Quilled Tree Landscape Picture Art - One Tree Hill

Finished my quilled tree landscape picture at last. I have used many techniques for this one. The tree top is made of honeycomb circles ( beehive technique). The grass is created from folding zig-zag. The yellow and pink hills are my own creations. I just folded the paper up & down and encircled it just like the grass but without pinching the the top and bottom so that I got a circle with something like a peace sign after encircling it.

The tree trunk is graphic quilling technique, using brown yellow and black. I have used a combination of orange, 3 shades of yellow and peach for the treetop. I cut the strips to 1.5' lengths and then pasted them randomly into one long strip and quilled the honeycomb circles ( beehive method- check my link section).

The dark green and yellow hills are made from crimped paper. Folded zigzag to the length required and encircled.

The flowers are a combination of roses quilled with 3mm strip and star flowers of yellow with tight coil centres. For the blue flowers I  used a scallop pinking scissor to cut 4mm length pieces blue 3mm strip and pasted it to a fringed flower made of 1.23" length 3mm strip. I fringed the 3mm strip slightly to get a velvety middle.

The tree is mounted at a slightly higher elevation as the root section is pasted on top of the grass and I pasted tight coils to the underside of the tree top in order to get the 3d effect, hence the shadow of the tree is visible.

All in all I am really thrilled with the outcome.  Tutorial for quilling landscape is available here.
