Quilled Banyan tree For St Kevin's School


        Class of 1984 from St Kevin's school are having a reunion today , I was requested to make a gift for their beloved school. The banyan tree was chosen as it fitted with their idea of expressing what each letter of the school stood for them.
        I had secretly wished I will not have to repeat quilling a banyan tree as my first tree turned out perfect and I was afraid my next attempts might fall short. This tree is at least three times as big as my earlier tree and in one place it has three layers of beehives. I used four colours of hand cut heavier paper for the trunk , I also cut them in slightly different widths to give the trunk a more natural texture.
       The letters were the most challenging , I printed them out and got the impression of the letters on the paper and quilled over them. The back ground is white metallic paper, I did not measure the exact size of the work, it is considerably more than A4 size.
     
Thanks for stopping by, have a great day.

Isn't it funny to fear we won't be able to make it just as good as the first time? I think you've conquered it Suganthi! Magical! Love all the layered leaves and the outlined birds. I wish I could see your layered bark from the side - it must look amazing in person!

Suganthi, this is simply remarkable! I can only imagine how pleased the school is with your work. Love the denseness of the leaves and trunk - well-worth the many hours you spent on it.
