I love quilling peacocks. It is a challenge cause it is not easy choosing the pattern for quilling and the colours for it. I enjoy quilling sceneries because it gives me a lot of imagination. It takes me to a different world. Sometimes your imagination can take you to beautiful places that you cannot go. It is like a dream with your eyes wide open. Quilling just a flower or a card with something does not give the pleasure as much as a beautiful scenery. It is not easy getting the picture wright. But the end result gives me a lot of satisfaction. It is always better to quill the main object separately and then find the correct place on the picture for it. Hope you like it:)
Humpty Dumpty was quilled for kids. Just wanted to quill something that would interest little ones. I had many people commenting on my Pooh bear saying even kids as young as three were thrilled with it. So I thought as there were plenty of quilling to interest adults, I would do more quilling for kids. My next picture too will be something that would interest kids.
This is something I did for a little boy in mind. I did not expect it to turn out the way it did. I am really proud of it. As usual the quilling method is my own and not the traditional quilling. I had so many clocks that were out of order. It happens that I never through out anything as junk without thinking many times of how I could make use f it. And this is where the clocks came in handy. I made use of it as the frame for my clown. Now all my quilling friends are out looking for old clocks:)
One of my favourite quillings. Although the quilling did not take time the background picture took some time cause getting the correct idea for the back ground needed a lot of thinking. Piglets face had to be quilled 5 times before I settled for this. The entire picture is quilles with 1/8" strips cut from A4 coloured paper. And the quilling is not the traditional method. It is all my own style
