Quilled Peony, Mock-orange and Hydrangea – Floral Tile I

Quilled Peony, Mock-orange and Hydrangea – Floral Tile I.

 

Hello World,

I cannot believe it’s been over one year since the last time I wrote here! How I’ve missed my little blog! 🙂 I was really looking forward to start again sharing my work and I promised myself that this time I am here to stay. I’m gonna kick off the new year with a project I actually started last spring, a densely packed 12cm*12cm floral tile with quilled peony, mock-orange and hydrangea.

All the flowers are made with 1mm wide paper strips. This was my first attempt to quill a peony, the mock-orange is and old design and still one of my favorites.  I really like how nicely layered the leaves and flowers turned out. I achieved this 3D effect by stemming everything with wire and carefully arranging each element to neatly fit into the composition, leaving no gaps in between.

I framed the tile in a white 25cm*25cm shadowbox frame:

I am almost done with the second tile and working on two more which I will post starting with next week. I have some lovely brand new flower designs, so don’t forget to subscribe to my mailing list so you won’t miss them!

    Hello Manu,

    Glad you’re back! Intotdeauna imi place sa ma uit cu atentie la creatiile pe care le faci. Ma inspira. Sunt dragute noile frunze pe care le faci, cu mai multe nuante de verde. Am citit intr-un coment de-al tau cand spuneai ca este ‘handmade paper’. O faci tu efectiv foaia sau doar o pictezi?
    Keep up the wonderful work!
