Quilling - Birds in love

Managed a very quick picture in quilling. The entire picture is quilled in the manner of my tutorial, on a quick and easy way to quill a sprig of leaves making your own tool. Check out tutorial on You Tube. I am really enjoying this method as the projects are quicker to complete. Happy quilling & have fun :)
Will be back with a new tutorial soon

Quick and easy way to quilling a sprig of leaves with your home made tool

After I posted my tutorial on how to make a sprig of leaves with a comb, I had many emails from quillers, who could not find a comb like the one I used. I did a lot of experiment  & came up with a very simple tool that you can make at home and turn out even nicer sprigs very quickly & pretty neat too. All you need is three needles or dot pins with the head chipped off and an eraser. The space between should be even. With experience you could create lots & lots of designs to add to your bouquets, sprigs and flowers to fill in .I have created many designs with just this one tool. It's all imagination & creativity. My jungle fowl project is created with this design only.

Quilled Jungle Fowl = The National bird of Sri Lanka

It's nice to be blogging again after a long time. Sometimes we feel that nothing is quite interesting in life and spend our precious time watching the idiot box. I feel that is the most appropriate name for the TV. I have been doing this for the last month or two not being in a mood for hobbies. Now I am back with my first project for 2014 & hopefully create more new designs in quilling.

As with other junglefowl, the Sri Lankan Junglefowl is strongly sexually dimorphic: the male is much larger than the female, with more vivid plumage and a highly exaggerated wattle and comb.
The male Sri Lankan Junglefowl ranges from 66–72 cm (26–28 in) in length[3] and 790–1,140 g (1.74–2.51 lb) in weight, essentially resembling a large, muscular rooster.[4] The male has orange-red body plumage, and dark purple to black wings and tail. The feathers of the mane descending from head to base of spine are golden, and the face has bare red skin and wattles. The comb is red with a yellow centre. As with the Green Junglefowl, the cock does not possess an eclipse plumage.
The female is much smaller, at only 35 cm (14 in) in length and 510–645 g (1.124–1.422 lb) in weight, with dull brown plumage with white patterning on the lower belly and breast, ideal camouflage for a nesting bird.[4]
The Sri Lankan Junglefowl is most closely related to the Grey Junglefowl,[5] though physically the male resembles the Red Junglefowl. Female Sri Lanka Junglefowl are very similar to those of the Grey Junglefowl. Like the Green Junglefowl, Sri Lankan Junglefowl are island species that have evolved side by side with their similarly stranded island predators and competitors. Uniquely complex anti-predator behaviors and foraging strategies are integral components in the long evolutionary story of the Sri Lankan Junglefowl.
Hope you like it and will be back soon with another creation. Happy quilling till then :)
