Quilled Frame: Spring Yin-Yang

Hello friends…

Spring is here!!  Spring is here!!

How do you think I know??

I just saw  the colorful blooms..

That is how I know!!

This is my version of the famous song The Spring is Here written by Lorenz Hart for the musical I Married an Angel (1938).

Going by the mood of the season, I tried making a spring yin-yang quilled frame.


I used old invitation cards of red and  ivory colors to cutout the base.


Then I transfered the yin-yang clip-art template onto the base using a brown carbon paper.


For the roses I again used red and ivory colours to set the contrast right. I used the colour green extensively for the leaves and swirls.


For the border, I used some spare beaded gold lace which I had at home. I had bought it a few months back for my silk blouse and a dew inches of the lace was remaining.


I made a white cardboard frame  with black background which worked as a perfect contrast for the red, ivory and gold colours on the yin-yang. You can see the tutorial for making the cardboard frame here


Below are some more pictures I took from different angles.
