Done from a drawing I had made for another medium, of a crane in a grasst setting. I had the opportunity to take a lot of pictures of a pair of cranes that were hanging around a shopping center in Wixom, Michigan. Red paper. 10" high. See Red Crane on Etsy.com.

Wooly mammoth design with two long tusks, cut from red paper. In this instance I made a sketch on white paper, taped it to the red paper, then used a craft knife to cut through both sheets at once. The grassy bits were cut separately. Then I used Mod Podge just to tack the pieces to a sheet of white paper so they would stay together for scanning. Image is about 8 inches wide.
