Seeing as I’ve decided to adapt/cut all of the designs in the “922 Decorative Vector Ornaments” book (as mentioned in this post), I decided I might as well do at least a hundred of them. So let’s say that today is the first one:
…which is a shame, really, because
it was very small, so all of the errors show up,
I was in a hurry
I had a fairly blunt scalpel, so
it doesn’t look very good!
Never mind – the whole point of this papercutting quest is that I learn and get better as I go along. I might try this one again one day, to see how the ‘before and after’ versions compare…
Pinterest is a great tool for finding inspiration for craft or art projects, so I’ve created a board called “Laser Inspiration”, where I’m collecting lots of laser-y images.
Pinspiration = Pinterest Inpiration
I am really into Pinterest at the moment. It’s a great way to discover what laser-y designs and techniques are trending at the moment, and you can also save images to your own ‘boards’ to use as research for later.
I’ve set up a special board in Pinterest for “Laser Inspiration“, and I’m trying to gather as many laser-related arts and crafts as possible, to make it a great big resource for when I’m looking for inspiration:
Feel free to have a look yourself! There is another link to the board here.
I’m on an artistic mission – to cut out all 922 designs from the book “922 Decorative Vector Ornaments”.
I’ve just found a book in my SuperShed called “922 Decorative Vector Ornaments“. I bought it a few years ago with the intention of adapting the designs so that they could be turned into papercuts, and my theory was that if I made all 922 then by the end of it I’d be really good adapting designs, and really good at papercutting.
Un/fortunately then I got really busy and so haven’t done much papercutting by hand for ages. But now that I’ve found the book again I’m going to see if I can get any further with my quest.
Here are a couple of designs I cut while I was half-watching “Britain’s Got Talent” this evening:
I’d forgotten how therapeutic it feels to really get into papercutting by hand. I look forward to continuing my quest to finish cutting all 922 designs…
