Lockdown Papercutting Project Day 43: Climbing Leaves

Climbing Leaves papercut #715

“Climbing Leaves” design is from the ongoing papercutting project I’ve been doing (where I’m trying to adapt all of the images in the “922 Decorative Vector Ornaments” book, and turn them into papercuts.)

Today’s design is number 715 in the book.

This was a really delicate design, but was surprisingly quick to cut. I would love to use it in a future project, like a very special birthday card or thank-you card or wedding invitation etc.

While cutting it I was listening to an audiobook from the library, Servant of the Crown by Paul J. Bennett. I’m at Chapter 14 so far, and am hoping for an ‘inciting incident’ to happen soon. It reminds me that I’ve got my own half-finished fantasy novel languishing somewhere. Mind you, I should really use my writing time to do my PhD, rather than writing my fantasy novel.

At least all of the above took my mind off bloody Covid19 bloody lockdown bloody measures for a while. I would never have imagined that I would live in a country where the Government banned going to work, going to school, smiling at people, singing, or people hugging their grandchildren or going to their family’s weddings or funerals. This is like some kind of sick nightmare.
