GLACIER LAKE SCISSORCUT

March 16, 2015

It was exciting to try a three-color scissorcut and see the finished piece. The three layers were cut as separate pieces of paper but had to be aligned so the shorelines matched, and the snow on tree branches allowed white to show through. After cutting the three layers, they were delicately glued together with touches of rubber cement from the tip of a toothpick.  I was pleased with the final result, especially the exquisite detail of the trees and ripple reflections on the lake. I matted and framed (16×20) the piece on Saturday, March 14. Friends at church said it reminds them of the lakes in the Cascade mountains of Oregon, near Mt. Hood or Mt. Jefferson.
