Quilled leaves



    Ever since I saw Annie Anastasia's unique leaves I have wanted to try making them. When I first tried making them it did not occur to me that she used a comb to achieve this effect so I couldn't get it right. Now that she has a very good tutorial  where she shows just how she makes her leaves with veins.




    Looks like I have filled up the entire card.I am planning to put this in a shadow box. The paper strips are all hand cut from A4 colour sheets.


   Thanks for stopping by, have a creative day.

Anastasia (Annie) said...

Nice job Suganthi and glad my video helped. But if U don't mind a bit of friendly advice, the leaves should be placed the otherway. In natural leaves the veins always face upwards. Please don't misunderstand cause I need everyone to do it proper only then I would be happy that I thought something fruitful :D

Such amazing and striking leaves. You are my quilling inspiration and yes do put them in a shadow box and save it for posterity. I sometimes feel your exquisite quilling is wasted on a card but needs to be framed and protected from dust especially exquisite work such as yours needs to be preserved for generations!

Hi Suganthi, sorry I've not been visiting your blog for awhile. Just popped by and wow was I in for a treat! Your latest work is stunning and different. I need to go through all your posts as there's so much to see and learn. Hope you are well :)

Carrie said...

These are beautiful leaves! I've been practicing them as well, but I must be doing something wrong, they never stay all stuck together and pretty like yours. the vein is usually separate in th emiddle or stuck to one side of the loops.

SandyW said...

I love these leaves and have not seen them before. Something new for me to try.
