I had an un-quilled printed card left over from my earlier experiments with shadow borders, so I decided to add some quilling to it over the holiday weekend. This is the result:
I wanted to try the technique of intersecting a 'straight line' strip with open curls as I have seen other quillers do to great effect - notably Yulia Brodskaya, who is surely an inspiration to us all! I decided to glue down the straight strips first, and found this was not too difficult to do with the short lengths I used here. But I would imagine that doing it with longer strips would be much more challenging. Does anyone have any tips for this? And has anyone succeeded in gluing down a large circle outline made from a single strip? I'm sure that keeping a perfect circle shape must be very tricky!
