Karen Bit Vejle - Psaligrafi


Psaligrafi literally means to draw or paint with scissors, in other words, the Art of Patience.

Karen Bit Vejle's papercuts are performed from a large, continous piece of paper that is folded one, two and three times and then cut using only a pair of scissors.

Every cut is carefully planned and the slightest mistake would mean disastrous results.

This reminds me of the white paper project I have my students do. It's their first project. I grade them on craft, depth and creativity. They have to make an animal out of white paper in relief form. Some of them are amazing! I get better ones every year.
