Quilled wedding keepsake



      Back with another wedding keepsake. I had this idea of white hearts and flowers even when I was starting this piece. The hearts with beehive technique I thought would give a lace like effect. But somehow these hearts got lost in the paper then I had to add a pink border to them and even then they did not pop so I stuck them to a green hand made paper and cut them out. It might not show in the picture but the hearts have a green background.  I used two tone 3mm strips for the flowers.

    I must say I am loving making these wedding keepsakes , the names are the most challenging but working with different fonts is enjoyable. I had to stop myself from making more hearts because I wanted the names to dominate the picture.

    Thanks for stopping by. Have a creative day.

Quilled wedding keepsake




   My first post for 2018!!! I am very happy the way this wedding keepsake turned out . This order is from my favourite customer Daphne , not only did she give me complete liberty with the colours and design of this piece she also was infinitely patient when I was delayed by some family emergency.

    I did struggle with a more difficult font then went back to Brush script which I am  very comfortable with . I made the circles and flowers first and then made the others choosing colours to suit them . The circles are made from 3mm strips rest are made using 5mm strips.

    Thanks for stopping by , Have a wonderful and creative day.

Quilled peacock feather.



     It seemed so easy when I started but I had to redo the centre several times.  I am still working on the colours for the centre I am yet to make four more of these. The brown is a light metallic colour and I have also used two shades of green . I stuck one strip of green alongside that of the brown  strip and then crimped it and then straightened it to use for the strands. The centre is two shades of blue.

    Thanks for stopping by. Hope to see you all again in 2018.
Merry Christmas and a very happy new year to all.

Quilled Ganesha







I had the opportunity to work for a dear friend ,Rashmi Rao; She ordered 35 Ganeshas to gift  to relatives and friends to celebrate her son's wedding. It took me several months to finish the order . Dr Rashmi kindly shared the feedback she received from her guests and it was truly heart warming.

Thanks for stopping by have a great day.
