BELIEVE- Typograhical Quilling Project- 7th International order...

This was the 2nd plaque that the same customer has ordered for and the only requirement he had was- it has to be colourful and please don't use black colour.

This will always remain one of those challenging projects that I did... that I will always remember. Coz I finished it in a weeks time. I took my own sweet time to finish each letter and I think the end result was worth all the time that I took to finish the project!!!

So yet again this will be a pic loaded post so rest back and continue :) As of now You must know all the steps that I work through...

Selection of font, printing on thick card- chose white this time. cutting out of the letters and initial outlining with white quilling stips... I used 5 quilling strips to finish the outline... And this took me 30 mins to finish.

The hardest part began when I started off with the filling of the letters...U can see the series of pics when the work was in progress. I chose to use colours that would be soothing and wanted a kind of gradient look. 
I took nearly 4-5 hrs to quill each letter... my slowest work ever I guess :P 
My mom used to peep in every now and then to check the progress of the work :) even she will accept that this is one of those projects where I used up all my brain power :P

Finally I finished the project... and was pretty happy abt the way it turned out. Sent out the pic of the same to the customer. The customer was elated and now just wanted a few flowers to be added...

As the customer requested we put in flowers( tulips). I really like the tendrils :)

Added the tulip buds and then gave them a touch of viva decor gold.
The completed final project :)
