My best, I think

Hello All,

After one sleepless night and 7 hours straight of only quilling, this is what I created. I am not particularly proud of the creation but I am, of the patience I displayed! Hehehehe! It's a very Larissa inspired creation (thanks Kate for the link). She is, of course, a class apart! I can never claim to be half as good but try, I will :) But I will always be fond of this project because there was nothing I HAD TO conform to, to make this one. I made it truly for my own pleasure (and I have a track record of doing my best when I am not under pressure!).....a creation just to please myself :) At the end, however, I decided that I want to gift it to a little girl, who turns 1 in some time. I know she won't even know what it is but maybe, some day, she will remember her Aunt who made this for her and appreciate it :)

I've used silver glitter pen to make the swirls as I think, swirls is my strong point. And my hands had been itching to use these lovely glitter pens I bought long long ago :) [Sorry for so many pictures, I couldn't stop clicking!]

Here is my creation and linking it to Crafty JC challenge # 12, Crafty Boots' "Anything Goes" challenge,









Sorry, no tutorials for this one as there is nothing difficult really that I have done. Just simple 3D petals involved (tutorial here) with a gradation of colour and some beehive quilling to fill the monogram :)

Hope y'all will like it :)

Happy Quilling

Pritesh

PS: If my posts inspire you to create something on similar lines, I feel highly flattered. But please, do respect the effort I take in conceptualizing and executing, please give a direct link to my work when you are inspired by mine. Thanks for understanding........:-)

Thank you so much! Ada, it is something called a 3D outliner, easily available in any crafts store. Just ask for fabric outliners.
