New Leaf! Papercut (Design 695)
Happy New Year! My ongoing papercutting project is now stretching into another year. And because the new year is often associated with ‘turning over a new leaf’ (in other words, starting again), I chose a leaf design for today’s papercutting theme, and called it “New Leaf” papercut. (It is design #695 in the book “922 Decorative Vector Ornaments“.)

Leaf – with pen for scale
Here it is much closer up:
Having called it a “new leaf papercut” – it turns out that I’ve inserted the wrong photos of the leaf, and that actually the ones here are old photos. I will change them tomorrow.
In the meantime I must say that I really like this design. Very Art Nouveau-style, so it’s right up my street. And I managed to cut all of those teeny weeny lines without accidentally breaking any of them.
While I was cutting it I was listening to an audiobook. This time it was Victor Hugo’s The Hunchback of Notre Dame. I must admit that the book has a very slow start, as far as I’m concerned. There doesn’t seem to be any clue about who the main character will be, yet, let alone an “inciting incident”. I’m guessing that at some point a man called Quasimodo might appear, but so far the story seems to be about a crowd of people waiting for a play to start.
