Happy New Year to everyone in blogland.
I was trying to get a bit more tidy and sorted before I started crafting this year, needless to say I haven't entirely got on top of it.
Apologies this picture is not great but had to take it at night before these chaps got passed on.
I was asked a while ago to make another frog like I had on display at a show. I usually say no because people have no idea how long they take but as it was for a friend I thought I would and as she thought her daughter would probably steal it I made 2!
They are from Jane Jenkins book 'Three-Dimensional Quilling. They use quite a few strips of paper but are so appealing!
Their bodies are solid coils that are pushed out in to a cone and covered with glue to strengthen. These can then sit 'on' anything. In case a convenient home can't be found I made a large solid coil in brown and stuck a mini cone on it so that the frog can sit anywhere to dangle his legs.
They went down very well with calls for more from everyone that saw them.
I have just completed a little project tonight but with Crafty Bunch tomorrow and needing better light to take a picture of it that may have to wait a few days before posting.
