Yellow quilling flowers..on the way..

These days, I've been going for an evening walk with my neighbors. Our colony has got lot of trees which are blooming to the fullest. Especially, during the dusk, they look more beautiful & I just can't express the beauty in words. I couldn't stop myself from quilling these little yellow flowers.. The journey has just begun.. Dear Mother Nature, as always, you continue to inspire me :)


Green bunch

Work is driving me crazy these days and I couldn't do any quilling these days. After a long gap, when I opened my quilling box, my younger son came to me and insisted that he will help me in sorting out them.. We were casually discussing on what to make next and came with a thought of making green flowers.. Yes...green flowers...Why is that flowers are always made non-green? Why do I never use green srips for flowers? Let me try once and here is what I've finally made.


Flowers were made pretty easily. Now, we were stumbled up on what to use for leaves? I've tried 3other colors before I concluded on a dark green shade.

Miniature quilling pot and flowers


Here comes one more miniature paper quilling flower pot with flowers...'ve made this pot long ago and just left it like that..When I was looking into left overs of previous projects, I came across these little yellow quilling rolls, which I think were supposed to be flower's pistil..Thought of using them to fill up this pot.
When we went out recently, I've helped my DH to pick this mug for me ;) So, sweet I'm..Right?
See, how my pot looks by its side..

Miniature paper cake

Here is a miniature cake..my favorite recipe (color)..I've made couple of these earlier and they went out of my miniature bakery as gifts..So, I've made one for myself. It is almost the size of a tea light candle..Here is another variant with the candle lit..

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.
