Ganeshas, The Fall entry😍

I love doing Quilled Ganeshas , my signature creations and when IQCG theme for September 2017 was announced , I wanted to do different things ,but then realized it is #Navrathri season, why not make Quilled Ganeshas as a Fall entry 😍

I am submitting my Quilled Ganeshas for #IQCG40-Fall Theme.

 Here's presenting to you all, my
Quilled Ganesha miniatures in Red and Orange .The body is quilled with 5mm quilling strips and made into a jhumka dome in red and orange respectively with yellow coloured neck and ear parts.The hands, palms, trunk is quilled and made with red and orange colours and stuck to the Ganesha miniatures .The Ganeshas sit on a quilled peetam , a tight coil,made of red,yellow,green and gold strips decorated with antique half beads .

Thanks !!
Happy Crafting

When the Indian Quilling Challenges group announced the contest theme as #Fall, I wanted to submit a sparkling entry , the jhumkas in a yummy orange colour but later changed my mind for something I love doing , hop on to my next post for my entry :) . Here's an attempt on a pair of sparkling orange coloured quilled jhumka and a beaded earring with orange and red beads with a tinge of gold.

Mixed media with Quilling

Here's my entry for Indian Quilling Challenge Group IQCG#38

I have used a white cardstock and the background is coloured using corrugated board .The colours used were green, yellow , blue and pink. The circles were printed(stenciled) using acrylic paints and different bottle caps .I have used itsy bitsy chipboard cuts which were dabbed with pink acrylic paint and finally sponged with gold powder. Inside the chipboard cut , I have used tissue paper and glued it with modpodge and later coloured it with the back ground colour to give it a depth ...
I have also used the real twigs that were coloured using brown paint and dabbed with gold powder for the glittery effect .Quilled flowers and birds are stuck to the card. I have used pearl and antique gold bead embellishments. I wanted a golden finish and hence sprinkled the golden powder here and there. I loved making them and thankyou Shylashree for the amazing contest.
