Swap on Facebook...3D Fall Doll...Zentangle Leaf...

I recently did a swap with a Facebook group. The person I was sending these items to is a fan of fall. That was the theme and I created a 3d Doll, a zentangle leaf with the person's first name sent in a glass frame, quilled flower and 3d quilled pumpkin with leaves at the bottom of the pumpkin. The first picture is the photo the person who received the items in the mail and posted it in the swap group. The rest of the photos below are photos of the items that I took before I sent them in the mail. But with different views to see more sides of the items. I have two other fall dolls that I created that I will bring to next craft show I hope to post pictures soon but not sure if I will get around to do that. Click on the photos below and maybe they will show bigger. Enjoy.

Quilled 3d Autumn Doll: took about 6 hours or more to tone is from manila file folders, fancy trim added to waist and hat and front of dress. The dress is 11 inches wide at bottom and dolls is 12 inches tall.

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.
