Lockdown Papercutting Project Day 55: Shaded Leaf

Shaded Leaf #640

This “Shaded Leaf” design is from my ongoing papercutting project (trying to work my way through all 922 designs in the “922 Decorative Vector Ornaments” book).

Today’s design is number 640 in the book.

This one is cute. I liked cutting it and I could definitely see myself using it in a ‘real’ project. Yet again it’s got a bit of an Art Nouveau them to it, which I find very attractive. And I liked cutting the teeny tiny shaded lines on the leaf, and the the curvy stalk bits of it. It also didn’t take too long to cut. I wonder if I’ve been ‘cherry picking’ the small designs though, and will end up with a disproportionate number of really big designs at the end of the project? Hope not!

In the background today I’ve been watching Marvel’s Agents of Shield on Amazon Prime. But oh dear, all six of the first six series will cease to be available on Amazon Prime in 6 days’ time. We’ll just have to get to the end of Series 3 and then wait for it to come back, one day.
