Incredible India!

Good Afternoon!

And thank you all for leaving such encouraging comments on my last post.

Today I am back to share some quilling..

Here is the sneak peak..

Incredible India

I have quilled a Tricolour bird using the colors of our national flag. Our national flag was designed by Pingali Venkayya. In the centre was a traditional spinning wheel, symbolising Gandhi's goal of making Indians self-reliant by fabricating their own clothing. The design was then modified to include a white stripe in the centre for other religious communities, and provide a background for the spinning wheel. Subsequently, saffron, white and green were chosen for the three bands, representing courage and sacrifice, peace and truth, and faith and chivalry respectively.

For making this I first downloaded an image from google and copied the outline on a white paper with few changes.Then I quilled on the outline just like we do quillography using 5 mm quilling strips.(For those who are interested in quillography can check out this beautiful tutorial). The inside is filled using beehive technique on 3 mm quilling strips. Then I wrote India and cut out the word. It was quilled on just like the Tricolored bird above). and finally I arranged them in a handmade shadow box.

Here are a few shots taken during the process-
