My intention was to quill a birthday cake ,but the card turned out to be a huge birthday party. Just right for a small kid. I love making eccentric coils and balloons are my favourite.I enjoyed making this card, using so many different colour strips.
Here's another view of my quilled cake.
I would like to give some tips on quilling that I have learnt from lot of other blogs and also by my own experience.
While making a longer strip by gluing two or more strips, it will be better if we tear the strip at the ends. This way the place where the strips are glued will not be prominent. Tearing strips while quilling also will help make a neater coil.(Thanks Ann Martin for this tip)
Take glue on a plastic surface, and touch your quilled elements lightly on the glue before placing it on your work(again ,I learnt this from Ann Martin). We can also use a toothpick to gently apply glue on the coils , If we apply glue only in one area sometimes some of the coils will stick out.
I have learnt that much care has to be taken while gluing ,taking a second to see if the coils are in place helps.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a creative day!
