A quick nameplate

Hello All,

I have been so inactive that I almost feel like a potato at this moment! :( In-laws are away and my neck is paining so bad that I feel like my head would roll off from over my shoulders any minute now! :( Work is so far behind the schedule that I am doubtful I will ever catch up! :(

I got a call from a friend who wished a quick nameplate to be made. I didn't have the heart to say no and the neck pain was not that bad at the time. A commitment made is a commitment made. And my job was already made easy by providing the background colour and the palette I had to work with. BUt still, I had to pop a painkiller and get back to work.........here are two images: One of the finale and one, a collage of work-in-progress......



As usual, there are always firsts...........this one was the first time I used multiple strips at once, while working. The font was so tricky, it needed me to be using more than one strips, or else, I could never have probably gotten it working.

I know, this is not the best I can make but darn neck pain needs to go! :(


Happy Quilling

So sorry to hear you're not feeling very well, Pritesh! Those neck pains sound too familiar...

The name plate looks adorable, you are being too hard on yourself! I love the pictures with the multiple paper strips, looks like you're about to weave them!

Take care!
Hugs!

Very Bful one. I would like to know suggestions as to how to write the letters in various styles on the base materials (cardboard/chart paper).

one idea that struck me was taking print from MSWORD and recapturing it on the same.

Any other ideas pls


Tnx
