IQCG # 30 - Under the Sea

Hello everyone,

Long time since I blogged. Well, I might have take a few more days off if it wasn't for the IQCG # 30 DT post. This month at IQCG we have 'Under the Sea' challenge running.

Here is my inspiration,

I utterly enjoyed quilling this little fish. Fortunately, I had some beautiful pattern paper that I could use for the background.

I started off quilling the coils in pink and golden 3mm strips using an eccentric board for uniformity. I have these coils in 2 sizes which I have used as scales. I then made the scrolls for the fins. Finally, put it all together in a quilled circle.

Well, I hope everyone like this and would love to have some feedback.
