Whenever I’m working on a large project (read large as in time consuming, because size has nothing to do with how much time I invest in a project), I like to take little breaks. And because I don’t want to stay away from quilling, I started a series of 12/12cm pictures, which I named ‘Back to the Basics’. Simple designs, basic quilling shapes, experiments with different colors.
So here is the first one ‘Quilled Little Yellow Flowers’:
A bright quilled painting with bold colors on a white background. It all started with some tight coils, so there you have it, your basic shape for this project!
I am planning on making many of these 12/12 canvas and then put them together in a collage of pretty colors and flowers.
For the flowers and the leaves I used 80g/sm sheets of paper, hand cut into 2mm paper strips. The canvas was made of 160g/sm cardboard.
Until next time, happy quilling!
