Do the shapes and colors in nature inspire you to be creative?

In this article I’ll introduce you to Henri Matisse and show you how to use his “painting with scissors” technique to create a garden collage made from paper cutouts that’s inspired by the real gardens you see outdoors.
Why Paint With Scissors?
When creating art, it’s important to use all of the tools and materials available to you and explore your creativity in as many ways as possible.
To “paint with scissors,” a phrase coined by artist Henri Matisse, you cut out shapes, place them into a unique design and then glue them on paper. It may sound simple, but it’s a lot of fun. And the possibilities of what you can create are endless.
