Katrina, most of the paper-cut piece is done now for you. I thought that you probably like colors more than black and white, so I decided to do your piece in the style like I did for the 12 Days of Christmas ones, with printed papers.
|Elements cut out of scrap-booking papers|
The composition includes the elements that you said you liked.
|A girl reading under a tree, with birds on a branch and a pony|
So I did a lot of snipping...
|Including individual leaves|
|With colored pencils and pens|
... to give form and expression...
Then gluing it all together, to make this for you:
|"The Reading Tree"|
|You will note all the words in the papers of the elements, to carry out the reading theme|
|You can read the tree, too|
|The tree and the girl and the grass all have words.|
You should get it at the end of next month, but I thought you'd like to see it before then.
