Quilled Wedding Card Keepsafe


            I had been planning for a personalised gift to be given to my bestie on her marriage. I tried out various options of incorporating her & her fiancée photos but it dint work out. So just decorated using quilling around it.

            For this work I tried out Quilling by Ada's version of Gerbera flowers. It takes a lot of time to create it but the final output is worth it. The borders are stencils which was available in Anandha Stationary stores, Adyar.

            The Peacock feathers Distress ink has been used for the stencils design. I dint measure the size of the frame but you could see it in the below pic.

Quilled Heart Card


               I received an order for a card with Heart design in the centre. So I came up with this arrangement.Hope you like this work of mine :)




Engagement Ring Platter with Quilling



          My best friend had her engagement ceremony yesterday so I thought I could make a ring platter for her and this was the end result. The materials required for making this platter are
Toilet roll cardboard tubes
Cake cardboard base
Silver/gold paper
Wooden Tea coasters
Rhinestones Stickers
Glue Gun

Cover the tea coasters with the silver paper

Cover the toilet roll tube too with silver paper
Quick tip: apply glue on the sheet and then roll the tube. This would be easy rather applying glue onto the tube


Place the tube and coaster onto the cardboard by using glue gun

The tutorial on lilac flowers can be found here

QUILLED JHUMKHA


              I had always been amazed at Quilled ornaments available in FB pages I follow especially Art'zire & Daydreams. Even though I wanted to try it at some point of time I dint. It was because I dint have patience in making these ornaments. Thank goodness I have patience in making Quilled frames and Cards rather :)

           

              I used 3D outliner for decorating the jhumkha (an idea from Pritesh) and topped it with Gloss Varnish available in Anandha Stationery. This was just a basic try using swirls and I made 5 pairs. This would be a return gift these to my office colleagues since they were the one who asked me to try these. Hope they like it :)



                Sorry for the repeated jhumkha photos in different angles ;) I am a photo freak when it comes to jewellery and since I made these couldn't help it :P

                Hope you like my works. Thanks for stopping by :)

HEART MAZE



              I had been away so long from quilling and posting works here not because I dint want to, its because I had been away so always on weekends. Yes!!! now coming back to this work, I happen to see a invitation card lying at my office table which had an graphic image of the heart. So I wanted to try it out. Believe it or not I started this work around Feb 2014 but finally I worked on it this year and completed it yesterday :) Phewww its difficult to conceptualize and complete a work.




                
              On to the details: This Heart Maze was first outlined used thick red quilling strips. Later on filled it using Combing technique. This was my first try on this technique. I initially stammered but later on picked up :) The base used was water color paper. Once the Heart Maze was completely done I used "Wild Honey" distress inks on the outer portion of the Maze and then decorated with flowers and leaves. Finally topped it off with my most favourite punch flowers. The leaves were done using quilling needle and this is my first try on trying it. 







                I happened to see a challenge started in Indian Quilling Challenge blog. So had entered with this work there. Hoping for the best :)

                Today 26th Feb 2015 I received the frame. Original size of this work is 32*30 cm. After framing it looked huge(I dint measure though) and this frame goes to my brother's home as a housewarming gift


                Hope you all like this work of mine. Do share your comments and suggestions for improving my work :)

EASTER EGG - ATTEMPT 1


       Quilling Egg was my on To-Do List for a long while and now the perfect time has come. I'm really happy that I could complete this work within Easter. Here in Chennai I couldn't find proper Egg moulds so I tried using Kinder Joy Chocolate moulds.

       As everyone know Inna has amazing quilled easter eggs on her blog. So I used her Egg design as an inspiration to first try it out. I went on making this as per her explanations. To my surprise it came out pretty well. But the edges had some glue dried so in order to hide it I painted the corners. In person it looks pretty good. But in camera it doesn't seem that good.

       May be in the next try I would try to do a clean work :P

       HAPPY EASTER EVERYONE!!!!!

Quilled Daisies - Second Attempt



          Ever since I started quilling I am always in love with Quilled flowers. So when my friend came up with an order for quilled frame, Daisies came across my mind since my Pinterest board contains many Daisy versions. 

          Here I have used handmade paper as my background and have distressed the centre card using Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Wild honey. Hope you like it.

The pic to the left inspired me for this work

And this is the comparison of my 2 attempts in Quilling Daisies. 
The pic to the right was done one year back.

Quilled MOM and BABY PANDA



       This is my first post of this year..Happy New year everyone.. Hope this year turned out so well. Coming to my post, I came across Neli's teddy cards and so was inspired by it :) So I did 3d miniature quilling. Also Xiao Je posted a tutorial for the same in quilling group. So it was helpful too :)                                           

                             

        Mom panda/teddy bear is 4.5 cm in height and the little one is 3 cms. The height of the whole miniature is 12 cms. The tree trunk was made using white paper and later painted it with Brown acrylic paint to give a natural touch instead of using brown paper.


      Ya I have placed it on our car's dashboard.. Isn't it awesome??!!... Share your thoughts and comments on this work. It really means a lot to me. Thanks for the tutorial once again Xiao :)

      Thanks for stopping by. Have a great weekend :)

QUILLED BALLERINA


           My Niece Rachel turned 7 this month. So thought I could make a doll for her... When I tried to gather inspirations for my work I came across Mannayah's Ballerina doll. So thought to give it a shot since my niece loves Ballet and she is getting trained for this dance form. And ya she immediately recognized it as a Ballet doll when she saw it... So really happie about that:)

            I planned of placing the doll inside a bowl.. So stuck the doll on tea coaster and placed a glass bowl over it. Find the pictures below :)
