Ladies, I have great news!
First of all: I'm a member of quilling designer team for Homyachok challenge blog now =) Yay! I'm really honoured and excited, I never thought I'd ever be a designer, 'cause I heard too often that I'm good in theory and a poor crafter when it comes to practice... So I had to deal with tutorials, articles and such and never with 'designing'. And now I have a chance! Thanks for everyone who supported me!
And today the first quilling challenge on Homyachok blog is launched called 'Solo' and the task is to create one beautiful quilled flower.
There's my entry:
And a kind of close up to show the dimension and the central part:
The yellow rolls in the petals can be removed, and I still can't decide which way I like it better - with holes or yellow spots in petals.
I never paid much attention to the size of petals, and I always thought that natural petals never have the same size, so my flowers always had different petals =) This time I tried to make them all of one size. I even used a special ruler with circles to measure the rolls... and I was really surprised when petals, made of the rolls of the same size, turned out to be different! Wow... that's something to think about. And 'more practice' is definetely my next goal =)
That's the banner of the challenge:
Projects are accepted till the 10th of July. Come on join us! And anyway be sure to drop by and check out other designers' works! Personally I am amazed by the example of Katrin!
Thanks for looking!
P.S.: for those of you who don't speak Russian "homyachok" means "little hamster" ;)
