Halfway Inspiration for Challenge #21 - Quilling

Thanks to everyone for sharing their wonderful quilled creations so far.  There are so many styles that have been entered it is a pleasure to visit and terrific inspiration.  Speaking of which, here are some more creations from the Design Team and Guest Designer - Pooja to inspire you.

I, (Merry) mucked up here......Pooja made these wonderful tags for our halfway post of our Doily challenge for last month.  Because of the wonderful quilling on the tag Merry had it in her head they were for the March challenge and forgot to upload them when Pooja was our Guest Designer in February.  I apologise but still would like to share Pooja's wonderful work and it is very apt for our current challenge. 

These cute little critters have been made by JanR.
JanR points out that if you want a lovely neat look it is best to purchase your quilling strips from a shop that specialises in quilling rather than just anyone online.  The elephant is a little jagged on the edges as the strips of paper were bought from a small store online and they appeared be just regular construction paper and frayed on the edges.  Unlike the frog and the crab which were strips bought from someone specialising in quilling.

Lauren just had to have another go at quilling and created this beautiful snowflake for her scrapbook page layout.  Lauren used this wonderful tutorial by Reese Dixon.

Susan found a tutorial in magazine and made these wonderful styled flowers.  You will notice that Susan has also added a stamped sentiment .... this is allowed in the rules as long as you keep it to four words or less.

Merry wanted to try something 3D this time round.  So she created this vase which stand approx 6cm high.  Merry started with a circle chipboard base and slowly added rows of a variety of quilled shapes and sizes.  

Remember we have a wonderful prize from our Design Team member - Jessica on offer it is a Kaszazz Products Surprise Pack to the value of $20.00
