Sometimes collage art requires cutting images that push the limits of my eye sight and finger dexterity. This afternoon was one of those times. I found some cool bug images in a 1970s-era illustrated Spanish dictionary that I want to use in a collage project. Unfortunately, they're tiny critters with tiny legs and antennae. My regular scissors weren't up to snuff, so I went to a local beauty supply store (the first and probably LAST time this dude will ever venture into such a place) and bought brow shaping scissors.
They did the trick. However, if I do much more of this kind of thing, I'll probably also have to invest in one of those magnifier/light combos. My eyes are a bit strained.
Oh well, all's fair in collage...
