Hi,

It is quite common in early art classes to have pupils take an every day object and turn it into something else. So I thought, "what's good for them is good for us".

Here is a pair of scissors - what will you make with them? I've made it easier this week by putting them on transparency so you don't even need to cut them out.

The “rules”:

  • Anything goes, as long as it meets the forum rules on decency, copyright etc.
  • Anyone, and everyone, is welcome to have a go, whether you are a complete beginner or a Photoshop expert. It also would be great to see all those who have taken part in the previous challenges come and take part in this one.
  • There are no prizes apart from the chance to practice, show off, or bring a bit of humour and fun. Don't be shy, join in and have a go!

To download the image below at 3000 x 2000 pixels with an embedded ICC colour profile (sRGB), hover over the image and click on the circle with the arrows at the top right. Then, when the image opens in its own window, right click and choose “Save Image As/Save Target As” (or similar depending on your browser).

Have fun.

Although it appears calm now, the word on the street is that the rumble is about to begin.

Jane,

 

Has anyone ever pointed out that the scissors have an unfair advantage (although the rock is certain to enjoy its ultimate win once the present pandemic is over)?
