Zentangles, quilling, and paper bead earrings.

I have been creating a bunch of items for swaps, craft shows and taking a zentangle class once a month. I have been trying to motivate myself with zentangling and found a group that meets at Panera Bread cafe once a month.  The items below are some of latest creations.

 The butterfly outline was a possible coloring page I found online that I printed out and filled it in with zentangles. August 2015

 These mini owls I sold some of them at the latest craft fair. They stand about an inch tall. They are made with corrugated paper. August 2015
 These are 4 pins I made of paper beads. I glued them together and painted the beads with nail polish.  I added Christmas motifs on the front of the paper beads with quilling paper. The picture below is what the back of the pins look like.  August 2015

The paper is wound around a quilling tool to create a basic coil shape. The paper is then glued at the tip and these shaped coils are arranged to form flowers, leaves, and various ornamental patterns similar to ironwork.

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.
