksDIY paper lanterns with fabric appliquesClever things to make with a circle punchAn online course to learn modern calligraphyStriped state and country maps to print out, alter, and frameHave a great weekend!
