Paper - Borrowed Destinies by ~5hannon. Mindblowingly intricate paper cutting done with a 35-degree angle blade because the artist feels it gives her better control. One of a series she calls the "Paradox Series." ( Featured by Kitten-of-Woe )

Wow. I did think that this was a fractal. Amazing, and WOW even more at the patience it must have taken.

This is stunning. I was wondering how you attach your papercuts to other paper, as obviously white glue would make it buckle and mess up the design.

At first glance I thought this was one of those fractal art submissions, which I usually ignore.
But after gazing for a while & reading the text I realised that this was done by hand.
Completely blown away - this must have taken hours.
It's very beautiful

Wow, this is the first time I've ever seen this kind of artwork. I'm guessing you drew the design first? It's cool that it's not perfectly symmetrical, that the outer "flower" shape has 3 round petals on top and the 5 at the bottom merge into the border of the star shape.
