More Hans Christian Andersen

My ATC trade this month is based on the papercuts of Hans Christian Andersen.

These are not exact copies of his work, but they are bits and pieces that I put together in different ways.

I like how he kept his cuts so simple. It is hard for me to do that.

He often gave his cuts away. You can tell that he really liked dancers. I placed a cut rocking chair in each of these cards/envelopes for an extra bonus.

I was browsing Amazon the other night for books on scherenschnitte. I saw one or two based on his work. Maybe I should go give them another look. jan
