~ quilled bride and groom sheep frame

  wow....has it really been that long since I last blogged
well I have been blogging.... and lots of it
but not for me

my parents took a trip across Canada and back through the US
and I've been ghost blogging for them...if you want to check out the blog go here....

it's been fun and I've learned a lot about North American geography along the way
but I have still been quilling and I have a gem I've been wanting to blog about for a long time
and now it has been received.... in Greece, I can share it

it started with an email from Alex in Greece, a drawing and a frame

first thing I did was make the guests of honour....the bride and the groom
then I placed them in the frame and added paper cutouts of what was left to quill

Alex was specific which really helped me out - she wanted
quilling in a a painting but quilled

black sheep with a hat and a bow tie as the groom
white sheep with glitter veil or holding a bouquet as the bride

small farm house

a tree, a flower, clouds, sun

both on a bike with cans?
write something or leave it plain or just married , 7th September 2013 

Vassiliki & Sotiris (bride & groom)


 so this drawing turned into this quilled wedding frame
the hardest part for me was figuring out how to have something in the foreground
with other things in the background so I cut strips of the same coloured paper
in to curves to represent rolling hills and I think it worked

and voila  ... the final product mailed to Alex in Greece

after quite a few nail biting weeks I received this note from Alex
and to say it made my day is an understatement....
