Custom Quilling July Newsletter. The rich shades of purple quilling strips in this months kit made me think of fuchsias. I love flowers and these little beauty's are one of my favorites! I found this cute wrought iron gazebo candle holder at my LCS and even better it was on sale for 1/2 off!! I though it would be perfect to drape the fuchsia's on. It is quite large at 13" x 5" and the top flips back to allow you to put your candle hold of choice in. I decorated all four sides of the gazebo, a rather ambitious undertaking!
The very top of the gazebo has just a small amount of embellishment because of the heat that rises from the tea light and I didn't want any problems with paper and fire!! After testing it and watching carefully, the openness of the top didn't pose any problems with the few quilled flowers at the top. I used the purple ribbon from the kit to finish off the finial. It casts a pretty pattern of candlelight when lit. Hop on over to Custom Quilling and see what other projects have been made with this months kit for your inspiration!
I have been working away and have about a weeks worth of cards already finished! I got a new toy and have been playing with it. I will show you in another post along with the cards the next few days, so check back and see.
