Kayla (Ya Head) Kerbs :: Skull

by Ya Head Designs

As promised, here is my skull. Created in the Scherenschnitte style; this piece is comprised of one black piece of card-stock overlaying one piece of tracing paper. “Scherenschnitte” means “paper-cuts” in German and is forged by slicing and subtracting small regions from a single sheet of paper to generate a larger image. Here, I designed a mosaic-like skull, held together by a serpentine ribbon. Once the black cut-layer was completed, I selectively colored each space with watercolor markers on a single piece of tracing paper. The final result has a stained glass effect when held up to the light. Pretty neat right?
