Quilled kolam



         I have never tried to repeat any of my work , as I think I  am always first time lucky. But  when I got a request to quill a kolam which I had done almost two years ago, I wanted to find out if I really can make a similar one. This is the kolam , I made it when I was cutting paper strips with scissors with very thick paper .And it was a time when I was blogging just for myself to record my own progress in paper crafts with only Akhil as my follower. 
         I am happy that this kolam is an improvement over my previous one and hope I will find my quilling more improved when I look back at this after a few more years. This turned out a bit bigger than the earlier one. Though I don't have the previous one now , I know it fit inside a C.D.
         I have used thick white pearlised paper for this kolam and hand cut A4 size paper 80 gsm for the pink teardrops.The kolam is quite sturdy and since Thiru Karthigai is just a day away it is nice to post a kolam. 


Thanks for stopping by ,have a lovely day.

Your kolam is lovely! I like the changes you made in this new one. The crimping adds a nice touch.

When I saw your first kolam, I was not quilling then and did not understand the intricacy, precision and effort involved. Now that I am quilling, I completely understand how difficult it must be to get all the heart shapes in such a uniform way and to glue them must be such a difficult task and you have done it so beautifully, hats off to you!

What a beautiful kolam! I see the similarity with the one previously and love the little changes! The crimping a nice touch!

Well, this is beautiful! I'm sure that the first one was beautiful, too. Maybe difficulties at the beginning of your work made you such an extraordinary quiller. I know that you'll keep quilling beautiful pieces and I expect nothing but only better and better from you.

It is absolutely stunning, suganthi! I could never make that swirl heart shape so evenly. I had tried shimmery paper and they were hard to quill and glue. Great work as always!
