Something new





      This is my first post this year and I would like to wish all my readers a very happy new year with lot of new beginnings.


      This work is inspired by an embroidery design. I liked the pattern a lot but I am not sure if I have been true to the pattern . Trying to get the same effect I have tried a new technique for the leaves(new to me).I hope you all like it , I like it a lot.I have used three shades of green for the leaves.I first made a long loop according to the length of the leaf needed and then I have made smaller loops continuously on one side all the while sticking the loops to the long center loop .Then I started on the other side with another long strip with the same center loop I made small loops on the other side sticking  the base of the smaller loops all along the length of the center loop.










       Thanks for stopping by,have a creative day.

I think you did an awesome job. It is very eye catching and I love the colours. It is interesting where we can get quilling ideas from and I love the leaves too.

Oh that's a very nice look and yes, different! The loopy leaves remind me of something we have here called ribbon candy.

Hi

I love your blog. I started quilling sometime last year and i've referred to your blog many times to learn some techniques. Thanks so much for all the lovely pictures and tutorials. I love the way you quilled the leaves here and would love to know how it is done. Thanks once again.
