Quilled flowers in a pot


      I wanted a quilling comb for a long time ,to help me make perfect wheat ears and to make this flower.
The colour I choose was the one I have not used much(a little different in real) , I hand cut the strips and used the quilling comb for the petals and a fringed flower for the center.
     The flowers kind of popped out when placed against this background. The background is a hand made paper from my favourite pack. I hoard handmade paper and admire them and it is with some difficulty that I cut them up for a project.
     It took me a lot of time to figure out how to arrange the flowers as most colours did not show on this background or looked too bright.So I used the same colour paper for the pot, which is hand cut with a pair of scissors (I stuck quilled elements underneath to give it dimension). I must say I had a lot of input from my kids .


Stick the first loop around the first needle.


Loop around the needles .


Once you reach the required number on the comb, cut up the strip and stick the end.

Remove from the comb.


       A very simple tag ,using my scraps for priya's challenge. Glad I remembered on time.




     Thanks for stopping by, Have a wonderful day.

Dr Sonia S V said...

The blue looks so beautiful contrasting wit the cream flowers and you do have enormous patience with the comb!And what magic you have worked with it. Instead of using your quilled hard work to add dimension behind the flower pot you can use double sided foam tape--I hate the thought of you wasting your quilled handiwork behind the scene!!
