Quick post with a quilled poppy! What was initially supposed to be an entire poppy field became a single flower. This is one of those projects that I couldn’t manage to finish as planned no matter how hard I tried. Ah, well, I hope you like it anyway! 🙂
I actually pondered whether to post a single quilled poppy, but I really like the way it turned out so why not share it? I used 80gsm red paper for the petals and 120gsm for the stamen.
The stem is a wire wrapped in crepe paper. The diameter of the flower is aprox. 9 cm, so it’s pretty big! Here is a side view:
And a picture with the quilled poppy wrapped around my wrist so it will give you an idea on how big it is:
Did you know that poppies also come in blue color? And what a gorgeous shade of blue it is! I think I just found my inspiration for my next project!
I am still trying to come up with a design for my new watermark. This time I added a horizontal divider between the blog name and the URL. Do let me know what you think about it!
Thank you for your visit!
