Quilled Stylistic White Crane

In the Fall of 2014, I bought the single-most influential quilling book I’ve owned – even to this day. One of the projects inside was this Quilled Stylistic White Crane. I will write a more formal critique of the book in another post, but for now, let’s just say that I love the book and loved the projects and probably more importantly, loved the way it opened my mind to shapes and forms.

Quilled Stylistic White Crane

Construction

This crane is 8.5″ x 11″ (yup… back in the day I wasn’t thinking about framing things and using appropriately sized backgrounds). It is made with 1/8″ standard weight quilling strips.

As I said earlier, this project was one in the Paper Quilling Chinese Style Book that I love so much. There are no measurements given in the book, so it’s kind of a guess as you go process. In this case, I did not get the proportions exact because it was so difficult to size the rainbow loops and harps. But… it conveys the effect I wanted which was a sort of stylistic, painted crane. If you want to learn more about these techniques, I would highly suggest buying the book. It is well worth the cost! I have embedded the Amazon link below, but if you are anti-Amazon, feel free to look for it on other websites.
