“Bouquet” papercut: #506
This “Bouquet” papercutting is yet another design from the “922 Decorative Vector Ornaments” book by Dover Books.
It continues the papercutting project that I’ve been doing. (Basically I’m trying to work my way through all of the designs in the book, but at the moment I’ve got the added challenge of trying to adapt/cut 100 designs in 100 days.)
This week’s design is number #506 in the book.
This was yet another really enjoyable papercut because of the challenge/difficulty element, combined with the overall look and the small size. It took just less than an hour to cut, and involved lots of tiny tiny shapes and curves. There’s one particular line that jumps out at me as being a bit wiggly wobbly, but I actually don’t mind it.
And because it’s another Art Nouveau-type design, that just immediately appeals to me anyway.
I can see this design being useful just by itself, for a Mother’s Day or birthday card, with its cute little bouquet of flowers and leaves. Or on a more ambitious scale, being joined by other similar designs so that they all form a great big filigree card full of flowers and leaves.
