Altered item: Decorative box with a quilled folk art bird
As I already wrote, I like using folk art motifs in my paper quilling. Here's a new box with traditional Ukrainian patterns.
I made my first box by Opishnyanska painting style, this time I used Petrykivsky painting (Petrykivka), the one I especially like. Main elements are from this album.
I made a sketch of the design with colored pencils, and then used it to do the quilling.
As before, a cheese container was used for the base, which I covered with colored paper. Diameter 11cm (4 3/8 inches).
Archana, for the longest feathers (on the left side) I used 4 strips approx. 30 cm (A4 paper) each, of two different colors.
Why dont you put some videos where you can teach people how to do quilling? I just bought the tools yesterday but I am not able to do it by reading the techniques. A video would be more helpful
I wonder if you saw my photo-tutorials here, here and here. If you still can't manage it, you always can find some really good videos on YouTube. I especially like this one on quilling. Good luck!
