Quilled daddy card



        This is my most recent work , The word Daddy in paper quilling. It took me way more time than I had planned for the project. The filling in the word was the most time consuming . I had to cut little pieces of white paper strips and stuck them horizontally. The entire card is made using 220 gsm card stock hand cut paper strips. I painted a metallic bronze colour to the black strips and the centres of the flowers.
         Altogether I liked how the card turned out.

         Thanks for stopping by , Have a great day

Quilled bride



I love how this dress turned out . I took a free image on the internet for reference , decided to make a complete white gown for the bride . Wish I could have used a background which would make the dress pop out , but this is a small part of a big work and all the elements is mounted on the same background paper. I don't seem to have as much time as I used to so progress is very slow. I have to thank dear Daphne for being so patient.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day.

Quilled G clef



     This is a small part of a huge framework for someone who is a great music lover.
I experimented a lot with this piece , Initially planned to quill only the space around the note then I  feared the note might not pop out the way I wanted it to so filled it with beehives . I had to roll almost two packs of white to complete the circle almost wished I had rather used beehives for the circle too. Now I am glad I used the tight coils it gives a nice mosaic finish to this piece.
