Making roses out of quilling has always been one of my craft agendas but could never muster the courage to make use of needles/pins to form a design like this. But this time for this challenge I had assigned myself this particular project for this day thinking that I’d see how it goes. I know it isn’t that difficult a task for many experienced quillers but for me it was a different technique than usual. Eventually it turned out pretty good according to me, maybe not the best.
My way of finding out was to ask my husband what does it look like to him? I showed him this project late evening and his reply was “looks like some flower”..Hmm so atleast it looked like a flower to him if not a rose. My initial response to him was doesn’t it look like a rose to you and he blatantly said no. Saddened, I asked why and he felt the arrangement wasn’t that “rose like”,,lol. I then showed him the actual picture which I was using for inspiration and then he rightly pointed out the flaws in my execution as opposed to what we saw in the actual pic. I tried incorporating the same points of correction in the second “flower”- the darker one . All in all I was happy with the result ..How do you guys like it?
