I’m totally in love with the art of scherenschnitte. Oh Happy Day posted link to Cindy Ferguson’s beautiful papercuttings. I want to draw them and I want to learn how to make them. As soon as I have time.

P.S. The Post/Song title today might seem far-fetched, but there actually is a connection. The song is from “Ragtime”, and is sung by a Jewish immigrant who is a silhouette artist. He and his daughter narrowly escape a rioting mob, and to calm her down he cuts out an image of her ice skating while he sings this song. So it fits, you see? And if you don’t, then YOU come up with a better musical song title for an entry on scherenschnitte.
