dragon fly

      The flowers I made with eccentric loops .I realize there is so much more that I need to learn about quilling. I see so many different styles of quilling on the internet and I want to try them all.
      Tomorrow I am going to Bangalore to visit my mom . I am going to miss all the wonderful blogs I am so used to visiting every day .
       Here's a  tutorial on eccentric loops.

     Roll a strip of required length and make a loose coil.

       Use a circle sizer to get the right size of the coil.

         with the help of  a needle gather all the curls in the loops to one side and place a drop of glue . Wait until the loops are glued together.

        We get a coil which looks like this.This is called an eccentric circle.

       pinching  on the side opposite to the glued side we get a petal.

punched hearts

       I have always liked  hand made paper. Its flexible and so very apt for making flowers. Recently I found some hand made paper  .I punched out a whole lot of heart shapes out of it meaning to use it on one of my cards . I have used those hearts to make these flowers and butterflies. 
     I have added the quilled elements mostly to fill the gaps. I have touched them up with acrylic bronze colour to match the flowers.
     Tomorrow is the last day of my summer classes and I hope to teach my students some basics of quilling. I use lot of colour paper for quilling and therefore I want to show my students too how to make their own strips and make their own quilling tool so that they can start off at once.

more flowers

      I tried some more flowers. The paper was  a bit stiff therefore I found it a bit difficult to loop. The flowers look much better than it looks in this picture .

      Quilling flowers is  easy and I find it very relaxing . It looks beautiful and makes a wonderful gift. I also love to quill bugs and want to quill more of these cute creatures.

   These flowers I quilled with thick paper , difficult to quill with needle .
The flowers look very bright .Thick paper can be rolled by hand .
