Filigree Friday Summer Flowers Tutorial

Fabulous Filigree Friday

UPDATE:  WINNER Announced... Giveaway closed - check out who won!!

It is raining here today, hopefully these will add a splash of color to brighten your day!

These are very simple daisies... If you have ever done quilling you have made a few daisies... If you have never tried quilling, this is your chance... They are super easy and sturdy!

In keeping with my bright, upbeat feel, I have pinks, greens, yellows, and blues... for that added "pop" everything is on a black background.

I don't go far without some sparkle and bling, so the centers are rhinestones and there is just a light covering of paper glaze (next time I will add more - it gives the quilling that glass-like look)

As I said, this is really easy, each of the flowers is the same pattern:

  • 5 - 6 inch (15.24 cm) Teardrops
  • Place all teardrops with the points touching in the center and glue
  • lightly coat with Alene's Paper Glaze, let dry
  • Top it off with a rhinestone in the center

For the paper squares I added what you can think of as marker stiching... the "stitching" is a pattern of "dot dash dot dash dot" (. _ . _ . _ . _) with my marker - because you see, I cannot sew, this is about as close I get really... it is fun and I thin adds a finishing touch to the card.

All of these photos use the same type of flowers and squares, they are only different in their composition.

P.S. I hope this posts, I used the schedule feature :-)
