Quilling Frangipani

This has been in my mind for the past many months. As I go for an evening walk, these trees in the colony remind me of my yet-to-start quilling frangipani project..I attempted to make flowers with 2mm strips..I'm not so happy with the way they turned out to be. So, I left them behind for few months. Afterwards, I took 3 mm strips and cut them manually into 1.5mm strips. The flowers turned out to be okay, but I'm not happy with the yellow tint which I painted in the middle..So, I had to leave them behind. After searching for a while, I got light yellow water color & this looked better. Next comes another hurdle..this time, it was the leaves. I was not too sure if I should quill the leaves too 'or' use some handmade paper..Finally, it was a mix of handmade paper + some crayon color on top of it. I am sooooo happy with the final outcome.

Quilling hibiscus in frame

Quilling hibiscus flowers in a frame..More than flowers, it is the leaves that gave me a hard time. I tried many options like - paper leaves painted in green & shades. I was not satisfied and finally I had to fall back on quilling for the leaves.


My third tulips project.. I've chosen only the family of blue this time..

Quilling Miniature Bakery


Hurrayyy !! My miniature bakery is finally ready.. I've made many cakes since I started quilling. Some were given away as gifts..And the ones that are left behind were poorly treated so far..I've reserved one IKEA shadow box for these little creatures..If you notice closely, I've put in my miniature teddy as well inside :)
Here is what my miniature bakery offers - Candies,  Teddy,  Cup of Coffee,Womens' day exclusive cake,  Choco Delight, Cup-cakes, Rich chocolate cream etc etc..

Here is the front view..It is very difficult to click the details with the glass on..

The bloom shop

Here is my latest version of an earlier florist shop. It makes me feel really sad to see these miniature flower pots being exposed to dust & dirt. I've got a shadow box frame from my last visit to IKEA and thought of moving these pots inside the shadow box. The existing shop doesn't fit. So, I had to make another one out of card stock and arrange these flowers inside it. With the help of my younger son, we named this as "The bloom shop".. I'm so glad that my miniatures are safe and dust free.

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 :)
