Quilled Flowers Nature Picture Art - Lilac & Butterflies

A quilled Flower Frame of Lilac and Butterflies inspired by the many quilled lilac  and vector pics I have seen. All the quilling I saw were of layered lilac flowers made from basic shapes, so I wanted to do it differently.

 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.

    1. Yes I have used color to get depth just like in swan lake. I have actually used 3 shades of purple and glued a few green twigs to get the depth.

  18. Chris, this is an absolutely charming frame! I started to make lilac flowers last summer, but unfortunately I didn't have enough purple shades. It ended up looking very flat and eventually I abandoned the project. But now seeing your wonderful flowers I am determined to finish it, thank you so much for the inspiration!

    Hugs!
