While My Batteries Charge...

I can't take photos of the framed pieces just yet... I let my camera go too long without a recharge... so here, instead, are scans of the four scherenschnitte that I finished today...

"Heart of My Heart", a departure from my usual style of white on black, I used old and naturally aged scrapbook paper at the back and added love poetry torn from a badly damaged book that was printed just after 1900, together with my hand-cut silhouettes of a man and a woman... who just happens to be holding the sweetest old pressed flower in her hand...

"As the Deer"...

"Plumage"...

"Little Girl in Paradise", her silhouette is affixed to a print of old caligraphy embellishments...

I hope to get these listed in my shop this evening or tomorrow, but I'll also gladly make them available before hand if you are interested.

Happy Friday to you all!

I LOVE the little girl in paradise and the first one with the man and woman. So much fun. I tried doing a heart that I found a pattern for online. I decided that I needed a better exacto knife. Whenever I see your work, my fingers just itch to be equally creative. Guess I'll stick to the cross stitch for now :)
