Fifty three strips and three ml of glue

Hello All,

It is a terribly belated post but one that had reasons for getting delayed. A happy event in the family kept us all busy......so, here comes......

When this order was placed, the original idea was completely different. It was to be a "fall" theme name plate. Then came the change and it got to "abstract" and then, Yulia's "Noel" was given as a reference......

Now, when someone cites Yulia Brodskaya's work as a reference, you know you've got an impossible goal to meet. And it probably is wiser to not even try! ;) That is what I ended up doing.......I decided to throw in a bit of henna designing (the oh-so-Indian patterns) and spring colours......this is for the first time literally that there hasn't even been a rough sketch. It was just an idea that kept moving my hands.

To all the people who aspire to try quillography, this piece used up a total of 53 quillography strips and is 10 inches by 16 inches. Apart from the glue needed to glue the background of the piece, I used a total of 3 milliliter of Fevicrylk Fabric glue to make the entire quillographed nameplate. THAT is how less of material is really needed for quillography :)



Some details of the name-plate......








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........:-)
