Lockdown Papercutting Project Day 69: Leaf Heart

Leaf Heart #687

“Leaf Heart” 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 687 in the book. I wasn’t sure what to call this one, but because it’s got leaves in and a bit of a heart shape, that’s why I’ve given it the title “Leaf Heart”.

Closer up there are some shapes that are like a cross between oak leaves and rubber gloves. It’s a good job I noticed the heart shape in this design, otherwise it might have ended up being called “rubber glove oak leaves”.

This one was fun to cut and didn’t take long. But as with yesterday’s cut, I prefer the ‘positive’ designs rather than the stencil-type shapes cut out of the paper.

There are a couple of the shapes where I could have trimmed them a bit better, but on the whole I think the cutting was pretty accurate.

In the background I’m still listening to the audio book of Duskfall, and the narration is still annoying.
