This 3D quilling of a garden pond was an "under 14's" prize-winner at the 1999 AGM of the Quilling Guild. It is about 17cm across and 10 cm high - and was made by our daughter Bryony :-)

The quilled peacock - which won the Rose Bowl for the most interesting quilling at the Quilling Guild's Exhibition in 2000 - is an interpretation of a papercutting by Elzbieta Kaleta. This style of papercutting originates in Poland and is known as a Polish gwiazda (or star) design, in the Lowicz style.
Bryony's pond -

Celtic Design - the Goose motif found on Iona...similar to a design used with a calligraphy project shown in Quilling Gallery 2. The goose logo is the copyright of the Iona Community - visit them at www.iona.org.uk. Also, you can visit their bookshop at the Wild Goose Publications' website.
Two quick-to-make badges (called "buttons" in the US, I think) on a celtic theme...they are entirly quilled, including the "base" disc.
(Repeated on Galleries 1 & 2) I use ordinary PVA glue (Marvin Medium), and used to use a wooden cocktail stick to apply it to the edges of the strips - until I found a brilliant glue dispenser designed by a former chairperson of the Quilling Guild. E-mail her at AnnePeak@aol.com for information. All papers used for these projects were supplied by JJ Quilling Design.
NB: No quilling tools used here - finger-rolling only !
