Spring Greenery – Floral Tile III

Floral Tile III – Spring Greenery.

Time for the third piece from the series of densely packed 12cm*12cm floral tiles – Spring Greenery – this time with white hellebore. I finished it quite some time ago, but kept on tweaking little bits here and there until I felt everything is in the proper place. It’s a bit of a challenge to get the edges of the tile neat and straight in order to keep the overall square shape. The space I get to work with is not very big either, so not a lot of flowers and leaves fit in. Well, it was I who chose the size! 😀

I absolutely love making these flowers! They come in so many wonderful colors, I only wish I had paper in the right shades so I can quill them all. They are fairly easy to make, just time consuming. But hey, what in quilling is not time consuming? Continue reading →

Tea Plant – Camellia Sinensis

Tea Plant – Camellia Sinensis.

It’s really been a long time since I last made blooming branches. I even thought I reached my saturation point after constantly quilling them years ago and that I will have to stay away from anything even resembling a twig. But then Spring comes and one is mercilessly hit in the face with pretty blooms and tender leaves. I guess there is no resisting that, so I obediently taken out my paper strips and trusty wire and began to quill away.

I wanted to try something different than the classic apple and cherry branches, which I feel have been overdone in the quilling world (guilty as charged!) and unfortunately fail to inspire me anymore. To be honest, I don’t remember how I came to decide upon the tea plant. All I know is that I fell in love with its little white flowers and bright yellow stamens. Plus, I love me some green tea! 🙂 Continue reading →

Quilled Spring Flowers - Peony, Hellebore and Magnolia

Quilled Spring Flowers – Peony, Hellebore and Magnolia

I had such an energy boost from the warm weather, that I managed to stay focused and finally finish this panel by the first day of Spring. I started working on it somewhere in December, choosing the flowers and the colors. As it always happens, I ended up modifying it so many times, adding and removing flowers, leaves and whatnot, that I lost count. Last week I set myself a deadline: to finish by the 1st of March or to completely give up on it. And here it is now! I will definitely make use of this method again 😀 I created a lot of new floral designs these past months and the ones I used here, the peony, hellebore and magnolia are my favorite.
