Pink Daisies Quilled Letter K Monogram
Tonight’s creation (or I should say the past three evenings) is the Pink Daisies Quilled Letter K Monogram. It is 8×10 and the total depth is in places up to 1/2 an inch. It is made with two colors only: rose and dark brown. I used 1/4″ quilling paper from Quilled Creations for 99% of it, and the six leaves and disk floret were made with 1/8″ strips to give it some additional depth. It is mounted on 140lb, white archival quality watercolor paper.
I used a few simple techniques to create this monogram.
- Traditional teardrop-shaped quills for the daisy petals. I believe that most of them were made using 1/2 strips. The three small buds were added on because I was testing quill sizes and thought they’d make nice buds once I realized they were too small for the overall design.
- The disk floret (the brown central part of the flower) was made with 1/8″ quilling strips in dark brown that I formed into a cup using Quilled Creations Mini Mold in size D.
- The interior of the “K” was made using a boucle or beehive or popcorn techniqe. See my video blog post for instructions on how to make it.
- I made the six leaves with a quilling comb. I plan to make a video on this in the near future.
- The rest of the piece was just made using strips of paper in wispy curves.
Here are more images from different angles. As you can see, it’s gorgeous from all angles. I would never have guessed that pink and brown would look so good together, but this monogram proves that even atypical color combinations are stunning.
