Quilled grape vine.



      This would be my first framed work. I shot these pictures before framing it. My husband has long been telling me to come out of the comfort of quilled jewellery and cards ,but I am honestly scared to start something big. This is not very big but the biggest quilled work of mine. 





      The coils for the grapes I had made a long time ago even before going to Bangalore. i thought I will finish this there , but my mom likes to have my complete attention when I visit her.So the coils remained in a box. Now I need to give someone my quilled work as a gift and that encouraged me to finish this grape vine.




     This is not my design, it is something I found at Claire's blog . I have tried to recreate her grape vine, for which she has given very easy instructions.I really love her blog and have learnt a lot from her work.




       The background is a handmade paper which really brings out the colours of the strips I have used(which are brighter than they look in this picture).I have used 3mm purple colour quilling strips for the grapes and 5mm green colour quilling paper for the leaves. 1cm wide brown strip for the large stem and  5mm for the smaller ones.I quilled the entire piece with my tapestry needle to which I have attached a handle.


       Thanks for stopping by, have a great day.

You did a great job for your first framed quilled picture!!! I've been meaning to make something similar after seeing the grape vine on Claire's blog, but with the leaf a bit different. I'm still working on the leaf now and it's no easy task... Congratulations! Looking forward to see a photo with the frame :)
