They say that practice makes perfect. I'm not there yet. But it's ok because I have fun practicing. I made a couple of cards just for fun the other day.
Here's one with a close up of the quilled pieces blended together in one picture.
Let me tell you, that hummingbird was a real treat. That sucker has some really, and I mean REALLY small pieces. He's far from perfect but I couldn't just throw him away so I plopped him on a card. The other bird is supposed to have one of those little google eyes on it but I didn't have any so he didn't get one. Although I noticed after I glued him down that there is a little speck of white on the picture underneath him so my story is that I purposely placed him there so that the speck could serve as his eye. Yep that's my story and I'm sticking to it.
