Those who are regulars at my blog would know that I’m totally not into Scrap-booking or related paper-crafts. I knew that some or the other time I would have to take that one big step and try them for the sake of having variety crafts on my blog. Well so being a novice to this field I felt like I was pushing myself to drown myself into an ocean full of whales, sharks, stamps,inkpads,embossing and what not! I was scared till now of what to buy, where to start, how to do because there seem to be too much of a syllabus to master! So I had a little email chat with Priya Sivaraj from TheCraftShop.in who was very kind enough to answer all my beginners stupid doubts and of course I bought my first cardmaking supplies from her 🙂 Next bunch of thanks and hugs goes to Dr.Sonia SV from CardsandSchoolprojects for her very valuable post on beginners stamping tips&techniques (HERE) from where I felt like yes that looks easy enough 🙂
Hope you all found use with my basic quilling tutorials for quilled tight coil HERE and quilled teardrop shape HERE. I have been making these shapes to fill in my quilled wall hanging which is finally over 😀 and this time its malaysian flower 🙂 Well Malaysian quilled flower was apparently a quilling design first made by Solehah Muhammad of My Quilling Soul (HERE) The Quilled Malaysian flower looks very simple but getting the right symmetry on either sides of the petal is a little tough job. Honey in her blog at Honey’s quilling has done a very well explained tutorial on making Quilled Malaysian flowers (HERE) and also has shared some interesting tips and techniques (HERE). When I tried to make these flowers I had to keep repeating the petals again and again because I just couldnt get the symmetry on either sides of the petal and so I devised a way of my own. So shall we get right into the tutorial?
