Quilling four small circles and one larger circle then pinching them into different shapes gives me all I need to piece together this little bluebird.
The beginning shapes of circles, squeezed and pinched into teardrops, triangles, half-circles and squares can easily be seen in the different colors of these cute little bees.
This red and white butterfly is put together using quilled and husked pieces.
I attempted to add black spots to my ladybug's back by starting two of the circles with a little of a black strip and continuing the rest of the circle with red.
I also want to share with you that Denise from Custom Quilling in Cranford, NJ, is offering a $15 gift certificate as a prize that you might win if you take some time to tell her why you like quilling. Stop by her blog and say hello.
May you have lazy summer days filled with papercrafting joy . . .
