I am working on something like that now!

In tag for some reason — Fourth grade — we had to do some kind of art project and I ended up picking scherenschnitte My mom likes to remind me occasionally that my teacher was very impressed by my paper cuttings.

That is honestly one of the reasons I chose to go back and dabble in collage in the past few years, and I can see through your comment how the same skills can apply to print carving as well.

I was never overly impressed with my own Scherenschnitte but I think that can just be how it goes sometimes. I honestly don’t overtly love this owl either — but couldn’t tell you what exactly I dislike or anything. This one — I don’t know, still just lacking a little something for me.

I had some trouble remembering which to carve and which should stay, in all honesty! It definitely can be hard to trick your brain to see in reverse like that and I tend to rely a lot on light boards and reference photos.
