Sometimes when I am given the choice to make what ever I think best. I take the opportunity to make something that is on my to-do list. I found this free embroidery pattern on the internet which looked so quillable . I drew the pattern on a sheet of paper and then got the impression of the body alone on to the card.When it came to the tail part I tried to follow the pattern but soon got lost and had to arrange and rearrange the elements before sticking them down. I really love how colourful the peacock turned out.
The swirls are made from hand cut 200 gsm paper strips. The rest are 5mm pre cut strips . The feathers are eccentric coils made using four different coloured quilling strips joined end to end( light blue, dark blue, green and brown).
Thanks for dropping by, Have a nice day.
