After last week’s great reception to my post explaining Making Friday, I’m under pressure to follow up, aren’t I?
Well, here goes, with a post about using the side effects of the thing you’re making (just for fun) to make something else just for fun. More fun? I’m in.
So, just as I didn’t throw away my linocut shavings before I’d messed around with them (remember my hipsters and the shaggy dog animation?), this time, I’ve been playing with the bits cut away from the papercut I’m working on.
Teasing them out of the pile, I found I really like the shapes! And although I made them, they’re definitely not shapes I might have drawn or cut otherwise, which makes them even more interesting to play with.
I like them! If you do too, you can download either version as a screen wallpaper for your phone or computer monitor. I already did.
