Quilled Photoframe

Hi Friends...

I have been MIA for quite sometime.. but have been busy planning and making a album which I wanted to gift to my husband on our anniversary.. but alas.. he remembers about the pictures and now he know's that I'm working on the album... so I need to think of something new which I can gift to him :)

Lets see... need to get the brain wheels churning to get something sweet out of them :)
Meanwhile I made this photoframe and did some quilling on it.. and must say, I'm back in love with quillings.. simple stripes of paper can be made into something very pretty...
This is what I made.. :)

err... not this .. but this is what I was having when I started..  :)
 and tada.... I made up the flowers using the malaysian style of creating them !!

This is a closeup of the photo frame... you can also notice a paper doily attached on a blue surface to bring out the color. I had kept this so tht I could have written some sentiments over here as well :)

Here is the complete picture of the photoframe and since this was the first time I was doing it, I didnt wanted to go higher and make it look like a mess.. and maybe with a black background the flowers will come out a lot enhanced.. and yes.. I made this white photo frame myself using a cardboard and paper :)

I hope you all liked it as much as I liked making this one.. photoframes is smthing I would really love to make in the future !!!

Till then.. happy crafting :)

  1. Hey hey Manu - very very pretty, haven't tried photo frames as yet but yours is inspiring me to give it a shot. The quilling is really exquisite too. As for your anniversary gift - how about an explosion box with oodles of little stories and pictures from your story together?

Hi Crafty People..

I'm certainly hooked on to making Explosion Boxes.. they are sooper dooper fun to make and there is such a lot of craziness in making them, a part of this craziness comes from the fact that, it's fun to watch the recipients reactions (of course, if you personally give it to them).. they are always amazing :)

This time around, I experimented by Making a carousel explosion box since I wanted to make one of each shape and size.

Here is what I made !!!

I have tried my hand at making madhubani painting earlier and a preview of the madhubani inspired magnets can be viewed here.

Gond paintings are native to gond tribal community which hails mainly from the areas in central India. India has such rich and amazing forms of art that it's truly wonderful to see and try some of them.

Gond paintings are amazing to look at, truly intricate yet very very simple. The designs are basically evolved from everyday life yet the intricate dots, dashes and lines which fill up these everyday life inspired art form are amazing to fill up.
