Celtic Frame Papercutting by swandog Celtic Frame Papercutting by swandog
Drawing knotwork and making papercuttings are both very theraputic for me (and these past several days I've desperately needed to just shut my brain off from all the horror on the news), so I just combined the two crafts. Here's what's left of my parchment paper, laid on top of decorator paper (not glued down yet). It only took me a few hours, and if you like, please feel free to use this design yourself...It makes a very nice border for a scrapbook, photo, card, drawing or whatever. You'll soon see what plans I have in store for it. :)

P.S. Forgot to mention: the design was adapted from a tattoo I saw, and yes, I used an X-Acto knife. :)

Really well done, Swandog. And I can't agree more art is a therapy.
