     Hello all! Long time no see, I was not to far from quilling in the last period of time but even not so close, there were just some small projects and orders I've worked on.
     This time I would like to present to you some badges I made for an order, with the logo of Romanian Adult Scouts. The badges had 4 cm in length and I've used 3 mm wide paper strips.

Enjoy the pics!

The third quilling Easter egg.

     Early this spring I start making a new quilled Easter egg but, as it was not enough time available  I just finished it couple a days ago, a bit late after Easter passed and somebody put pressure on me (LOL) to post it now, so I don't want to die or to be injured, and here it is.
     This time I made a paper egg using 3 mm wide white paper strips (around 60 length of an A4, 30 for each half.). First came a tight coil made of 30 strips, glued the end an using a wooden egg mold (6 cm tall, 4 cm in diameter) I made the first half glued it inside to give it some strength the I made the second one following the same steps. After dried I put the together then I start making the flowers an place them on the egg surface. Then, on the bottom part of the egg, I made three different kind of leaves in order to complete covering the surface.
      In the end I sprayed it with transparent mate varnish which gives some white stains (this time I used a different one that seems is not adequate for such material like paper).
     This is the result.

Circles-four colors challenge entry.

     I design this quilling frame especially to be submitted to the Four colors quilling challenge on The Quilling Guild. There are interfered circles, four sizes each one with a different thickness and tight coils in two sizes arranged in an original pattern design by myself and, of course I've been using only four colors: white, yellow, green and pink. I used 3 mm wide paper strips only.
     The size of it is 11.5 cm by 16.5 cm.

Quilling wall using 'new but old' Pixie-Hood Looping technique.

     I've been working in the last two days making some flowers using the new discovered quilling technique distinguished as being used on an 18 th century artifact, technique named by the Guild's Vice-Chairman, Jane Jenkins, as 'Pixie-Hood Looping'.
     Pixie-Hood Looping involves looping a paper strip in a single-twisted fashion on its flat side rather than its edge, creating a hood-like shape that lends itself readily to the creation of flower petals, star segments and many other creative applications.
     You can find more informations about this on Jane Jenkins' blog at: or on The Quilling Guild.
     After I've played for a while making some leaves and flowers I decided to incorporate them in a frame representing a pot with flowers 12 by 17 cm.
     I'll let you enjoy the pics.

Quilled roses bracelets.

     Some time ago I've tried to give a new purpose to the quilled roses army so, I decided to make some bracelets. First step was to make a paper mount at the bottom of each rose in order to insert later the metallic rings used to link the roses between each other. I've used locking system with carabiner.
     Let's enjoy the pictures.
