Letting the light through

The skinny cuts seems to have held together, nothing ripped or distorted too terribly much. Next step will be figuring out what color to tint the paper and the overall size/shape. More to contemplate through the weekend. Fortunately, I’ll be working on research for the project while getting away for a few days.

    that’s a lot of cutting!
    I like the handwriting much better than the font.

      Yes, the handwriting is the way to go. Much more personal and human. 🙂

      Copious amounts of photos were taken and now my brain is over saturated. Time for digesting and figuring out what’s really important and how best to bring out that idea. Photos to come! 🙂

    Such a small difference, but yes, the handwriting make this powerfully more human.

      I agree. Now I want to shift the last line about 1/2″ to the left so certain letters above read better. I’ll get there eventually!

      Thank you. The break was primarily spent on chores around the coast house. However, we did get up into the forest and down to the beach. Research has started but now my brain doesn’t know what direction to take!

    Really nice! I’ve done a lot of “word art” and a lot of art using X-Acto knives and I so admire your way of joining the two.

      Thank you. I really need to shift the last line to the left a bit. I’ll probably be recutting this one again. 😉
