Paper star cutouts

I found a tiny pair of decoupage scissors invaluable for cutting out some of the more intricate shapes. Many of my research images were natural, non geometric shapes (like the seed head) and needed some artistic licence! I chose a lime/olive background which actually seems yellow in the photograph and plum/purple cutouts with accents of a fuschia colour. I liked the effect of rotating and layering different star motifs.
