Quilled Shadow Box

Hello friends

We are back with a new post, this time we have created a quilled shadow box. We have repurposed the box which came with tealight candle that we received during Diwali. As soon as they were used and about to be dumped by our mom, an idea struck us, why not use it in some project. So we saved it and wanted to do a quilled diorama in it.
We have made it to gift our close friend whose favorite color is purple. We hope she likes it

We were inspired by the colors of the IQGC. So, we have incorporated all the four colors in this creation.  We have done beehive technique for the leaves, quilled tendrils for the hair, loose coil for the tree and tight coils for the flowers and the girl. 

Though we had the base (shadow box) ready, we had to cover it with white sheet. The tricky part was assembling and sticking the girl on the swing to the tree. We wanted to give dimensions to the tree, so we formed clusters of beehive coils and stuck them in 2-3 layers. We hope you can see the layers. We have used ice cream stick for the swing and embroidery floss to hang the swing to the tree.

Though it consumed a lot of time, we are happy with the outcome.

Check some of our other quilled creations below:

Aren't the flowers adorable?

Diwali Greeting Card

Hello friends,

Hope you are all preparing for Diwali. For those who don;t know what is Diwali, it is an Indian festival, also called the festival of lights. People wait eagerly for Diwali where we exchange sweets and gifts with our friends and family.

Today's post is a greeting card for Diwali, using dies from Ranganjali. This card would not have been possible without Raga akka of Perky Hobby, who makes amazing cards. She is a good friend of ours and offered to cut the dies for us. We are grateful for her kindness.

In this card, I have drawn mandala design with glitter pen and stuck the sentiments over a piece of  red sheet. And ta da, a simple yet elegant Diwali card is ready!
