Quilling - Irish Themed  (March 2009)

Created: March 9, 2009
Modified: March 18, 2009

There wasn't any theme proposed this month for my face to face group, but being March, I thought I'd make some Irish themed ATCs, although I didn't have very much time to devote to creating them. But I'm pleased with the results.

I took a another class on March 5, 2009  and we were taught "Eccentric Circles" technique. Interesting. While at class I happened to say, now all I have to do is figure out how to make them into shamrocks. Well this is the results. BIG GRIN

The bases for the first 3 ATCs was a dirty Kleenex tissue that had dried paint from when I clean my brushes. I used Sookwang tape on some cream toned cardstock, then lay the tissue down on it, crinkling it at the same time. trimmed the ATC and mounted to another complimenting cardstock. I love the hard and soft lines from the wetting and drying process of the paints.

On the first ATC I also used a piece of green tinged  vellum to write my quote and attached it with the 4 green mini brads. The stems on all of them is a 4 ply Olive drab Waxed Linen thread. I made different sizes of shamrocks, using either a 6" or 9" or 12" length of 1\8" quill paper which I spliced to to get the two colors. The lettering was done with a micron pen. A little bleeding on the lettering, but still acceptable.

The background on this one is a fibrous paper. I was trimming another ATC and it fell across my paper and I just thought it looked really good, so I glued it down.  

I cut out the oval using Evolving Images "Oval Thangs set" and adhered it to a green mulberry paper. Added the second shamrock, figuring if one gives you luck, two will give you more??
