Sweet Leaves

Finally, the day has come!  I am so excited!  Hope you all have your nice cup of coffee and some great background music (I recommend Coldplay's new album - TWO THUMBS UP)  so you can visit all the wonderful blogs and see all the projects.  We have some MAJORLY fabulous quillers lined up.  So, without further ado.... HOP ON!

Here is my contribution.  I totally waited until the last possible minute to complete my project.  I don't know what's happened to me but I've become one of "those" people.

My inspiration came from (who else) Yulia Brodskaya.  My favorite one of her works is that of a woman whose hair is blowing in the wind and you can see the sun and flowers.  It feels like Spring.  But, being that it is no longer Spring here, I decided to create a beautiful woman with flowing hair in Autumnal colors.

Meet Autumn:

  18. I feel like this is a silly question, but how do you make and keep the swirl portions so smooth? If I use pins to hold it in place I get holes in the bottom paper and/or slight crimps in the quilling paper. and then to try to get it to stay still long enough for the glue to dry! I must be missing something. it's making it very difficult to do things even such as letters.
