Welcoming spring-DT Subha Vivek


Hello Quillers,

A warm welcome to you as well the SPRING season.   Everybody loves the spring.  And spring reminds us of flowers, fresh grass, butterflies and rain.  This month challenge theme is WELCOMING SPRING.  

I chose to quill flowers and arrange them in a vase for my inspiration post.   I took a canvas drew an image of a vase and stencilled a damask design on it.  Using a sponge, dabbed shades of blue and purple as a background for my flowers. Rest of the canvas I coloured  black using the sponging technique.

Now for the quilling  part,  I used various techniques to quill sunflower, tulips, pansy,hydrangea, daisy etc.  Arranged all the flowers above my vase and added quilled leaves, foliage and cut out leaves.












 

Hope this gives you an idea to start with.  Anyone can participate in the challenge. Make sure you follow the rules and hashtag IQCG 56. Your project should have quilling as a major component.

I have welcomed my spring with a cute little 'Hello' in a frame. I have quilled few colourful blossomed flowers against the blue open sky background. The heart chipboard is just to welcome spring with love :-)

Teddy Love --DT Subha Vivek

Hello Quillers,

This is Subha Vivek  from SV Handmades.  I am really excited and feeling wonderful to be part of the DT team at  Indian Quilling Challenges Group.  Crafting is my first LOVE. I am also passionate about Gardening, Photography and Teaching. Who does not love teddy bears?  I am no exception. I decided to quill Teddy Bears in Love for the DT post in the theme MY LOVE MY PASSION.

My passion for quilling, and love for teddy bears  has come together along with a floral arch.



I printed out a outline picture of the teddybear. Coloured it and then quilled on top of it.
The whole of the teddy bears are done with crimped quilling strips to give the furry effect.

Quilling Techniques used
                  1.Crimping
                  2. Edgework
                  3. Tight Coil
                  4. Teardrop
                  5. Beehive




I have used the same as a part of the photo layout for a couple's 5 year journey of LOVE.  For more pictures and details hop on to my blog SV Handmades
