НОВИ ЛИЦА / NEW FACES



Засега следвам без усилия намерението си да режа поне по едно лице всеки ден. Толкова ми е приятно, че ако имам много хартия и много време, бих рязала, докато ми излязат пришки!:D


I've been following without any special efforts my decision to make papercuts every day, if possible. I have the feeling that I could cut and cut without a rest if I had enough time and lots of paper!:D


Ще пиша скоро за това как изпратих Старата и как започна Новата година за мен.
I will write soon about how 2013 ended and how the New Year began for me.
Надявам се, че всички сте добре!:)))))))))
Hope you are all doing well!:)))

    1. Thank you, Tammie!:))) To be honest, I like some of these ones, too and take them out of the box from time to time, just to see them again!...

  3. I like your paper cuts a lot! I wonder how they will develop if you continue to make them. You are very good at it, if I start cutting something it mostly goes wrong;-)
    ( and I wanted to thank you for your comment on my post about my mother. You made me think about what you wrote about this new presence of absence….. that kind of helped me and I think I try to look at it that way, thank you my friend!!)

    1. I have some suggestions on how they will develop. I have tried already some new kinds... But I haven't explored the face cutting yet. Thank you for encouraging me, Celine!
      What about our dear, unforgetable mums... I've realised that strange thing about the presence in the absence maybe a week ago and felt a little bit better for the first time... So glad you felt it too.:)

  4. Excellent, my dear R!
    Yes, I am convinced that you can, what you propose, you succeed!
    And I'm convinced that coonstante activity improves outcome. without any doubt.
    I see that not only you cut faces there is also a body with arms and hands! Excellent! and could you add the legs cut and pasted in a different color, why not, a collage of paper cutouts?
    Why not, why not, and why not? (This is my secret formula)
    I want to see more!!!!
    a big kiss as Everest!
    (Do not forget that about an exhibition in an art gallery!) WN? (why not? :)

    1. You will see more, my dear Roberto!:)
      I can cut a whole body from one sheet of paper and I've done it not once or twice. Now I'll cut some, using different colours, especially for you!:)
      You are right about the practice - it always gives a good result - in everything! For example: in one of the orphanages in Kenya there was one boy (14-15 years old) who manipulated, all alone, a big puppet of a prince. It's very difficult to let such a big figure walk. Well, as he practised nearly every day, he became better and better and finally he was doing it amazingly well!!!
      About an exhibition... Hmmm. We'll see... While dreaming, I'll begin to ask myself "WN"..:D
      Thanks for the BIIIIIG kiss!
      Sending you kisses, too... xxx

  5. They are such a range of expressions. I can't help wondering what you were thinking as you were cutting each one. Hope all is well with you. xxx

    1. I'm O.K., thank you, actually quite busy with puppet performances, children theatre studios and a new project, knocking on the door...
      Well, after cutting the eyes, I already see almost clearly the character... I'm happy you like my papercuts, Charlotte!:)

  6. What a cast of characters you are creating, dear Rossichka! Each one surely has a distinct personality, but I can imagine some of them being from the same family. Will any of these families be having pets?

    There is no end to the possibilities of this paper cutting, is there?

    1. What a sweet idea! I'll have a look and will try to gather the families, otherwise someone may suffer... But let's cut some more faces first, because some of the family members probably stay imprisoned in the paper.:) Pets? O.K., I'll investigate who they are.:D
      Thank you, Frances, for the encouragement and the inspiration!:)

  8. What interesting faces you have cut out :)

  9. Dear Rossi, what a wonderful parade of faces! They are all so different, yet I have the feeling that I am starting to know them. You have a personal style. I still do not understand how you do it. When you are cutting you have the paper folded, I think, so you only see half a face. How do you know what the outcome will be? Or is it a surprise to you too when you see the whole face? I find them very festive together. You could make a special garland of them. Keep cutting, dear friend. atch your fingers! Kiss, Hedwig.

    ОтговорИзтриване
  10. Dear Hedie, there's always a surprise for me. Especially now, when I'm exploring different kinds of eyes, for example. If I repeat a technique, only the size and the facial expression could be different. Oh, and the hair... At first I rejected in my mind the idea for a garland (from a technical point of view). But then I thought I could try it, thank you! Your encouraging opinion means much to me!!!xox

  11. I'm enjoying each personality you have created, Rossichka. Amazing how you can change an expression completely just by cutting a different slant to the eye.

  12. A big "thank you!", Robyn! I'm enjoying them, too, like a child!:)

  13. Très beau travail, et quellle recherche dans l'expression des masques. Remarquable. Je voulais ajuter que mon coeur bat aussi pour la Bulgarie, car mon filleul, marié à une Bulgare, et leur enfant, vivent dans ton beau pays depuis de nombreuses années.
    Bien amicalement.

    1. Quelle belle surprise!! C'est petit le monde, n'est-ce pas?
      My dear mother was a teacher in French! She adored France and the French culture and transmitted that love on her pupils...
      http://rossichka.blogspot.com/2013/10/emptiness.html
      So I love the French language and have a very special attitude towards it, too. Only that I haven't practiced it since a long time...
      I suppose that the Bulgarian nature would be a source of inspiration for you.
      Thanks for visiting et pour les beaux mots!:)

  14. Hey! How are you???
    Rossi: the artist who makes magic with a piece of paper, Rossi: creator of surprises ha ha!
    (I was reading the comment of H and your reply, haha)

    increasingly I feel like working again with clay and glazes. the bowl with a cat and birds, has a technique called "engobe" in which you color the clay, paint with a brush and then with a sharp point, you draw. the white line is the clay that forms the body of the bowl, you understand? this technique of drawing is called "sgraffito" esgrafiado en spanish.
    Thanks for your comment!
    a kiss cuted on a sheet of paper colored ....green!!!!!

    1. I'm blushing-blushing...:) But, to tell you a secret, the paper faces around me become more and more! My husband bought me today another, bigger cube of small coloured papers - hurrah!
      Everything, connected with clay, sounds interesting to me! I'm impatient to see what you will create after so many years? Meeting an old love sometimes is quite exciting, isn't it...!
      A green kiss? Hmmm, let me see.... if I take the scissors and choose a green sheet of paper...???

      Have a lovely weekend, my friend!xx

  15. I imagine you Rossichka, sitting on the floor in a sea of paper faces, looking for your special scissors that got lost somewhere in that ocean of paper. It's good to read how you enjoy doing this. Goodnight, dear friend!

  16. Oh, what a sweet image!:DD I would like to sit in a sea of paper cuttings, yes! Only that I need more free time to do that. Now, although I'm very busy writing a dramatization, I papercut in between and it keeps me in a good mood!
    Oh, my special scissors (you remembered that?) seems to be lost forever!:((
    Have a nice Sunday, Hedie!!!!xx
