Russian journalist Nikolai Tolstyh invented a new Instagram project. He cuts animal silhouettes from paper and “colors” them with the help of nature.
He takes a stencil with a butterfly or jumping fox and looks around for a suitable background. He uses nature’s textures, patterns and colors instead of pencils.
His collection is already extensive, including a giraffe, a bear, a squirrel, birds, a fox, a butterfly and many others. Russian nature — vast, bright and colorful — inspires countless creative ideas.
Stencils and natural colors let Nikolai play around with forms, shapes and colors. A very expressive hobby. More photos are posted on
