Happy Blog Birthday #9

Cut Paper Doodles
Cut Paper Doodles

For it’s birthday, I’ve made this nine-year old blog  a  pop-up card, inspired by Arno Célérier, whose work I saw on David A. Carter’s facebook page. I generally don’t spend much time making pop-ups, but I do like cutting paper. Sometimes, while sitting having morning coffee with my husband, I cut silly little shapes from any paper that near me, just because I like the activity of cutting. Then I throw the shapes away. 

Seeing Arno Célérier’s work has made me think about assembling these little paper doodles into pop-up cards.

 

 

Paper Doodle Pop-up Card

The  assemblages above is to celebrate nine years of blogging.

On this same date, in 2014, four years ago, I started engaging on twitter, so it’s a four-year old birthday for @paulakrieg. Here’s my birthday card to my twitter handle.

I’m liking having been inspired to play in this way.

Happy Birthday to all!

    1. Thanks Jen. Yes, Matisse! I love the cut out works that he did late in life. I have his book Jazz, & other books with his cut outs in them, but, oddly I hadn’t been thinking of him when I’ve been doing these cut pieces. I’ve admired his cut paper work for so many years that now maybe Ive integrated some of his exuberance into my work. I do want to keep making these. I have to figure out a way to organize the materials otherwise there’s scraps of paper everywhere.
