This is my first major quilling work.It is a recycling work as the quilling is done on a clock which had broken down . I removed the clockwork mechanism and lined the inside with blue corrugated paper for the background.The major part of the paper used is recycled from magazine covers, medication pamphlets, old wedding cards etc.
The spiral roses are made from a recycled wedding card
|Quilled eccentric flower|
I am just learning to make eccentric coils and this is a sort of maiden attempt at an eccentric coil flower.The orange paper was hand cut from a medication pamphlet.
|Heart Punch flower|
One of my favorite heart punch flowers.Check out the tutorial how to make the heart punch flat folding flower.
The pink flower is made out of multiple sun punched tiny suns.The quilled butterfly is adorned with a favorite heart shaped pearl which I got from a local shop.
|Punch Craft flowers|
These pink flowers are a personal favorite.They are made out of 5 circles overlapped and glued on a small paper base.
|Eccentric Coil Quilled Flower|
This orange flower is an eccentric col with heart shaped pearls
|Quilled Fringed Flower|
I have again recycled the lovely orange medication pamphlet to create this shiny fringed flower
The punch craft flower has been punched out from a wedding card.I always keep wedding cards to recycle.
I tried out the technique of combing while making the leaves.They were the first quilled strips I had bought[ so far I was hand cutting everything!]
Different shades of greenery all from recycled cards,magazine covers ,packages what not!I have inserted the leaves and stems into the cream colored corrugated paper at the base.
This project is the first major quilling work I have done. Do post your comments would love to hear from you.
