Homyachok Quilling Challenge #3 – Gifts of Summer

A new quilling challenge started on Homyachok challenge blog: Gifts of Summer!

You can make a postcard, a quilling picture or anything else that shows what Summer is all about: fruits, berries, mushrooms, wild flowers, etc.

This is what I have prepared as a guest designer for this month:

I started by making a few field flowers and I chose poppies for their red bright color.

 I always wanted to quill some wheat and now I had the chance, hence the three corn ears.

 This arrangement would not be complete without some fruits, so I decided to make the ones which I like most: strawberries! Delicious!

 I used 2mm strips of paper hand-cut from 160g/sm and 120g/sm A4 sheets of paper. For the background I used a black cardboard which makes all my flowers and leaves pop-out. The aproximate size of this quilled painting is 16cm * 20cm.

Make sure to check the blog to see some amazing creations from the other DT members. You’ll find a cute hamster there!

Hope you will take part in this challenge! Happy Quilling and many creative ideas!
