My first ever Quilling!

October 25, 2013

Hi friends! hope you all are fine.. Though I've been into lot of crocheting lately, i do like to try something new for a change at times.. That's how i came across Quilling.. i was fascinated by this wonderful paper art and had a doubt if i could ever learn them..

Determined to give it a try, i was faced with some problems like a) I don't have any Quilling tool b) no quilling paper and c) not to mention, even a color sheet :(

But that's not a problem for a girl on mission right?  I patiently cut A4 sheets (the only paper that i had at home) into small strips and after looking at some quilling videos, i finally made one!




I painted the background with purple as it would make the white pop out compared to plain white
background... The difficult part was sticking them to the background surface.




I guess it's pretty okay for first time.. what do you think?

  2. Very very pretty Anitha. i am also fascinated by the paper art and used to watch videos on quilling. I once tried using chart paper but it didn't come out well. thanks for the idea of using A4 paper. i will try it out in my free time.

    1. Thank you shami.. charts are slightly stiff to roll or to form many shapes.. I've heard that quilling paper is only a little bit thicker than A4 paper.. so do give it a try and i would love to see what you made out of it :)
