B is for Beehive

This week on ABC Wednesday it's the letter B. Beehive is a quilling technique, where strips are rolled a certain way, then stuffed between contours. This is the coat of arms of the city of Jerusalem that I did entirely in the beehive technique.

App. 20 x 15cm (8" x 6")

And a little one. This was made for Every Inchie Monday, an inchie challenge blog a while back. An inchie is a 1" x 1" square, where you create any art or craft in any technique. This cute blog also has the alphabet going - each week is a new keyword. This inchie was done earlier in the year when we were on B for Ballet.

  5. wow, seems to be quiet a daunting task to quill these like a beehive and weave a pattern/design. You are quiet an artist.
