Quilled Picture Graphic Quilling- Blue Bird in A Bower

I quilled this scene or picture of a Bluebird sitting among plum blossoms as long  back as in Oct 2012, but did not get down to blogging it till today.This was my first attempt at quilling a bird using folded basic shapes that resembled feathers, unlike the parrot and humming bird which I quilled using loose coils.

 I have used a photograph of the sky as a background. The Bluebird is quilled with folded 3mm strips to match the feathers. I quilled  Little Robin Red Breast after practicing on this one which came out quite well for a first attempt. I have inserted a white strip to get the shine on the beak. My objective was to get it to look as lifelike as possible.

I have done the leaves slightly differently as I have crushed the strip to get a wrinkled effect. Here's a closer look at the elements.

Would love to know what you think.

  15. I really love the technique with the folded feathers. I use the rolled feather shape in my birds and place a cut out of the bird over the quilling.
    Nice work.

  16. I am so happy that the internet brought me to your website which has opened up a vast array of information about my renewed interest in Quilling. The designs are thrilling, but your approach to this tedious craft is so very helpful to me. As I learn the outcome is less than perfect. However, you have encouraged me to forgive my stumbling around this craft simply by starting over. Quilling isn't just snow flakes...... Thanks...... I have a lot to learn.
