Firstly, vortex coils! Introduced by Australian quiller Licia Politis. Finally, I get to experiment and practice on how to do it. I love the look of vortex coils especially when it comes to the square shape. Those bigger coils on the left are vortex coils while those smaller ones on the right are normal coils. (for the sake of comparison)

And here's another card adapted from a card design in the book "New concept in paper quilling". I love the Kraft card look, with the paper bag element. Instead of using punched flowers as the original design, I made fringed flowers. (Hmm, maybe I'll write a review of all the quilling books that I keep in my collection someday, when I have the energy to do it. Hahaha!)
And last but not least, a cute card for a boy's 1 year old birthday. I don't feel like repeating myself by quilling foot prints, or baby or rocking horse, so instead I came out with this - a boy flying an airplane. I started by sketching the outline of a cartoon version of airplane, and then filling it with quilled shapes. It might not be fantastic, but I think at least it's cartoon-ish. Haha!
