Lockdown Papercutting Project Day 7: Roses

“Roses” papercut: #509

This “Roses” design is from the continuing papercutting project, where 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 #509 in the book.

Closer up:

I really enjoyed adapting and cutting this design. Because I used a new scalpel blade and was paying attention, I think it turned out quite well. I especially liked cutting the little veins in the leaves. I’m not quite as keen on the design of the actual flowers themselves, but I still liked adapting and cutting them.

I’m definitely planning on using this design motif in a future project. I can see them as the border for a bigger design, maybe. Ooh, or it could be part of a “Beauty and the Beast” design that I’ve been thinking about creating. (One of these days I’d like to create a series of papercutting designs based on fairytales.)

I can’t even remember what I was watching or listening to while I cut this one, I was so engrossed in it. I was probably listening to a writing-related podcast.

Any comments on the design, or have you tried to cut any of the decorative ornaments from the same book? You can chip in via the comments page, or Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn or Instagram.
