2. ‘Birds’ by Brian Wildsmith (1969), The First Cut

Having recovered from the initial shock of cutting up this already broken book, I now feel excited about its new life. I have spent the weekend and most of today cutting out little squares, trying to include as many of the illustrations as  possible. For strength, I always mount each section onto old Christmas cards before cutting down to the desired size.

The next few days will be spent cutting up cereal boxes. My least favourite part – at least after the first 30 or so!

I have quite a few scraps left. Not sure how to utilize these yet.

The scraps...

The scraps…
