The Monarch Butterfly is my own. I downloaded a picture of a monarch and followed it as faithfully as possible. I used loose scrolls and tight scrolls. Outlined the scrolls in black and stuck them together on top of a printout of a monarch. Did not past it to the paper since I wanted a 3D butterfly.
I made the body with a 1cm strip (A4) and shaped it to form the body. The head is made from tight scrolls. I cut the paper to narrow towards on end and quilled tight scrolls stating with the broad end. This made the sides pop out a bit like eyes.
For the top of the wings I quilled a black loose scroll, shaped it and then made three very small white tight scrolls, squashed them and stuck them inside the outermost layer. I am quite proud of this butterfly!! looks quite good for a beginner!! even though I say so myself!!
