During the spring of 2017, I was on a real roll creating big, beautiful quillings. One of these was this stunning Quilled Daisy Scollwork Landscape.
The concept behind it was pretty simple. Find a reference image of a field of daisies to give me a feel for placement and perspective. Then fill it in.
On a side note, pretty much anything daisy related whether it’s quilled or a photo, ends up going to my mother-in-law, Jeanette, who is a daisy fanatic. This piece is no exception and it became that year’s Mother’s Day gift.
The Quilled Daisy Scrollwork Landscape is 8″ x 10″ and mounted on fiber-infused art board. It just barely fits inside a Michael’s Fundamentals Shadowbox frame because the centers of the daisies sit up so high.
Unlike in my Sleep My Pretty, Quilled Vortex Poppy Landscape, where I painted the background, I left this background white. For the fill on both top and bottom, I crimped 1/4″ quilling strips and made scrolls of varying sizes.
For the daisies, I used my Cricut to cut out daisy petals from a unique textured cardstock I had. The daisy centers are crimped tight coils.
Here are some other pieces that I have tagged as “landscapes.” Enjoy!
