Decorative Vector Ornaments: Paper cut 021

This is Day 21 of my project based on the “922 Decorative Vector Ornaments” book.

 

Myeh – I’m not too keen on this one. Maybe I should have adapted the design to be a proper cut-out version instead of a ‘negative’ stencil-type cutting.

Closer up the cuts seem fairly jagged and scrappy. As with yesterday they can probably be fixed, but as it stands I just don’t find this one very pleasing:

I can see quite a few flaws in it that really jump out at me, but they don’t bother me too much because they all seem to be fixable:

Sixteenth piece in my papercutting adventure, using designs from the book “922 Decorative Vector Ornaments”.

Decorative Vector Ornaments: Paper cut 016

Day 16 from my papercutting project from of the designs in the “922 Decorative Vector Ornaments” book (as mentioned here.)

There wasn’t an easy way to connect the nose/lips to the rest of the paper, so I had to go for the old “add some extra tendrils of hair across the face” technique. Not sure it’s worked very well, but that’s what this papercutting quest is about, really: practising trying to adapt images so that they can be cut out without looking too contrived or clumsy. I might have another go later.
