Framed in Flowers

It's summer vacation season for the schools ....so it the time to handle bored kids who are happy either playing out ( way too hot for that now ) or play station games! So I have been busy trying to make arrangements for a boredom free vacation.Or at least a week !!!
In the meanwhile , not much crafting is getting done. I get so distracted with all the beautiful crafts I see online that I drive myself nuts. I feel like I have to try and make all the crafts - so many lavely crafts with paper, fabric, polymer clay, wood, paints, beads, glass ....get so tempted to try all different things and I end up trying at least a few. Does this happen to everybody or am I getting crafty mania?
Anyways, I have finally finished assembling and framing my quilled flower bunch.
I have seen so many lovely flowers and designs done with this technique. I decided to make poppies ( poppies are such pretty flowers because the colors are so pretty). So here is my take on it...






My husband thought that the flowers have a carved wooden look about them. He wouldn't believe me when I told him it was paper. I had to ask to see for himself.I guess this paper gives it the look and strength.

Really gorgeous, love the arrangement!, I use to try all different crafts, it got overwelming for one and also expensive, so I narrowed it down to quilling and paper crafts which is working out great, I do still get urges for other projects,lol!!

Ooh, I adore it. I have lots of crafty things sitting around, I never get to. It's like an addiction.

No paper here, no other hobbies, but I will have to look on Etsy to see if anyone is selling any finished items.

Yasmin, I know exactly what you mean by getting craft crazy. I'm a working mom and wife and have to struggle to make time for my many many interests-fine embroidery, ribbon embroidery, quilling, stitiching, crochet, baking, compering, choir practice. But I've been blessed with energy and stamina. My current craze is crochetting whcih is why I'm pleading with you to send the flower and doily patterns to me at natasha.r.naidu@gmail.com.
I spend the bus ride from home to office crochetting, sometimes, even standing! But its a worthwhile pastime.
With fond love from Pune, India,
Natasha
