Cut Outs

My daughter and I have been playing with cutout paper and glue sticks and have made some really fun things together. I do the cutting. My little one tells me what to cut out and does most of the gluing.

I'm delighted with the results of our collaboration. I would never think of adding an orange plane to the pretty scene with flowers and my sense of composition is much less free. Leave it to a three year old to ignore convention and "good taste" and come up with something really interesting.
