I created some flowers with the new colored sheets of paper which I’ve recently bought. I came up with a very light, simple design with the shape of a quilled bouquet and I gave it a black background to contrast with the orange and yellow flowers.
The total size of this quilled picture is 24cm x 19cm (9 7/16″ x 7 1/2″), and inside the frame 19cm x 4cm (7 1/2″ x 5 1/2″).
For the orange flowers and the stamens I used 160g/sm paper cut into 2mm (5/64″) strips. The other flowers and the leaves are made with 120g/sm paper which I find much easier to use.
