Boy it is so chilly here today & the weather report said that today was suppose to be the warmest day of the week, I don't think so. I don't know if I will be going for that walk. I can handle the cool weather cause I can always bundle up, but it is just that I have been hurting so much today, so we will see.

This is my third craft project that I finished last night. I took the idea from quilling on car cut out, so I thought I would try it with an apple cut out.

Here are the supplies that I used:

A 4"x5" wood plaque with a cut out of an apple (purchased at AC Moore)
Sand paper
Folk Art Paint-Sunflower
Assorted quill papers in reds, oranges, greens & browns 1/8" wide each

Start with sanding the wood to get all the rough spots off.
Paint one coat, let dry & sand again to distress
Start quilling the stem with the browns, cutting in lengths of 6"
Then do the leaf with the greens, same length 6"
When doing the apple start with the darker red to the left & quill around all the outside edges.
Continue quilling the apple working lighter reds to center ending with the oranges, with 8" lengths

Your done
This project is a cute idea for someone who likes the apple theme, or for a doctor & of course a teacher.
Hope you liked this project & I hope I will receive some more comments.

I also would like to thank my newest follower for signing up, The Purple Scrapbooker. I hope that you will like it here, I  hope to hear from you & that you will tell all your friends about my blog.

Have a Wonderful & Blessed Day.
Hope that you will stop by tomorrow to see what I have created next.
