What is this blog?

This blog is about my crafts as I'm sure it's obvious, but rather specifically I post about my quilling. I suppose I didn't include quilling in the title simply because that would limit what I could put in this blog. In other words, 99% of this is in fact quilling.

There ARE periods where I don't post anything for a long time, but that doesn't mean I'm done with quilling! I'll post again. Eventually.

3D mystical peacock


















I started this project about 2 weeks ago, but school got in the way! I was able to finish it today. Part of the reason why I made it rainbow is so I wouldn't have to buy new packs of paper, LOL. Wouldn't you just love for a peacock to really look all colorful like this?
For this peacock I used 7 strips for each part of the base, in 7 different colors! I divided each one into 3 inch sections, to create the rainbow effect. 3 teal strips were used for the neck, and 1 1/2 strips each of 1 1/2 mm wide strips for the head. The beak was 6 inches of 1 1/2 mm. I used a few strips for the base so it would stand up. I used extremely thin strips for the eyes and the stripes on it, I cut a strip as thinly as possible! I used about 3 inches for each part of that. I used 3 mm wide strips for the purple things on its head, about 2 inches. The feathers consist of 12 inch strips as the bottom purple ones and the next level consists of 8 inch strips. The rest of the levels have coils 6 inches long. The little coils in between are 4 inches!
