              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 :)
