Scherenschnitte and 52Q ~ Week 4

I made this cutting from a Claudia Hopf design I picked up at a craft store recently. It is the first time I colored a cutting. The directions said to paint with watercolors before cutting. If I hadn't read the directions I would have painted after cutting. I will continue to practice making cuttings and hope to learn to design a pattern for an idea that has been on my heart for a long time. Problem is, I don't have a clue how to go about it.~~~o0O0o~~~

I also completed my Week 4 52Q Art Journal page.
