1 - Quilled Flowerpot, originally uploaded by Elena_H.
This is the first piece of mail art for Mailart 365.

The theme for this month is to recreate some of the rubber stamps that I have in the house into quilled art work.

This first piece is a pot of orange flowers.

And guess what.... more flowers :)

This is another card from the butterflies series. The card has 3 quilled roses in the middle surrounded by a oval frame of marquise quilled coils coils.

Underneath is a closer view of the inside of the card.

Flowers and butterflies greeting/birthday card

I received from Andy as a gift a butterfly card kit a while ago. I really liked it as I love butterflies. Now when I am quilling as well I found a better use for it.

Here are some classic quilled flowers quilled on one of the butterfly card.

Quilled Tags, originally uploaded by Elena_H.
As you probably realised by now I'm a "bit" mad about flowers.

This are more flower quilled on some blank tags. They are great to attach to a present.

I am very excited about my new present from me to me :-) I'm gonna receive in the post, hopefully in the next 2 week, this calendar gem. I've been looking all over the internet for it. It's really hard to find as is not printed any more (to expensive and not enough buyers I guess).

The whole idea is that this calendar has on every page corresponding to every day of the year a small quilled design and the the necesary paper strip to make it. I think it's an awesome idea.

I spent all day yesterday to find the 2008 calendar (as it's the last one in it series) but the only one I could get my hands on was an used 2007 instead. That's good enough for me as they are very expensive and I managed to find a cheap one in France.

Now I can't wait to receive it and get started. I will join Andy in his Mailart 365 project and send my little projects all over the world.

From time to time I get involved in mailart and send bits of my quilling to artists around the world. If you want to find out more go to my REAL wall.

This is a small flower that I did for one of Tanglecraft's projects.
Red flower greeting card, originally uploaded by Elena_H.
This is another simple thank you card. One of the first one I've ever quilled. I'm still a beginner in quilling but I enjoy it a lot.
White daisy, originally uploaded by Elena_H.
I quilled this white daisy to give it to my manager as a thank you for giving me 3 days off to study for my stats exam.

Underneath is another quilled daisy. I think they are great as a thank you card. They are easy and quick to do and they look nice and simple.

Abstract flower bouquet, originally uploaded by Elena_H.
I discovered paper filigree less than a year ago when I accidentally saw a quilling book on Amazon. From that moment I fell in love with paper quilling.

Andy had a mailart lesson the other day and I wanted to be in the show. I had only 10 minutes in the morning before he will leave the house so I grabbed a postcard and some few already quilled coils and start pimping. Is not the best piece ever but this is one of the first I made and the bear looks cute, so I like it.

The quilling represents a abstract flower bouquet.
