Quilled "A"

If you are looking for the Fred She Said April Blog Hop, see the post below!

Hi all, here is another of the Custom Quilling DT Kit projects for April, an altered "A".  Sorry for the pics not being the best, I had a hard time with the lighting and getting the quilling to show well for some reason.  I purchased a wood "A" and then painted it a creamy white for the base of the quilling.  The quilling strips are a beautiful gold and yellow/gold metallic.  The combination reminded me of antique quilling projects that I have seen and so I decided to go with that theme. 

The large flowers are husked with a domed coil center and there are smaller husked buds.  These are paired with teardrop leaves and curling vines.  The teardrop flourishes help give the design that antique feel while the fringed flowers and the punched metallic accent flowers with pearl centers update the design.

I loved doing this projects and working with these rich metallic strips and you can find the April Custom Quilling Kit here, that has more wonderful supplies in this regal color theme.  Choose smaller letters for a whole name or just three for a monogram look, there are many other alterable items that you can embellish with quilling to give as gifts or use in your home decor.  If you are looking for the Fred She Said Blog Hop, see the post below!  Thanks for all the great comments for my creation for the blog hop, y'all are all so sweet and very encouraging!!!!

WOW I am glad you took close up pics. Would love to be able to quill. I have a kit just haven't gotten it out of the package. I guess that is my first step. LOL

Oh my word that is just awesome. I never cease to be thoroughly amazed by all the quilling I see. I would so love to try my hand, but I don't think I could ever come close to the amazing designs that I've seen here (or from anywhere else for that matter). It's truly amazing!
