April/May 2014 - Princess Doll, Beer Mug, Birthday card

Here are my latest art pieces I have created in April/May 2014. Click on any of the photos below and you will be able to see the photos in a larger format.
The above piece above is a quilled Princess with white roses and a white crown.
The tan color of face and arms is made from manila file folders. I have not made
faces for any of the dolls I make since I am not happy with the ones I have created
since they look really bad and I think they ruin the doll. The dolls stands about 3 to 3.5 inches tall.

I made this birthday card above for my roommate Todd. I used 
color pencils to color it in after I used a pencil to sketch out the
 front of the card and the inside of the card. I got inspired from the web
to create the card.

 I made this balloon and heart flower card for my mother for her birthday.

The above zentangle sits in a 8 by 11 frame and sits in my cubicle
at work. This was done in purple ink pen. Took several hours to
do possibly over 4 hours. Did it in small portions so it took several
months to accomplish. First large zentangle I framed.

Quilling and Zentangle 3d Purple Doll

The 3d doll took me 11 hours to create her. I started first with the skirt and zentangled with a Bic purple pen and created the pattern from ideas online. I sketched it out first in pencil then erased the pencil marks and went over it in pen. The zentangle part took three hours just for the Bic pen part. Then I built the body around the skirt. The arms took the longest and struggled with them. I never add faces to the dolls because I am afraid I will mess it up and have to start it over. Quilling paper was used for the body. I used manila file folders and shredded my own strips for the skin tone. I had feathers at home so I cut some pieces off and added to the hat. The doll was finished on July 30, 2013.

Quilled guitar

I finally stopped procrastinating and followed through with a clients project she asked me to do a month ago. I used quilling paper to create a guitar. It is a 8 by 10 frame and fits the frame. It took 4 hours to create. Created 9/4/16

The second image is is what inspired me to create the guitar with the tulips. It is not my design it is a vector I found on the web.  I liked it and it helped motivate me to create.
