Quilled Flowers Nature Picture Art - Lilac & Butterflies
Initially I thought of graphic quilling like the flowers in Blue Bird in a Bower, but it seemed tedious to do so many tiny flowers with strips, so I changed my mind and settled for using basic shapes. But, instead of making the flowers and layering, I glued the petals individually to form the bunch and I was amazed at the results. It looked layered!! Though this is the first time I have made flowers in 2d I am happy it looks like it has depth.
I have graphic quilled the leaves and have used dark and light strips to get the tonal effects.
The butterflies are quilled with a combination of crimped and regular strips.
Love to have your feedback on this one too.
