WOYWW [171]

Today I'm showing the beginning of a little scenario I am making up, using cut paper [scherenschnitte] characters. The paper is Ingres in the colour black. It is so fine and so strong and so opaque that it's perfect for this project I am working on. Here we have 'fairyyellowbug' dressed up in a custom dyed black frock and wearing custom dyed velvet shoes. She is the master of ceremonies and is giving one of the workers last minute instructions:
Here is a longer shot because I just had to show you what else sits on my work spot this week. A vase filled with delicious glorious fall dahlias from the farmer's market:
Julia hosts this fun event every Wednesday. There's a bounty of work spaces to view and to see where people work, just go visit Julia and she'll have the links for you. There's an amazing array in which to partake!!
Thanks for dropping in today, and I hope I'll be seeing you again soon, hugs Norma, xo


  1. a fairy-tale in the making and flamboyant dahlias, this looks like cozy working, x

  2. Very intriguing Scherenschnitte but I can't take my eyes from this incredible gorgeous dahlias what wonderful colours/shapes it makes fall instantly to a favorite time of the year, although I'm a spring type I have to admit.
    Nice Woyww-day!

  3. We love those images, would be interesting to see what you produce with them.

  4. I love it, I'm very curious to what you're going to do with them! It's a bit scary as well, the worker looks cute;-)

  5. Great cutting, not something I have tried, but have a very old book about the history and how to do. Lovely dahlias, reminds me of the Dahlia garden in my home town of Hamburg. Francesca #94

  6. Scary, scary cutout - brilliant. I love dahlias but don't like the earwig bugs that seem to live in ours!! x Jo

  7. Great fairytale and those flowers are to die for.

  8. I think your characters are brilliant ... they remind me of the shadow picture stories of my childhood.#81

  9. Scherenschnitte - what a fascinating technique, Norma! I hope we get to see the final project. I needed this dahlia color burst on a RAINY morning here. xxoo, sus

  10. Great characters! That looks awesome and I'm so jealous you have beautiful fall flowers to enjoy. There is no such thing as fall in Florida so I have to live vicariously through others.... Happy WOYWW! Tammy #121

  11. Oooooh, dear Norma,
    your beautiful book has arrived!
    Thank you very much! I am over the moon!

    And here starts something different but even beautiful. A bit of Halloween...
    Beautiful dahlias... connects continents.

  12. wonder-wonder-wonderful! your scherenschnitt and the dahlias! :-) mano

  13. Wow, Norma, amazing cut out!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  14. Such detailed cut-outs, wow! Those dahlias are gorgeous--my husband's grandfather used to win ribbons year after year at the state fair for his dahlias!

    Happy WOYWW!

  15. Ohmy word, however early it feels, those flowers are fall in it's glory, huh! Love the scherenschnitte - they do say, if the broom fits..!
    About my desk..the flat tray with funnel type hole at the end...you were very close..I use to catch excess powders when heat embossing, funnel for putting excess back in the pot. A genuinely invaluable tool. My word, I may need to blog about it!

  16. Your shadow works draw the looker in for sure. Your descrition brings them to life.
    AWESOME- keep smiling and creating, can't wait to see the finished piece

  17. This is very interesting that is for sure, I will have to come back now and find out exaclty what you are upto. Love the flowers they are really beautiful.

    Thanks for sharing and happy WOYWW

  18. Those dahlias are gorgeous! Your cutting is so intricate: I tried to do a similar kind of thing for xmas cards last year but failed with aching hands!!

  19. Lookin good :) Love having a peek into the spaces of fellow crafter's! If you happen to peek in on my blog, be sure to wear a hard hat! LOL!
