I'm really enjoying being so productive at the moment. I'm really happy with my latest piece, this banana leaf design:
It's also now available to buy in my shop if you want to bring some tropical decor into your home - and surely everyone wants that?
I did a decent job of documenting stages of this piece:
|The intact outline, cut from one sheet|
of black paper.
|The first, lightest colour green is|
|The reverse of the papercut which|
is always a scrappy mess!
|All the shades of green are added|
and just need to decide on the
This was pretty daunting to begin to assemble. Once I finished the outline and had to start deciphering what leaf should be what colour I had a headache for a while. But once I got stuck in it all came together.
It was fun to take the plants I've done earlier another stage further and get involved in some detailed foliage.
I think this would be awesome as a tessellation print...it's got me thinking about papercut patterns and some of the blackwork embroidery I did.
More on that soon. What other plants could I do? Thoughts?
