Quilled wedding keepsake





     I received an order from a very sweet person who wanted me to make a quilled keepsake to be framed for her brothers wedding. Krithi is one dream costumer, she searched the internet for ideas for me and finally zeroed in on my own work, Quilled wedding knot. She said it suited best and gave me the wordings she wanted. I decided on the fonts , which I though would be best for quilling.
     The length of this quilled work is A4 and the height a little less.  I changed the design in the saree to suit the bigger size this time. The wedding knot alone took more than three days to quill . Quilling the letters were a challenge at first since I had to struggle with the heavy paper , but soon it got better. I had originally planned to add lot of white swirls around the letters , but it started to look very busy and  so stopped with just a few. It does not show in the picture , I hand painted the edges of the yellow strips gold before using them. Like wise I painted silver colour to the borders of the dhoti.
   


Thanks for stopping by , Have a great day.

A masterpiece that's worth keeping for a lifetime.I can see that using thicker paper makes quilling look so much better than when thinner paper is used.
