Birds and Carving

I love birds, I wish I was one. Feathered, able to fly although I don’t think I would like winter outside 😦

I love carving with a craft knife, the way the knife slides through the paper then round the corner smoothly. I use a craft knife but I have seen people use scalpels and I wonder if they are better. If anyone uses a scalpel I would be interested in your opinion. It seems they have various types of blades and they are expensive but if overall they do a better job then I would invest in one.

Papers of course is a passion, handmade, commercial and even brown paper is becoming an interesting medium for me. I saw on pinterest beautiful wrapping paper made from brown paper and drawn on with a white gel pen. I am going to try it for Christmas.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the lovely bloggers who have left likes and comments on this blog and my other two and I hope I have thanked you all personally but if I have missed anyone then a big thank you is right here 🙂
