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.
Floral Tile I – Quilled Peony, Mock-orange and Hydrangea
I kept waiting for a sunny day so I can take a few photos of my latest project and apparently today was my lucky day. Nothing new, just some old ideas in a new presentation: quilled daisies and rose hip arranged in a semicircle.
Quilled Daisies and Rose Hip with a Bee
The diameter of one daisy is 4cm and the outer diameter of the semicircle is approximately 17 cm. The entire composition is glued to a 23cm * 23cm panel. I’ve painted the background with acrylics and I will frame the arrangement in a 25cm * 25cm shadowbox frame. Continue reading →
Boy, it’s been ages since my last post! Not to make excuses for myself, but these past months I’ve been busy and mostly stressed out by the entire process of moving to another country. I simply didn’t have any energy left to update my blog, even if I’ve been constantly plagued by feelings of guilt and remorse. But lets not dwell on the past and instead concentrate on the present moment! I’m in Belgium for 3 days now and everything feels new and unfamiliar. So many things to discover and learn, I welcome this adventure with arms wide open!
This small summer wreath with quilled strawberries and bees is the last commission I worked on before leaving Romania. It took me 2 days to make the flowers, leaves and strawberries, stem them and then work on the tiny bees. It took me almost another day to arrange them in a wreath, paint the dots on the fruits and the background. I am proud of myself for completing this project so fast.
