Quilling yellow daisies

I'm obsessed with yellow and as soon as I go to a craft store, I look for pure yellow paper strips and those are the first ones to get consumed in my next project. Here is one such quilling arrangement, 3 real size daisies. The leaves are not really quilled..I tried colouring them with some weird crayon colors..of course this is all about imagination and doesn't necessarily be near to reality :) 
We recently purchased OTG and my friend who already owns one, has agreed to help me in buying related baking stuff and so we ended up visiting a shop near my office and in the crockery section, I came across this pot (I think this is tea mug)...without a second thought, I purchased this as I'm sure this will serve the purpose of a pot for my quilling flowers..

Quilling jasmine pot

This is something that I've made almost an year ago..but, arranged recently..The leaves were made for some other project, but got eventually ended up sitting here :(
As always, I begin with something in my mind, but ends up doing something else..Actually, this was meant to be framed, but ended up as a standing piece (after I realized that there were some empty miniature clay pots)

One thing I tried this time is the center part of the flower is not a quilled roll, but thick drop of yellow acrylic paint after trying all these options.

Birthday card

A simple card for my friend's daughter's birthday...God bless you Aminah !!

Just like that..

Not much quilling is happening these days.. Not sure what am I doing in the weekends :( I happened to see this thread in my garden and wanted to make something out of it..Got an empty liquid soap bottle and hence wrapped it around..Now, I need something which I can make quickly to fill this up..What else than these simple paper flowers?? Here comes the final output :)

Mini paper quilling flower arrangement

Recently, my grand parents stayed with us for some time. My grand father's hobby is to complete word search puzzle books. He has finished three books (yeah, you read it correctly..they are books)
To highlight the words that he has found in the puzzle, he use color markers/highlighters.
I've collected all the caps of these & put in my age old miniature quilling flowers in these..

 And here is what I've finally made from these.. Guess what the base is ?? A Ferraro-rocher chocolate box cover that we recently got in my office ;)

As this is so light weight, I was experimenting it by putting on a leaf  :)

Crepe paper hibiscus

In the house that we moved in recently, there are hibiscus trees all around the house & one in neighbour's house (most of it falls into our house, of course). And all these trees has huge number of flowers. Every time I see them, I wonder how do I quill them with strips.. I happen to visit a craft store which has huge collection of crepe paper and I bought few of them...Hibiscus petal texture matches with the crepe paper and hence I've given it a try..

I've made these life size & here are couple of these  amidst the actual hibiscus leaves :)

And these is back to its original place on my side table :)

Mini pot with quilling flowers

Am back to the world of quilling after a long time..This is so therapeutic..best way for me to forget the dirty politics @ work and have a peaceful weekend :)

we've recently shifted home and this one has got some open space around..My grand mother has put up few pots with all leafy vegetables around.. See my miniature vs the actual pots...

Also, I got this nest while I was going back from work on friday..I didn't have time to make new flowers, but could pick from my existing collection & they were fitting perfectly in this pretty nest.
