Mum's Vase


                                     (click on picture to enlarge)
This paper cut took forever to finish, but it was a labor of love. It depicts my mother's milk glass vase, which reminds me so much of my childhood. In it are hydrangeas from my front garden, my sister Carol's favorite flower.
I'm having some work done on the staircase in my house, so it's a pain getting downstairs to the ironing board, and I'm abandoning fused fabric for the moment and did this piece in cut paper. I used scrapbook paper, cutting the vase with an x-acto knife, and the rest with scissors. I'm really happy with the results - well worth the effort!

Oh my gosh Judy! What marvelous details you achieved with the cut papers. I can definitely believe it took a while to finish. Just lovely. I am a huge fan of hydrangeas and there are so many varieties that I can't grow here.

Usually this kind of artwork looks better at a distance or smaller, and enlarging it will show too many flaws. But your artwork passes the test. Truly, it even looks more magnificent when enlarged. What beautiful detail!

Love, hugs, and mush,
