Leaving Las Vegas


Before my parents moved out of my childhood home in Las Vegas, I snapped a few pictures of the things I loved about the area. One of my favorite birds in the area is the Mourning Dove and luckily they were perched in abundance on a telephone pole right in our front yard. This picture of this scherenschnitt looks a lot cooler than what it actually turned out like, but it still looks pretty great in real life.

hi cindy-
i have been following your work for a while now and *love* it!
question- i am wondering how you display your pieces? frames? does it depend on the piece? maybe you could blog about this topic at some point...
keep inspiring with your paper talents.
oh, and do you have any suggestions for getting started? books to read, etc?

Camie, it generally does depend on the piece, sometimes I get frames to match the art, sometimes I make the art and put it in a custom frame.

For books to read, I got a lot from the library and googled a lot on the internet. It still seems like there's not a lot on traditional techniques out there. Maybe I'll make one!

Wow, I totally thought that was a photograph and didn't even imagine it was a paper cutting.
