Two Repeat Wycinanki

9 03 2009

Inspired by Jackie to peak into the world of papercutting I tried my hand at my first wycinanki. Wichi-what? It’s just the Polish term for paper cutting. But since I’m half Polish I like the term. And chickens.  This little single fold paper cut is based off a design in Folk Art Designs to Color or Cut by Ramona Jablonski. I had no idea before Jackie mentioned it that I could find designs to copy and cut. It’s fun and I want to do another. And another. This one I did completely with scissors. I wonder how I’d do if I got off my lazy bum and pulled out an x-acto to try something a little more complicated? I can tell you this one was more difficult that I expected. I want to do little ones to put on cards and big ones to frame. Oh, I can tell this could be dangerous.

Great job! In the fall, we did a study on Hans Christian Anderson and loved all of his paper cuttings. Yours reminded me of him.

With only scissors! Those little cut-out triangles, too? Now that’s skill. It turned out really nice. Do more! More!

P.S. Forgot to add: Isn’t the weather today lovely? Tra la la! Hope you had a nice day outdoors rather than indoors crafting. Have a great week!

Don’t forget to check out kirigami – folding and cutting. Sounds like it will be right up your alley. I find it wonderfully addicting, soothing, creative!

Trust me it will be very dangerous. And I’ve approached it the complete opposite way – the exacto knife only, but thinking I need to invest in a really good pair of tiny sharp scissors to make better curved cuts.
Love this design!
