Lockdown Papercutting Project Day 58: Vine Pot

Vine Pot #636

This “Vine Pot” papercut is from an ongoing project that I’ve been doing (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 636 in the book.

Closer up:

I think this is a lovely set of leaves and vines … but it feels like something is missing. It just seems a bit unusual to have a pot with a set of leaves and vines growing in it. So if I ever use this in a real project then I imagine I will add a flower or pumpkin to the scene. Maybe I’ll create a Halloween scene. Although that will still probably look a bit odd, to have a great big pumpkin coming out of a small pot. Maybe I can just leave it as a mystery: The Case of the Missing Pumpkin. Or maybe a fairy godmother has borrowed the pumpkin to use as a coach for Cinderella, and it will return back to its pot after midnight.

I did enjoy adapting and cutting this piece, though. I really like the shape of the leaves and the curling tendrils of the vines.

Oh – except that I’ve only just noticed that there is a line missing on the left side! Oops.

In the background today I’ve been continuing to listen to The Academy by F.D. Lee. It’s the sequel to The Fairy’s Tale, and I am really enjoying it. It’s clever and funny, with some very satisfying elements to the plot. (I wonder if that has been feeding my subconscious mind with the ideas about missing pumpkins and fairy godmothers? I hadn’t realised that until just now. )
