Lockdown Papercutting Project Day 40: Flower Posy

Flower Posy #701

This “Flower Posy” papercut is from an ongoing project where I’ve been trying to work adapt and cut all of the designs in the “922 Decorative Vector Ornaments” book by Dover Books.

Today’s design is number 701 in the book.

As usual I’ve got no idea what kind of flowers are depicted (although some of them remind me of a stylised version of freesias), so to come up with a title I’ve had to describe them in another way. In this case it’s a mini bunch of flowers, so I’m going “flower posy”.

Closer up:

I particularly enjoy the swirling long leaves in this design, but also the flowing simplicity of the whole thing. Very Art Nouveau. I will almost definitely use this scene again in a papercutting one day. It might make a very nice part of a birthday card design.

(Ha – since I noticed a string of consecutive consonants in a word the other day, I am seeing loads more words with four consonants. Like “biRTHDay”.)

While scheduling this post today I have been watching a programme about the Savoy hotel on catch-up TV.

In the meantime in ‘real life’ the world is going down the toilet, so I’ll continue to hide myself away and hope everyone gets sane again, soon.
