Flowers of Israel, framed paper quilling art
This is another of my big quilling projects, along with the quilled flowers on black velours background. The design is mine, from beginning to end. In this quilling picture I tried to reproduce a few species of Israeli flowers that bloom in February through April. Here they are, left to right:
- yellow Lupin(e),
- red Poppy,
- white Iris,
- purple Maltese Cross Ricotia (Egyptian honesty),
- white Chamomile,
- yellow Dandelion,
- pink Cyclamen,
- dark purple Cloven-Petalled Campion.
Besides the flowers, there's also a quilled Gonepteryx butterfly (also known as brimestone) and a ladybug. For this project I mostly used 1/16"-wide strips (1.5mm); but for the ladybug, foliage, and lupin flowers popular 1/8"-wide (3mm) strips were used. I cut-out the leaves of the chamomile using small scissors. Size of the finished artwork: 9x9 inches (23x23cm). Sorry, no close-up photos this time :(
Потрясающе! Несмотря на приближение Нового Года и на холода в моих краях, смотрю на Вашу работу и попадаю в лето! Очень теплая и красивая работа!
so wonderful !!!!
And I wish you a happy new year full of accomplishments.
I am amazed by your talent. I had seen a qulling picture of a Jewish star in a craft book but did not buy it. I would like to dupli
cate it but cannot find it anywhere.
Can anyone help?
Sorry for the late response. Unfortunately, I have no idea what book you are referring to.
