Abstract Flake 2 - Arrowhead by ChimeraDragonfang Abstract Flake 2 - Arrowhead by ChimeraDragonfang
Second abstract snowflake.

Time spent: I don't remember. Something like two or three hours to sketch it out and three or four hours to cut it. Definitely up there as one of the longest times to cut.

The only price for it is sanity. ...I think. General consensus is I haven't got much of that anyway.

Yeah, I'm bound to think that considering all the effort, time and thought you put into all your pieces there's bound to be a loss of sanity to make up for the genius behind it all. Amazing work though! And who needs sanity anyway ;)

This one is probably one of the craziest so far.

Not quite that long, but I did have to be careful not to tear any of it.

Dumb question - do you fold the circle into quarters or something to get the symmetry or do you draw it all out and then cut it?

I fold it into sixths, sketch the design on one section, and then cut it out. At some point I intend to compile a step-by-step tutorial on how I make these.

Ah....I thought you must fold them. Even so - an incredible amount of work. Simply beautiful. I am running a kitty to the vet for his annual checkup in a few minutes, but I need to go fave more of those.

They're all in one folder in my gallery, so you could just collect the whole thing.

My goal with this one was to fill in as much space as possible. I also broke one of my own little rules on making paper snowflakes and didn't do enough connecting lines between 'slices' in one section. Oops.
