Flowers for Gemini – Paper Quilling Daffodil and Azalea Flowers Wall Art
Since we are already at the end of May, it is time to shine the spotlight on the next sign in the zodiac. Therefore, today I am sharing this framed wall art with flowers for Gemini – yellow daffodil and azalea.
This artwork is intended for the smart and curious Gemini. Azaleas and daffodils are among the flowers associated with this air sign. Cheerful colors best match the Gemini personality. As a result, I decided to use bright yellow and light green to create this décor. These warm and sunny colors depict their out-going, quick-witted and fun-loving nature!
This is my first time quilling azalea flowers. I think there is still a bit of room for improvement, but I definitely see myself using them in another layout. Blooming from February to September, depending on the variety, they are a great addition to any seasonal floral arrangement.
A few technical details about this piece:
When I make the delicate petals for the flowers, I use high quality acid-free paper cut into 1 mm wide paper strips. In order to create lifelike leaves, I like to work with a special type of handmade paper. But most importantly, I stem each flower and leaf with floral wire to create a rich 3D effect. Finally, I set the whole floral arrangement in a white shadowbox frame, measuring 15 x 20 x 3.5 cm (6” x 8” x 1 3/8”). The frame is enclosed by a sheet of organic glass for protection against dust.
I am going to ask the same question again because I would really love to know your opinion. For my Gemini readers, are these flowers and colors appealing to you?
