Crazy Crafts Contest #1 - Quilled Photoframe

Here is an entry by a dentist by profession but crafter by passion. I really appreciate that she spends some time in crafting despite being so very busy all day. She is studying too. :)

Have a look what she brings in for us.. :)

The base frame is handmade too using chipboard. The chipboard is layered using various kinds of paints including Acrylic colors and glass paint... In this case the base frame is white... The frame holds a 6x4 inch photo. The frame base also has a coat of modpodge to make it water resistant. This frame can be placed on a table or fridge top...

Quilling flowers

The technique used to decorate the frame is quilling... I have used red, light pink and hot pink quilling strips to make Malaysian flowers and then used basic marquise shape for the leaves... then these are again layered at different level for further gradient effect. the quilled pieces have a coat of modpodge too...
