My flatmate is an avid reader and requested for a bookmark. With Christmas fast approaching i decided to gift her a pretty and simple bookmark. At the same time made sure it was vibrant and colourful too just like her personality!
I took a break from the usual quilling - the fringed flowers, folded roses et all. So i took up my project to create an aquarium with some more exotic sea creatures like octopus, jelly fish and the crab. I had seen some of these quilled by some experts. Seeing some blogs and sites gave me some idea and foundation to work on project. The background used was a sheet of light blue sheet that bought out the look of the whole project. It took me a week to complete this and finally an sharing it with you all. Please drop your comments if you like my work!
Quilling miniatures is an art in itself. It requires quite a lot of precision to get the right size and look.
Tis the season to be Jolly.....la la la ....la la la la....
Yo people.... its Christmas time.... so i made a few for the festive season.. :) these are for my special friends.... i hope they like these.... :)
I wasn't able to work with my last blog template... so spent the weekend to a find a new look! i think its really pretty.....what do you say? :)
I had been planning to try some folded roses with quilling strips for long but somehow always thought that these were little difficult to make. i would see them being used in other peoples creations and just sigh. And finally i gave a shot at it. thanks to some instruction i found online via blogs :)
I had a cut out of a handmade green paper with a lace border and i used just 3 roses. The pink one, being a little bigger than the 2 red roses. for some add on i used the green leaves look. just fold a quilling strip and cut it diagonally to get a pointed tip. both the parts can be used like i have done here. Red tight coils of 1/4 length of the strip have been used along the leaves. The pink bell flowers are made with 1/2 of the strip length with tiny white tight coils in center.
I hope you like this one. i have finally laid this cut out on a maroon card stock :)
For my parents anniversary this year i couldn't think of a better gift than a quilled card befitting the occasion....
