This past month I delved into two media that I've been somewhat neglecting recently: papercutting and oil pastels. Read below for more.
Guerilla PapercutsI coined a term last month: guerilla papercut. See if you can guess why! Last month, I made four of these, incorporating the recipients' names and other precious information into the designs, and then cutting them with a super-sharp exacto knife. Here are links to the pictures: Read about them all in detail here.

Oil Pastel DrawingsEven though I've used oil pastels to great success in the past, I somehow left my two sets of colors to lie fallow for quite a while now. This month I took them out and dusted them off, inspired initially by the photography of Mary Schwalm. My favorite of the month was the elephant, who poses on the right. There were quite a few others as well.
Coming Up Next Month...
