Quilled Rajasthani lady!!

Hello all,

       It's been a month since my last post! For today's post, it is going to be beautiful Quilled Rajasthani lady. Ever since I got enough confidence in doing big works(yes...A4 size is big enough for me), wanted to do a Rajasthani lady carrying those water pots on her head walking in dessert. It's a tough job for them but the sight of ladies wearing most beautiful and colorful dresses is just great.. Took a pencil sketch as an inspiration and then started one of the trickiest works of mine !

       Yeah I say tricky because getting the effect of lehenga's frills was a bit tough! But not as tough as I thought it would be. Well! as they say, you never know what you are capable of until you try ☺ Only 3 mm strips were used for the work. I love working with thinner strips. Yet to try with 2 mm though!

       Here comes the colorful lady! Loved absolutely the way her lehenga with the border turned out. For the desert, have glued real sand as dunes.
       
Part of daily chores!

Don't you love the border design!!!

Closer look for details!!

       I proudly say this is my best work so far! What do you guys think! Feel free to let me know in the comments.

Have a happy weekend!!

Cheers,

Mighty Monarch Butterfly!!

Hi all,

Today's post, we are going to see quilled version of the mighty Monarch Butterfly! All of us would have definitely seen these colorful beauties once in our lives. Haven't we!!

For my quilled version, I have taken a drawing of the butterfly as reference and the results came out very nice! Why wouldn't it. Classic orange and Black combination makes wonders right!!

All set to fly high  !!
Before framing it, I used to arrange the butterfly in random places like among the flowers in flower vases, stick it to the weight of a wind chime. That was fun as it looked like a real butterfly was visiting home!(Dint have any pictures though).

Framed ..Safe and sound!!
Hope you liked it too!! Feel free post your comments!

Have a happy weekend.

Cheers,

Quilled Gerberas !!

Hi guys,

       How are you coping up with this scorching summer!! Pretty bad summer..Isn't it?

       Today I am going to bring my quilled Gerberas to all of you! All of us would have seen these flowers at least once in any wedding decorations but not sure of its name( Okay..Some of us dint know;-)). Here they are. Gerberas, Quilled version of those beauties!!

Beauty in Red!!

Colorful!!
       In my journey of quilling, I have come across many artists (In this wide space of internet) who craft wonderful creations using Quilling. One such lady is Manuela. She is known for her life like creations of almost any flower the nature could come up with!! I first saw her Quilled Gerbera and was awestruck! Check out her blog!! For sure you will become a great fan of Quilling :-) :-) Her works are inspiration to some of my creations!!

Have a happy weekend!!

Quilled Toucan!!

Hi all,

         Today's post, it is Quilled Toucan! There is a story behind this. I came across this beautiful birdie with most colorful big beak for the first time when I watched Rio movie(now u remember it from the movie right :-)) and fell in love. Dint know it's name then. After couple of years when I wanted to make a Quilled bird, couldn't think of anything else!! Then comes the search for the bird name referring Rio movie and there it is.. Beautiful Toucan!! 

         I recently got a chance to watch these beauties in person and they are feast to eyes !! Here it is. My Quilled version of the "Toucan".

Completed and framed!!
               Before starting with the project, big concern was with claws and how to achieve the effect of them holding to the branch!! In the end they turned out fine!! Liked the way everything came into life and I feel I did justice to the beauty with this work. What do you think!

A better angle to see the details!

Original and its Quilled twin ;) 
Have a happy weekend!!

Quilled Car hangings!!

Hello all,

         Its time for some of the car hangings I made! One of my early quilled creations was a car hanging. That was made for parents' new car. It was a butterfly!



         When I see it now, I think to myself...Please hide it some where. There was no technique. nothing. Only excitement to create some thing with colored strips(Hand cut from colored sheets. Now I buy quilled strips!)

         With time, I definitely got some experience! When got the opportunity, gave it a second shot. This time it is fringed flowers!! Had to cut too many blue strips to make these tiny fringed flowers!! Here it is...Blue heart with fringed flowers❤❤❤❤


A closer look !!
         Isn't it pretty!! Parents have retired the old butterfly and replaced it with the blue heart now ☺☺☺

         Here is the second hanging. This time it comes in mango shape ☺ For this, I wanted to try Indian mehandi design! Had to cut the card board in desired shape! Two coats of painting for the white background and working with small pieces of paper to achieve the mehandi design!! Thoroughly enjoyed the making. Don't you think it turned out well!!

Mango it is!!

Thats it for now guys.. Have a happy weekend!!
