Doodle quilling

It's been ages since I did a quilling. No much time for hobbies now but just manage to do this picture with all my balance paper strips.

Started with no proper design at all but as I went on, I could not but enjoy doing it. I know it isn't much of a design but I had full satisfaction in doing it.

May be I have kept away from quilling too long and this would make me start doing it again

Anyway hope some of you at least will like it 😊

How to create quilled designs with a multiple designer tool

 sprig of leaves created with the tool
20 pins are supplied with the board. The size of the leaf can be changed by the row you select to insert the pins. The size of each leaf on the sprig will be the size of the gap between the two rows .
 To create a sprig of leaves with a single strip of paper follow this method. You need do have uneven numbers of pins on a side. Here I have used 11 pins on each side. Pass the strip of paper the way I have shown. It is the same as my previous tutorial. Here I am showing you how to use this board.

Remember to use a pin to use glue to paste one side only like shown in the picture on the left side of the row of pins
When you feel the long strip on the left is glued well,very gently take it out.

It will look like the picture here
 Here you should remember that there are uneven number of petals. So one side should have one extra.

Very gently push onside up and the other side down. With a few practices you should get it wright
 Now fold it from the center of the point that the leaves divide to the opposite directions

glue the center, and you have a sprig of leaves
These are a few that can be created in this method.

  I don't really know what this  board is called or who is the manufacturer. I found this item when surfing for online purchases and I ordered it. May be you can look for quilling tools. It is a small plastic board about 4'' by 4'' and comes with 20 pins to fit the holes.

I will be posting more designs created on this when I have invented by experimenting. So till I am back try to surf and see if you can find this board . I ordered it from Ali Express

Garden on the hill and flower maid

I love landscape quilling. specially gardens and vintage ladies. This is about the 10th landscape quilling I have done. took me about a week cause the flowers are so small and it took time as it was a strain on the eyes and fingers as well. I hope you like it as I do

Love is in the air is my Theme

 No 1 is a quilling of a pair of Toucans. The male toucan is trying to draw the attention of the female on the above branch

No 2 is a pair of  Giraffes in a very romantic mood

No 3 is a Peacock and hen . I have done a similar quilling long time ago

No 4 is tweeter trying hard to impress tweety with his love talk

No 5 Is a couple of swans whispering sweet nothing as all couples in love

Love is in the Air was the theme of a quilling group who was having a challenge competition and wanted me to be the artist of the month. I had not quilled for about 2 years now and was in two minds if I should accept it or not. My fingers had not been working on quilling for some time and I was not sure if I had lost touch of it but it was an inspiration to start again. So I started with the swans which I know is not too good but went on with the peacock then tweety and and the giraffes and last,  the toucans

 So here is my new quillings for you to judge . Hope to do more this year though God knows what I am going to do with all my quillings
