Update on earrings ... and a couple of new cards

Another week has gone by, and what do I have to show for it?

Well, I've started making earrings again, in an effort to stock up for Christmas. These two designs both incorporate two-colour huskings embellished with folded roses:

I'm pleased to say that my friend Doris was delighted with the silver and yellow vortex earrings that I made for her - here she is modelling them!

And I have managed a couple of new card designs, too. The first of these features a photo taken at a beautiful lake close to my home in Hampshire, embellished by a quilled dragonfly whose wings were quilled with holographic edged strips to make them sparkle.

The second is a floral design which utilises a printed digital 'mat' that's on offer as a freebie with this month's Papers and Pixels magazine. The 'mat' is actually a photo mask that can be used in digital scrapbooking designs, but I thought I'd have a go at echoing the shape of some of the leaves and flowers around the edge in quilling.

I'm also working on some new ideas for quilled leaves in readiness for The Sweet Leaves Blog Hop on 4th November (see panel at the top of the column opposite) - but, of course, I can't reveal these yet!

So today's post is a bit of a 'mixed bag' to be honest ... but at least I have a few new things to share!

  6. and a beautiful mixed bag it is. I really like those earrings and that holographic edged paper is awesome.
    I didn't get the paper and pixels edition because it said that there is a subscription price (or something like that) and I'm too cheap to pay for
