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! 🙂 Of course, I was really looking forward to start again sharing my work with you. So I promised myself that this time I am here to stay. Hopefully! I am going to 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.
A few technical details about this piece:
All the flowers are made with 1mm wide paper strips. This was my first attempt to quill a peony. On the other hand, 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 set the whole floral arrangement in a white shadowbox frame, measuring 9 3/4” x 9 3/4” x 1 3/4” (25 x 25 x 4.5 cm). A sheet of organic glass encloses the frame to protect the flowers from dust.
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 to share in the next weeks. Therefore, don’t forget to subscribe to my mailing list so you won’t miss them!
