Quilled fiftieth birthday card



    I received an unique request to make a Ganesha personalized for a fiftieth birthday gift. I quill the Ganesha on a print , I was asked to make and add a personalized note and flowers . I first hoped to Quill the entire message then as I worked I thought it would be better to print them out so as to fit them in the available space. I printed the number 50 bigger than the rest and quilled over it .
    The flower petals are made using 2mm paper strips with a fringed centre. 


    I chose colours of the flowers and numbers to suit the colours I used on the Ganesha.

    Thanks for stopping by, Have a creative day.

Quilled valentine





    I have used multistrip scrolls after a long time for this heart. They are elegant and fun to make.
All the strips are 3mm two tone. I cut up a pattern paper in the shape of a heart and have quilled over it.  There is nothing much to say except all the suggestions for colour and shapes came from Nithya who ordered the card.
 Thanks for stopping by.

Quilled wedding keepsake



      Back with another wedding keepsake. I had this idea of white hearts and flowers even when I was starting this piece. The hearts with beehive technique I thought would give a lace like effect. But somehow these hearts got lost in the paper then I had to add a pink border to them and even then they did not pop so I stuck them to a green hand made paper and cut them out. It might not show in the picture but the hearts have a green background.  I used two tone 3mm strips for the flowers.

    I must say I am loving making these wedding keepsakes , the names are the most challenging but working with different fonts is enjoyable. I had to stop myself from making more hearts because I wanted the names to dominate the picture.

    Thanks for stopping by. Have a creative day.

Quilled wedding keepsake




   My first post for 2018!!! I am very happy the way this wedding keepsake turned out . This order is from my favourite customer Daphne , not only did she give me complete liberty with the colours and design of this piece she also was infinitely patient when I was delayed by some family emergency.

    I did struggle with a more difficult font then went back to Brush script which I am  very comfortable with . I made the circles and flowers first and then made the others choosing colours to suit them . The circles are made from 3mm strips rest are made using 5mm strips.

    Thanks for stopping by , Have a wonderful and creative day.
