This is from an ongoing papercutting project that I’ve been doing. (Basically I’m trying to work my way through all of the designs in the “922 Decorative Vector Ornaments” book by Dover Books.)
Today’s design is number #505 in the book. As I’ve mentioned before in this project, the designs in the book don’t have names, so I’ve had to come up with my own descriptions. No prizes for guessing why this one is called “Branch Silhouette”.
I quite like this one, and I’m not even sure why, because the flowers and leaves aren’t that pretty. Maybe it’s just the branch itself that I actually like.
And I also managed to cut it out fairly accurately. There were lots of very thin lines that needed to be cut out, and they turned out OK.
If I ever do come up with a series of fairytale-based papercuts, I think this design will be a candidate for including within the design.
I was still listening to The Grand Sophy audiobook when I did this papercutting. I must read more (or listen to more) of Georgette Heyer’s books.
