How to make two tone tear drop shape quilling flowers

We are coming close to mid February and I'm blogging about something that I did last January! LOL! It's been a month since I last blogged here. And soon enough, after this I'll be blogging a lot more on what I did last January because January was so packed with crafting activities. Unfortunately, I just didn't have the time to blog about them then.
Last year I made quite a lot of this two tone tear drop shape quilling flower for my customers. I made quite a lot of cute thank you cards for them and decorated them with this flower. I even made a birthday card with this type of flower. Since so may requested for a tutorial for this flower, I tried to make one for them. I don't always get some free time to do it, but when I do, I try to make a few if possible.
I do hope many enjoyed the tutorial I uploaded on YouTube.....and tried to make this flower your own. For those who didn't manage to check it out earlier at my YouTube channel, you can check it out at the v…

Two - tones quilling flowers and leaves

It's official!!! I'm a quilling addict!! LOL! Seriously.....ever since I've started playing with this new technique....I just couldn't stop! I don't know why......it's taking over my life!! It's like I'm so drawn to this new toy and I couldn't stop playing with it. It's unstoppable! Arrrrggghhhhh!! Help!!! 

I just couldn't take my mind of it honestly........it's something about the way the paper coils up and how I can shape the paper into whatever shape that I want......it's such a wonderful wonderful feeling hehehehe..... :D. I've been playing with the shapes and the layering of the paper......tried to combine whatever paper I had available and see what color paper goes well together. I don't want to spend more money buying more paper.....so I just use whatever paper I had available and make it work. So that's what I've been doing.....just experimenting and experimenting non stop hahahha.......

I was so excited when I was able to do the layering of two color papers for the flowers and leaves.....I realise now that it all depends on the length of the paper strips....the longer it is....the bigger the coils....so if you wanna do smaller petals or leaf......then the length should be shorter. You have to measure the length of the paper strips that you plan to cut.....so that you will always get the same shape of coils. You can't just simply cut any length you like. You need to measure everything up. Yup.....we do use a lot of mathematics in art hahahaha......can't get away without it. It's inevitable.....we artists do need mathematics in our creations hehehe......

I'm also thinking of using this technique for my pending orders......so I wanted to see if I could apply it for the custom made orders I had......if it was suitable or not. Because right now....at this moment....all I want to do is quilling and quilling and quilling hahahahahhaha!!! I'm obsessed with it......oh God!!! I never knew I was going to be so addicted to it.......never imagine it. I donno laaaaaa....you will know it if you yourself give it a try.......see if this kinda thing happens to you too! See if you are going to be addicted as well like ME! LOL!

Quilling can become VERY addictive, I began in 1975!
You can glue many different color strips together to form one,for a really cool look.
There are also pre-cut strips that fade light to dark or the reverse. Strips that have different colors on each side, edged in metallic, pearlized, and so many more. The world of quilling has exploded with new materials the past few years!

Keep on Quillin',

I just ran across your blog after doing a search for husking tutorials. Your blog is gorgeous. So many creative things, and I am learning tons! I made a tiny looped flower with 5 petals and one with 6 petals and now I am doing the 2 tone paper flowers. I am obsessed with quilling now, and I've read your other posts too, and I agree--husking/using the comb is sooooo much fun. In many ways, I am better at that, then I am with using the slotted tool!
