I went for my orange again. But used a double graduating quilling strip. Basically what that means is that it strip starts as white - becomes orange in the middle and then is white again at the end.
Now with paper - i followed this tutorial - purple flower with a small change in the shape.
This is what i got
The full picture is as follows :)
So to illustrate that flower i created a photo tutorial - not sure if its clear enough...that's one skill i need to improve on. However you will get a basic idea by going over the purple flower tutorial and this one below.
I love the way the flowers with the graduated orange paper turned out...reminds me of Fanta :)
