Triangle Swag #634
Today’s design is number 634 in the book. And because it was cut on Day 60 of my 100-day papercutting challenge, that means I’m six tenths of the way through the challenge. On the other hand, I don’t think I’m even halfway through cutting all 922 of the total number of designs, yet. So I’ll still be cutting for another couple of years. Still – I should be pretty good at papercutting by then!
Technically speaking, I think the definition of a “swag” is that it’s a (decorative) piece of draped or folded fabric, like curtains. But I didn’t know what else to call this particular type of motif. It might not exactly be a swag, but it’s not really a “sprig” either. Maybe it’s a swig or a sprag?
Anway, not only do I love this design, but I particularly enjoyed cutting it and am very pleased with the way the shapes and thin lines turned out. It’s a bit fancy, but it’s also fairly small and simple. It didn’t take long to cut, either. I look forward to using it again in a ‘proper’ project. Maybe I could mirror the design and then use the two pieces as a kind of frame for something.
In the background today I’ve been listening a bit more to The Princess and the Orrery by F.D. Lee. It feels a lot slower than the previous two books. And the plight of one of the characters makes me feel a bit queasy. I’m still hoping it will start to perk up soon, though…
