Quilled Unicorn by plushunicorn Quilled Unicorn by plushunicorn
Quilling is some sort of British folk art that nobody but a teacher would care about. It's taking little strips of paper (in this case) and rolling them up and pasting it down. I actually like the result but it took 20+ HOURS! My fingers tingle too. I never want to do something like this again. The sheer time spent on it just isn't worth it. Technically This isn't a 'true' quilling either acording to my teacher because the stars and the moon and the hair isn't rolled paper, It's individual strips manipulated into a shape...

I don't feel good...

Your Teacher is absolutely incorrect, I taught myself how to quill! And every instruction book I have ever read shows quilling isn't all about rolling. I am wanting to do a unicorn for my niece who is 5. And in even in books yours is the absolutely the best I have ever seen. Congratulations! I would love to see you attempt the plush one in quilling despite what your teacher thinks. Art is in the eye of the beholder!

Who cares if it's not "true" what ever the heck it's called? As long as you tried it that's all that counts. I think it turned out great ^^
We just did a project in class with water colors. And we were supposed to do popart of a desert. Well, I made a little bat sit on a cake with a cherry on his head and it pretty much was pop art 'cept for the bat. So I got a D on the friggan thing. T T
