Paper Cut Artists Created a Beautiful Series Of Miniature Birds

Paper cut artists, nayan shrimali and vaishali chudasama, have created a series of intricately cut 2.5D birds. 

Each bird is made by cutting out different layers on paper and then painting on details, like feathers or coloring, using watercolors. The pieces are then hand-assembled to give a final 2.5-dimensional look, creating the illusion of three-dimensionality. 

Each artwork takes between 4-6 hours to finish.

We are so impressed!

A Beautiful Photo Series Captures The Relationships Between Dancers And Their Pups

Photographer duo, Kelly Pratt Kreidich and Ian Kreidich, have been specializing for years in photographing professional dancers. 

Then, a few years ago, they hit upon a new idea and started photographing the same dancers but this time, with their loving dogs. 

100 dogs and dancers later, their new photo series "Dancers & Dogs" is a full-length art book, available now for your viewing pleasure.

On their home page, the talented duo wrote: "One day, I (Kelly) had a strange idea: "What if we did pictures of dancers, with dogs." Ian looked at me like I was crazy. On paper, it was strange and didn't make sense. Why dancers and dogs? But I told Ian to just "Go with it." I had a vision. Our first duo was Ericka and Baxter, an English Bulldog, who belongs to a friend. We captured just the results we were hoping for – clean and elegant pictures, that are sweet, light-hearted and funny. Ballet is often seen as stuffy or unapproachable, and we feel like this project helps people see the lighter side of dancers. We have learned a lot during this process. We were not animal photographers when we started out! But along the way we have learned how to work on a dog's level, how to get dogs to do certain actions, what kind of dogs are even right for this project".

Beautiful Animal Creations From Topiary Gardens Around The World
