Do You Ever Quill Like This?

Post by quillingsavy on 2010-10-11, 05:50

I know for my 3D quilling, it all comes to my head and all. But for normal quilling...I am never quite sure how to place it...

Here's my solution! Be an individual quiller by not using patterns, or trying to come up with a pattern by yourself.

But how?!!!

Look on the net for what you want to quill, possibly a cartoon version, depending on how complex you want it to be...Then, print it out at the size you like, and put quilling over it!

Do you ever quill like this? I did this with my bird, and cat that I have on a card I just made. I tried to make a cat without it...but I failed! So I found the perfect solution Very Happy.

Thats how I do alot of my frame work, I do use patterns for small things like butterflies christmas ornaments and some flowers. I just finished making a panda bear using a pattern,and did a search for flowers of china and made some by looking at pics, then made up some flowers of my own.THen I'm making butterflies with a pattern, By the time it's finished it will be mixed with patterns and my own ideas.Will post when done. sunny

I'm working on the Christmas quillng and today I made a Christmas tree because I came across a pattern in a quilling book. Thing is, I can never follow a pattern. I wind up using them as a general guideline, but I just have to do my own thing. My tree is different from the one that inspired mine... but it's good. *shrug* I guess it's just the way I have to quill. I start on the trodden path, then take off into the woods on my own. ;o)

Actually, what I'm talking about is really not a pattern from a quilling book. Like this, want to quill a cat? http://thepurplejournal.files.wordpress.com/2008/10/11949855171422370184cartoon_cat_gerald_g_01svghi.png

Print that out and put quilling over it, I mean like that.

Yes, I've done that with a couple of my guitars and I used a frog on a wee book as a model for my own frog. Thing is, now that I quill, I'm always on the lookout for pics that I could quill. Butterflies, cartoons, even pics of puzzles... whatever, if I see a good pic, I'll put it by to do a quilling version of it. Smile

Hi Rachelle, I do this too but I have a plastic sleeve over my cork work board so I can glue without it getting stuck or damaging the pattern and wipe the sleeve over after. If I am pinning I remove the plastic but find that I can reuse my patterns/pictures this way and my projects doesn't get stuck to the paper if I have an accident and ruin it.

Wendakai I love your guitars, they are excellent! I am off to try one today
have fun all
Karon

I've heard that tattoo patterns can make good quilling templates, too. You could just Google "cat tattoo patterns" for example - but I haven't done it myself.

Karon, I use wax paper for the same thing and just slide my pattern underneath. Eventually it gets full of pin holes, but I either get the pic photocopied first or it's in my computer and I can just reprint for another time. Smile I have a bunch of guitars on there! Just type "guitars" into your browser and you'll get a bunch of catalogues of guitars for sale. I just picked some attractive ones and printed them up. The pic helps especially with proportions... like how on a bass guitar, the strings go all the way to the bottom of the instrument for instance. Have fun! Smile
