Blowing in the wind. Well, it’s a saying, not sure it has a positive connotation but hey, I’m sure I can turn that frown upside down and make something a little happier from it.
With that in mind I had a little think … Ok, a long think, lol.
My thoughts eventually drifted to the coast (as they often do) and I remembered the little plastic windmills that you see in every coastal gift shop and every sand castle, or at least you should – it should be law!
They spin happily in the sea-breeze as everyone relaxes all around.
So I decided that this would be my motif for today’s Artist Trading Card creation.
As I’ve been working with quilling recently I decided to stick with that and found the perfect way to create the windmill fan blades.
Before I tell you that though, here is what I created.
Ok, so the little tool that came in handy on this mini make was the Quilling Comb from Quilled Creations.
I followed the instructions for forming a one sided wrap and hey presto, each blade was formed in no time,
I made a tight coil with matching paper strips and added a few gems to finish.
If I did this again, I’d probably choose warmer and brighter colours but I do like the calmness of the blue strips for this one.
What do you think?
