Quilled white dandelions and raspberries, framed art

Dandelions and raspberries. Quilling

This is my new dandelion project, the last one out of three designs with dandelions I planned to do (the other two are Dandelions and violets and Dandelion). If you wondered how I make the seed-heads, here are the instructions:

Dandelions and raspberries. Quilling

1. Quill a tight hemisphere like you would usually do for a 3d quilling project — the base.

2. Make about 30-40 tiny fringed flowers for the parachutes. I use a square piece of parchment about 3/8 x 3/8 inches (1 x 1cm) in size for each parachute, when the fringe is about 1/3'' (3mm) long. You may need even more of such flowers depending on the size of your dandelion.

3. Then, I attach a "stem" to the hemisphere and build up the seed-head by gluing the parachutes row by row onto the base. You'll need a thick adhesive for this. Let every row dry before adding a next one.

For the leaves I used crimped strips, as you can see. That's when my new DIY paper crimpers came in handy :)

You might also notice the new design of paper frame. I think it's much better then the old one. I'm considering writing a tutorial on how to make this new type of paper frames, but don't have enough time right now, sorry for that.

Size of the finished work (without frame) is 5 3/8'' x 6 1/8'' (13.5 x 15.5cm).

UPDATE: You might want to check out the instructions and templates for making a beveled picture frame like the one used for this quilling project.

Замечательно! Одуванчики по-тихоньку отцветают ;) Следующую работу с одуванчиком можно посвятить полуразлетевшемуся одувану с улетающими вдаль парашютиками ;)
Малинка здоровская! Особенно зубчатые листики натуральные и колючки ;)

Inna D. said...

Спасибо большое! Да, такая идея была уже давно, но когда попробовала сделать - мне не понравилось и я доклеила парашютики и сделала целую "голову", а эскиз работы с разлетающимся одуванчиком так и остался на бумаге :(

Инна! Работа как всегда великолепна! А рамочка самодельная? Если да, то можно схемку?

Inna D. said...

Спасибо! Рамочка, немного измененная старая. Как будет возможность, сделаю МК со схемками.

Инна, ещё раз СПАСИБО Вам - у Вас училась квиллингу. Каждая Ваша работа на что-то своё вдохновляла. Искренне жаль, что Вас воры интернетные обидели. Они и нас всех, получается, обидели...
Ну да что поделаешь. Вам и вашей семье удачи во всём. Катя

Катя, спасибо большое!
К сожалению мои статьи и фотографии работ начали появляться не только в интернете, но и в печатных изданиях без моего ведома, а это уже слишком...
