Inspired by joyful shapes

paper flower and butterfly

I’ve been having fun playing with paper and scissors lately. Today I have some joyful shapes created from Christmas cards. Sometimes I need to step away from the paint brush and allow myself the freedom to create in other ways.

I get excited playing with paper shapes and gluing together something new and beautiful. It just makes my heart sing.

These little guys make me smile every time I look at them. I plan to use them on a special card.

This flower just needs a stem. I have many options here… paint one, sketch one, or cut one out of paper.

These little birds happened by accident while cutting up this card.

Oh happy day! 😊

I was trying to cut out some leaves and I noticed that a few left over scraps looked like a bird. That inspired me to keep cutting more and more out the same way. After my happy dance, I cut out some little wings and glued them on.

I just love the random colors and patterns on the birds. They too will probably find their way to a pretty card or maybe a new collage piece.

I hope you are inspired to create art and do more of what you love. Keep playing and having fun. Until next time, share a smile and stay excellent!
