I’ve dabbled in paper quilling but I don’t have the patience to do much with the tiny twirled results. But Lisa Nilsson makes spectacular art works using the technique.
This work, which took her six years to create (!) is an amazing work of art. You have to see some of the details to appreciate what she’s done:
I came across this piece on Colossal https://www.thisiscolossal.com/2022/05/lisa-nilsson-grand-jardin/ today. It’s worth taking a moment to read about Nilsson’s work.
I’ve filled in the upper right corner, but I’ve run into another issue – my strips aren’t long enough to extend along the diagonal!
So what can I do? I decided to bring the dark blue into the top and use it to fill the left corner so I can bring the strips further down on the right side.
I have to say I don’t like the points, although I’m sure I wouldn’t have liked straight joins either. It’s a matter of just carrying on and seeing what happens.
Stopping for now.
