Lockdown Papercutting Project Day 20: Flower Arrangement

Flower Arrangement #515

“Flower Arrangement” continues with my ongoing papercutting project (trying to adapt and cut designs from the “922 Decorative Vector Ornaments” book by Dover Books.)

Today’s design is number #515 in the book.

On the whole I’m quite pleased with this one. I’m definitely getting better at cutting out those tiny grapes and berries (or whatever those round things are). Also improving the cutting of the tiny thin lines, and not ripping the paper or stretching it.

Having said that, for some reason I’m not a giant fan of this design overall, but I can’t really put my finger on why. After all, it’s a bit Art Nouveau-y, and so it should be right up my street.

So I probably wouldn’t use the entire design in a future project, but I might use elements from it in another papercutting. Especially that middle flower – I do like that bit.

I must be at least halfway through the 922 designs, now. I’ll have to have a count-up, soon. And it’s amazing how quickly these last 20 days have gone. I’m already a fifth of the way through my 100-day mission to adapt and cut one design per day.
