MC Apr/13 - Quill Weeds - What is a Weed

I came across an interesting quill combing technique on Chris's blog "A Journey into Quilling" and thought I'd try it. Love the results and went a step further adding tight coils and creating the weed type flowers.

The other leaves are created with a combing tool I made and will have pics of it later. I first tried making that leaf shape with a quilling comb, then tried husking it, then tried it with a regular hair comb, all of those were very tedious... So came up with my gadget and makes life so much better. BIG GRIN

I'm using a Nature Quote Marks quote from Quietfire Design
