For my dear Friend.

Hallo and Happy New Year to everyone!

This time something different, following a large amount of Christmas cards (not necessary a material for a post – maybe in the future)  I’ve decided to create something for my friend since her birthday also happened in December.

What we have here is a challenge to bond many different elements into one solid shape. It all relates to my friend’s interests.
It took me a quite a long time to put together the ideas and prepare the sketch, but at this scale this step is a must – also picking right colours is essential.

As the main shape, I have chosen the Trinity Celtic Symbol, aka the Triquetra and inside of it, decided to fit all the important elements.

I wanted to make it very colourful so that I have used quilling strips (3mm) in all sorts of colours trying to grasp the meaning of the element. For example, the brown Triquetra symbol as it is down-to-earth colour and it relates to security, protection and comfort.

All the work was made with the same quilling technics that I have used before in my other projects such as the Moon in the Good night sleep tight post.

So there it is, hope you will like it!

  1. So much detail. It’s lovely. I of course especially like the music staff and the airplane is fantastic….That’s what I need to work on. Putting several details together. You said you did a sketch…a hand drawn sketch on paper?
