Quilled Ecclesiastes 3:1


 Hi all, back again with another quilled project from the September Custom Quilling Newsletter.  September's kit had papers and quilling strips in shades of black, greys, white and cream along with some really pretty designer papers in shades of brown and faux stone designs.  I choose one of these papers, the clock design, which fit perfectly to use as the background for the quilling embellishments for Ecclesiastes 3:1. Along with the quilled and punched flowers I wanted to add another distinct themed element to the project and a quilled clock was the natural choice.  


I quilled a wide tight coil from several cream strips to get the clock face and added the black half pearls for the numbers. The hands of the clock are made from wheatear loops and a small shaped marquis for the point.  The outer rim of the clock has tight coils and u shape loose coils facing each other.  Then I wrapped several strips around them to finish the round part of the clock face.  Some filigree accents on top and bottom give it an ironwork look.


The rest of the quilled embellishments are simple teardrop and marquis flowers with black pearl centers, fringe flowers and punched vellum flowers with white pearl centers.  A few shaped leaves and spiral coils finish the frame around the computer printed verse that is cut out with a die cut.


In the picture above that is taken at an angle you can see dimension of the quilling and how the clock face is popped up with dimensionals.  I just need to pick a frame and it will be ready to display and contemplate when "those" times come into my life!  I still have several more quilling and cards projects finished and waiting to post so check back.  Thank you for your comments and answer to my question on the last post.  If you didn't get a chance to answer it, please do so any time, I always love feedback to improve my little blog!

Shalom,
Sonya
