Quilling ... my latest find!

Image
This is an age old art in which small paper strips are turned and curled so as to make different patterns which are then pasted together to form a beautiful picture. Sounds easy right .. :)








Requirements: A quilling kitCard, Siccors, FevicolLot of ideasand afcourse some dedicated time .. toughest to obtainA quilling kit includes strips of colorful paper and the quilling tool. This is the basic kit we get in the market. However there are many professional kits which containt several different tools and boards which enable you to make really intricate designs and patterns.









Choose the strips of your choice and curl them using the quilling tool. The 2 basic quilling patterns are the coil and the scroll.
From the coil, you can further create simple patterns like the tight coil, loose coil - which can then be pinched from one end to make a tear drop shape, pinched from both ends to make a marquis and so on. Same with the scroll, by curling it from both ends and twisting it in a particular way…

Time flies by ...

My first blog of this year .... but its already too late to say 'Happy New Year' now .. :)
Just wondering where time flies by.  Its end of winter and spring is here. Looks like time for another vacation .. :)
Wondering where to go as the ruthless summer would be soon upon us. Need to head up north somewhere in search of some cool air and peace ... :)
