Another set of Quilled basket

Image
Hi blogger pals,

I did not have any idea or design in my mind when i started this project. I got some 1 cm quilling strips by mistake and I am not a great fan of using 1 cm strips for creating projects on a base layout. So was wondering how to best use them and had this brainwave!!

Quilled baskets (not such a brainwave actually :P )
The 1 cm strips give a sturdy feel to the baskets. There are 3 layers to this. To the middle layer i have a tight ring structure instead of the completely filled coil and it gives a different appearance. The handle is made out of 3 mm strips using the standard weaving technique. Hope you all like the pics




Going to make some more baskets in other colour combinations. :)
Happy quilling until then!!

Mojo Monday 260

Image
Hi Blogger pals,
It is time for another mojo monday!!! And since this is the last week of the month, it is a round or square card. This weeks design is also by Juliee Tilman. She does give out wonderful layouts.




I have just taken the square layout for a start and laid out some basic elements. Not much of embellishments in it but I somehow liked all the colours I used. Not the traditional colours that go with each other. It was an experiment! :)
Here it is.

Happy crafting for now!

Yet another Mojo Monday 259

Hi All,
Back to yet another Mojo Monday card :)
This week's sketch is designed by Juliee Tilman and is very attractive and I this is the second card I am sharing in the same design!!


Here's my take on this week's sketch :)




I have used pattern paper from Itsy bitsy, Added a quilled flower and instead of the ribbon addded two popsicle sticks cut in the same shape!! The quilled teardrop shapes do give it a nice traditional feel!

Linking it to mojo monday contest. Happy crafting until next time folks!!

Quilled (Heart) tree #2

Hi all,

Today I wanted to share with the quilled tree I just finished making. It is inspired by Elizabeth Moad's numerous tree cards that she shares. Each and every design is unique and amazing :) This is a slightly different version from what I tried earlier. Instead of the leaves i added quilled hearts and adding this to my 'Sending you my love' themed collection :)


Happy quiilling folks!!!

Mojo Monday 258

Image
Hi Blogger pals :)
Second post today! :) Wow :)
This week's Mojo monday sketch is by Juliee Tilman and it is a simple yet elegant design :)

I have used a white base card on which I have added a grey layer and 2 white strips in place of the ribbons.
Also used a circular yellow foam piece and added a quilled flower to it :) The sentiment is handwritten and done! :)



It is a very late entry to this week's challenge but better late than never!!!

Happy Crafting pals :)

Quilled Car #1

Image
Hi Blogger pals,

Its been more than 2 weeks since I have done crafting.. Running around with lots of work to do and the weekend was more than welcoming to start again.
This time its a quilled car! and the best part is the requirement is as per request and the person needs three!. Phew , guess that must mean lot of work for me :P.
He wanted me to have a look at the BMW art cars and get inspired by those designs. Inspired I was but I was not sure if i could bring them out with my little knowledge on quilling. So I decided to give it my own shot :)


Here are the pics.(It did take a lot of time :) )
Starting on my next one now...
Happy quilling!!
