Quilled Branch of Flowers

I wanted to post this piece of work for more than a month but, unfortunately, my laptop crashed and things got delayed thereafter. Well, I'm back now and hope to get things back on track.

In this work, I tried to reproduce a tattoo which I came across sometime back so, I have no name in particular for the "flower" quilled.































I enlarged the image to fit a 9*12 canvas and then quilled accordingly.





















I started out by making tight coils of 1/8th inch width and 17 inch long light pink colored paper strips.





















Then shaped each coil into a semi grape roll.





















I attached a gold strip of paper of 1/8th inch to a 3/8th inch light pink strip and then made a fringed flower with gold tip out of it.





















I glued three semi grape rolls where each roll overlaps on to other so, it would look like a flower bud.





















A view from the top.





















Each flower consists of five grape rolls and one fringed flower. I crafted the flowers individually and then glued them to the canvas.





















I used 1/8th inch strips of brown and light brown for the branches. I pinched the strips so the branches would have a rustic finish.





















A closer look at the branches.


































Lastly, I glued the quilled leaves to the canvas.
