Hello everyone! Thank you so much to everyone who left comments on my SSS Believe in the Season Blog Hop post. I had such fun reading all the comments and really appreciate them. It is Monday and a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is up and this week our theme is Autumn. I hope you'll be able to join us.
I had really fun making this week's project and I wish you could reach out and a touch it through you screen, because it has wonderful textures. This background is really easy to create and I got the idea when looking at the wonderful 28 Lilac Lane Embellishment bottles, wanting to use a whole lot of buttons on one project. The two pumpkins were quilled and I'll show you how below. Let's start.
You can easily colour white quilling strips into any colour that you need, and for my project, I wanted a graduated look. Start with the lighter ink and gradually add darker ink, but don't cover all the lighter ink completely. I realized that the quilling paper available at SSS is wider than the one I used. It is the same brand and the bags look so similar, that I missed seeing the width. You can still do the techniques, but your designs will be a little higher than mine. I used 1/8 in or 3 mm paper.
