Quilling Love

From the drafts. Edited today to add Adi's creation 🙂 The quilling spree continues! This time she was not inspired enough to make ornaments like before.

We are a family of art lovers! 🙂 Not serious art aficionados in a strict sense but we love to create/dabble in art. A large part of my childhood vacations were occupied with drawing, painting.

Fun times :)

I showed this site of Origami instructions to Ammu and she decided that she wanted to make a Dahlia flower. Since it was Independence day, I suggested that we make one using the colours of the tricolour. But we did not have the coloured papers. Ammu said she would colour the paper herself. At first...
