Quilled Peony, Mock-orange and Hydrangea – Floral Tile I.
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!
You can now also follow me on Instagram @quillingbymanuk where I am sharing a lot of work in progress photos. See you there!
