Homyachok Quilling Challenge #1: Solo – Quilled Red Dahlia

Hello Everybody!

I made this flower for Homyachok challenge #1, titled ‘Solo’. The rule is to create one beautiful quilled flower.

With a little help and encouragment from Aljona aka WhiteRacoon, I decided to enter the competition with a quilled red dahlia. I used 120g/sm paper, hand cut into 2mm paper strips. The petals were made using the husking technique and the center is a fringed quilled flower.

Homyachok is a russian challenge blog and the name translates as ‘little hamster’ . Do visit the website to see some amazing creations, both from the talented members of the designer team and the other participants!

    What a beautiful flower you have here! I really love the curved petals and that little addition that makes the picture whole – the twigs and leaves! So cute!

    It’s gorgeous! I didn’t know how you did it but I tried hand cut my own quilling strips none of the strips are the same. Great job!
