R for Red Quilled Monogram!

Here is my latest Quilled monogram. I had never done this with Reds before and did I ever enjoy it! It's very cool what happens with this type of quilling when you put different colours together, the shadows get so interesting! The Warm tones I used in this were quite exploratory, I fiddled with them until they  had a good flow.  I also tried a couple of different accent colours to see which one would fit best. I settled on Puce green and goldenrod yellow - they seemed to work best!

Different light and different angles really changes how you view these! Also because this Monogram was about her Family's last name, I tried to reflect that a bit in the design.  In the R there is a heart surrounded by many swirls, see if you can find it!
