Husking Flower

Husking quilling is quite simple and nicely looking technique. There are some tutorials in Web, but today I want to present my own version for quilled clematis.
You will need:
1. Pins
2. Mat or board
3. Glue
4. 2mm or 3mm strips
5. Scissors 
6. Template

You will need one "a" element, two of "b" elements and 2 of  "c" elements.


Preserve the template with the tape and stick it to the board.

 Glue the end of strip and make a loop to fix the strip.
 Put the pin with the strip into the board, put another one and make a loop. 
 Make several simple petals and glue it together.
 Fix it on the board and wind the whole shape by the paper strip. Put all complex petals together and make the center fringed element.
 And now we have nice clematis.
 You can use different number of pins and different layouts.  It will help you to make interesting shapes for your quilling projects.
Happy quilling!



Beehive tutorial

1. To make a bee hive pattern you need:
    - 2-3 strips of yellow paper (width  – 5 mm; 130-160 gsm);
    -a knife;
    -tweezers;
    -a ruler;
    -tissue paper to make soft surface;
    -glue;
    -decorations (in my case it is micro-beads for nail-art and acrylic polish). 
2. Make a hexagon. Put a strip between tissue paper and the ruler. Take your knife and mark every 3 mm on the strip, if you make it 5 mm, your hexagon will too large. Tissue paper prevent our strip from being cut and make marks quite visible. So, use it.

 

3. First, mark all  your strips. 
4. Then cut them onto segments: the first and the secondo one – 7 segments, the rest of them – 6 segments.
5. Glue the 1st segment with  the 7th one. 
6. Next hexagons glue  to the first two with 1 and 6 segment. In that way you will get very neat bee hive.

 
7. Once you have finished the whole bee hive glue its border with another strip. You may add a bee to your bee hive to make it complete.
You can also make  rhombus, hexagon or rectangle shape. 
8. Decorate it with micro-beads or yellow glitter (honey) and cover it with acrylic polish, or another one you have.

Use bee hive as decoration to your cards, layouts or as jewellery.
Thank you for your attention!

Maple leaf tutorial

1-3. We need a "sandwich" made with three pieces of corrugated fiberboard, glue, maple leaf template and  transparent tape. This tape will protect your leaf not to glue to the temlate.
4-5. Instruments & materials we use: pins, scissors, tweezers, glue, strips of paper (3 mm) [red strips are 130 gsm, and yellow and orange ones are 80 gsm] and leaf template.

6-9. make a skelet of your leaf with the help of template, pins and tweezers, using red strips for this purpose.
10-12. Use yellow strips to make "eye"&"triangle" elements and fill the center of the leaf with them. Use orange strips to make borders of the leaf. So your leaf will be brighter ih the center and darker on the borders. It makes it more natural.
13. In the end you should glue the orange strip around the whole leaf.
14-15. Paint your leaf with the help of paints or inks and sponge. The rule is the same - brigth yellow in the center and darker colors near the border.
You can use it  on your scrapbooking layouts, cards or as a jewellery piece.
 Have a fun with quilling!

  25. Te kwiaty mnie urzekły swoją prostotą - cudne. Plaster miodu - jakoś do tej pory na to nie wpadłam, a mam digi stempel pasujący w sam raz. Pomysł na wykorzystanie stempla jako wzornika dla liści - rewelacja. Do tej pory raczej sama rysowałam, o ile w ogóle robiłam, bo ostatnio głównie zamówienia, a niestety jak ktoś coś zobaczy, to chce na ten wzór, podobne i nie mogę nawet za bardzo kombinować, bo czasu brak na nowe rozwiązania. Trzeba to zmienić! Dzięki za inspiracje :)
