Quilled Shreenathji frame
I am super excited today as i won my first candy today :) Never been so lucky, thanx to Colour Conceptions for the yummy candy !!
I am gonna showcase my entry for 2nd week at Adhiraacreations.
This is a Shreenathji frame I have made for my mom.
I sketched it myself and coloured it using dry crayons.The main technique I have used here is paper quilling as required by the contest. I prefer cutting quilling strips on my own from the tinted papers as it has more colour variations and they are thick and stiff to use, which helps in retaining the shapes.
I tried using golden glitter paper for the jewellery but somehow it gave a gaudy look to the whole mate finish so replaced it with golden brown. I have given quite a lot of detailing to the border as well as u can see in the picture. The jewellery has a very delicate and intricate design.
The Saffan (head cover) of the portrait has paisley designs which gives it an Indian look.
Few close ups. I really love making a peacock feather with paper quilling,,i have kept it a little simple here.
