Detail of the flowers:
Here's a posey I made with Alli's original pattern for the orchid bloom:
In keeping with the Easter theme, here's a bunny:
and what I call the GoonyBird (based on a card I saw on Stephanie's Designs blog by someone named Anita):
I started to make a 3D snowflake out of 3/8" paper, but it began to droop terribly. I stopped with only this much, but the droop turned into a pleasing effect:
A little angel based on something I saw at Aquamarine Crafts blog:
A very dark blue snowflake that looks black based on a design by Stephanie Sanchez - I saw the pattern on Ann Martin's allthingspaper blog:
Dragonfly like ones I saw at Quilled Inspirations:
Here is a string of fish I made for some friends who own a restaurant in Germany well known for its local catches. I based the designs on those of my quilling guru Ann Martin of the All Things Paper blog:
A flower thingy based on something I saw by Charlotte Canup on The Art of Quilling blog:
A bunch of grapes based on some I saw at Elizabeth's Creations Studio - these make great gifties for wine lovers:
I love the way this Monarch turned out. It's based on one I saw on Inna's Creations blog. I will probably never make another. It was so detailed and had so many teeny, tiny parts. I added a tail of folded roses to bring attention to it.
I made this as a Mother's Day gift. The recipient used it for a corsage for the afternoon!
Another design I borrowed from Ann Martin. She designed this pear tree for a holiday card:
Please note that I troll Internet images for ideas and designs to use. I try to attribute the source where I can, but I don't always remember where I got them. I thank the makers nonetheless! There are so many talented quillers out there. Do your own image search just for a pleasant pasttime the next time you have a few minutes. I hope you've enjoyed my creations!
