Papercut 098 from “Decorative Vector Ornaments” Book

Decorative Vector Ornaments: Papercut 098

Here is papercut 098 of the ongoing 100-day-long papercutting project. (Using the “922 Decorative Vector Ornaments” book for inspiration, I’m adapting the images for papercutting, then practising by cutting out 100 designs in 100 days.)

Two days left of the 100-day challenge, and I’m still not bored of cutting designs into pieces of paper! I don’t think I’ll carry on with another 100 days (because I’ve got looooooads of other things that I’d like to get on with in the near future), but I think I’ll still carry on with the overall project. Maybe I’ll do a papercutting per week, instead? I must admit that I’d like to adapt and cut all 922 designs from the book, but even if I cut one a day that would still take me years to finish. Still, seeing as I’ve already started…!

In the meantime, I like the individual elements of today’s design, but I can’t tell which way up it is supposed to go. Whichever way you turn it, at least one of the flowers seems to be at a strange angle.

As far as the actual papercutting skills go, though, I think I’ve done OK on this one. There aren’t many bits that really leap out at me and upset me.
