Quilled Typography

A special project for a special friend. This is quilled name board for a friend’s niece. He gave me the color scheme (purple and pink), the theme (floral) and the fonts and asked me to play around it. I made multiple sketches before freezing on this design. The final outcome was bright, clean and colorful. The frame was shipped to the US and currently rests in Zara’s room.

Was a fun project for me and a thoughtful gift from an uncle to his niece.

This is the final project:

CACTUS and COLORS

This post has been long over due as I was waiting for my friend to send over the pictures to me.

So this was a gift for Cactus, a company which is very close to my heart because I started my career there and also because I met my husband there ๐Ÿ™‚

So this is a quilled typography of the brand logo which I decided to gift them at their annual party.ย Here I have used the company logo and used the colors of the 6 values (integrity, excellence, trust, fun, communication and innovation) to create the design. The idea was to show how the six values are an integral part of Cactus culture.

They loved the frame, what about you? Let me know ๐Ÿ™‚

Love you Owlways!

This is my first ever entry for a card making contest. And I’m super excited! ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m new to card making and hence the only thing I had at home were some card stock, water colors and patterned paper and oh yes, loads of quilling strips. Basis the limited card making things I had, I decided to make a quilled card.

I made this card for my husband dear. There is a story behind this card though. We both are night owls and are really smart (at least we think that way ;)) so when I thought of making a card for him, all I could think of were owls. Hence, I used quilling and some painting to make this card.

So here is my entry for theย Challenge #25 –ย Oh So LOVE-ly!ย andย Challenge #30- Celebrate Love

I have tried to add some fine details to the design by adding a cute flower on the female owl (that’s me) and a bow tie on the male owl (my husband). I have used ear buds to paint the heart by dabbing paint on it.

Here you could check the close-up o the card

I gave this card to him today i.e. on Valentine’s day. Btw, he seems to be very happy with the result.

Hope you all like it too ๐Ÿ™‚
