Kirigami update 2
Just a quick post today as I wanted you to update you on my Kirigami-a-day project. It's going well and I look forward to those moments of calm cutting out each day. Here's what the past 2 weeks have brought.
11 January, above, was a snowflake design which reminded me of a spiral of coral.
12 January: What do you see in this this one? I see ladies with bouffant hairstyles, arms raised, holding hands!
13 January and possibly the most boring pattern so far. It was meant as an introduction to using fancy-edge scissors - mine are deckle - but surely it could have been a more interesting design?
15 January: Now this is more like it! One of my favourites so far.
You might have noticed I missed 14 January. Well, there was no kirigami that day - just instructions on creating a cutting surface for a craft knife, which we'd be using for...
...16/17 January. Not the most exciting of patterns. I need to work on my craft knife skills though as the cutting came out a bit scruffy.
19 January: reminded me of a cog.
20 January: great excitement as it was the first of the pop-out designs. There are a lot fancier ones to come :)
21 January: this reminded me of a stained glass rose window.
22 January: lots of rotating suns.
23/24 Jan. Oh no, a boring one to end the week.
I hope you're enjoying the updates. I fear that writing about kirigami is much less engrossing than actually doing it :( However, for my own records, I'm going to continue to post a photo of each design. There are some lovely ones to come too. x
