What is Matisse’s cut outs? It a drawing with scissor.

Henri Matisse is a great artist of 20th century. At the end of his life, he invented a new art form by turning cut papers as a new radical medium. He took a a sheet of painted/colour papers and cut into with a scissor. Making various shapes and patterns. Arrange the cut outs paper and pasted it in on a canvas to form a piece of art.

Creat a piece of postcard using this cut out technique. Use variety of colour paper you can find. Make something nice that you yourself like to receive as a swap.

Post card size is 4 by 6 inch or any bigger size is up to you, just bear in mind the postage stamp different. Make sure to put hard backing on the back. Postcard can be vertical or horizontal format.

Don’t forget to write your swap bot particulars on the back of the postcard. Mail it naked or if you worry the postcard might get ruin along the journey, put a mod podge over it or mail it in clear plastic.
