Paper cut Portrait - APPA

      This is my first paper cut portrait. I am really happy how it turned out considering I had very little choice of colour paper sheets. Some time back I had seen a video on paper cutting a portrait and since then dreamt of trying it . Today is my dad's first remembrance day and I am not able to visit my mother to observe the day because of the lock down due to COVID-19 . My son helped me in reducing the number of colours in the picture and then print out the pictures . I chose to use five colours . I selected from my stash five colours somewhat close to the ones in the picture and then cut them out. I printed out five sheets of the same picture A4 size one for each colour. stapled the colour sheet with the printed sheet and then cut out the shapes with that colour and then glued them one colour after another on a plain background sheet. It took some time to understand how to glue the colours and how to layer with constant practice I am hopeful of cutting better.
      Most of the sheets were 220gsm or 280gsm making it really hard for me to cut. I have read somewhere that 120gsm is ideal . I am inspired to try more paper cutting although Quilling will always be my most favourite activity.
