3D quilled Tawny owl

Hi :)

Another owl in my collection :) this time I tried to make Tawny owl :) it wasn't easy but I hope that it at least a little bit reminds an owl :P. As usual I used egg shell to make body and a looooots of quilled strips for feathers :). 

3D quilleg butterfly (Ornithoptera priamus & Papilio troilus)

Hello everyone!! 

It was very busy month :D I made two new butterflies and I'm thinking abut making more 3D models in quilling matching to specific species these incredible insects :). It was quite a challenge because wings of these butterflies are just 1,5mm thick :). Let see how it worked :D. First is  Papilio troilus and yiellow one is Ornithoptera priamus :)

3D Lilac flowers (quilling)

Hello everyone!!

Today I'm presenting my new creation, lilac flowers:). I love these violet, sweet scented little flowers... I never cant stand the fact that I can enjoy them so briefly... So now (unfortunately without scent experiences) I have my own lilac flowers... Yay!! :)

I made them using violet shaded strips 0,15cm width and 30cm length  (two shades), wire, green and violet tissue paper and acrylic enamel :). 

I'm posting little pictures that I made during making my flowers and I hope that these will be useful for those interested in making lilac flowers for themselves :). I have still problem with making suitable leaves... Maybe you have any ideals or tips? I will be very grateful for any  help :).

have a nice day and happy crafting!!

3D cliwia flowers (quilling)

Hello everyone!! 

After big brake I'm coming back!! :) Did you miss me? 

I made orange Cliwia flowers:) I used:

1. orange paper 0,15cm width and 1,8m long (it was quite hard to manage :P)
2. red paper 0,15 cm width and 20cm long attached to orange strip... I just glued together all the 0,3mm strips and cut them half :)
3. thin wire 0,7mm pieces in different length 
4. strips od smooth green tissue paper to cover wires...
5. strips of green paper 0,3cm width and 45cm long
6. strip of yellow paper 0,7cm width and about 1cm long cut into stamens shaped strip.
7. also acrylic enamel :) but at first check that yours paper and tissue paper won't change the color.

I shaped petals rolling into a coil and dissolve them for 12mm and shape them into diamond, every petal cover in glue from the one side and wait until glue will be little bit solidified (but not to much) and bend them to make petal form (soon I will give photos). Stalk is made with green rolled coil pushed to make cone, bend cone to give it shape similar to ark :). I dragged wire (at the end I made a coil to prevent falling out the wire) and glued it inside the cone. I hope that is rather clear but coon I will put in here tutorial with photos.

thanks and have a nice day!! :)

Here is little something to illustrate how I made stalks:). Pour a significant amount of glue into the cone and wait until it dries before gluing it with the flower part.

Little bit spring during winter!! (quilling)

Hi everyone!!

I live in cold and snowy Finland, so I miss for the spring and summer... so I had decided to invite spring little bit sooner than usually comes :D. I made Great tit using quilling method because I love new challenges and 3D quilling. I need to make little amendments but this is almost final work :). I think I will change a little eyes... maybe using black nail polish... What do you think? Is it good? :)

Hi :) 

I made few more photos with my Great tit and her new eyes :). I painter her eyes using black nail polish... it look much better :). I gave her for my mothers birthday and she was very delighted with her present :). Now Im trying to make more birds with this method I have a request to make Tawny owl :). Maybe you have some request that I could realize? :)
