Week Fifteen: Goddess

Years ago, when I had only been quilling for a few months I made a card with a girls face in profile. I did it on a black card, and she just had simple curly hair that was rainbow coloured using two tone quilling paper (side note, two tone quilling paper is hard to find these days!). I thought I'd reprise this sort of design but update it with my new skills and add in a bit of a theme.


For some reason, we'll call it inspiration, I decided she should be entirely made of shades of purple and teal, and the whole 'Goddess' idea just came to me as I went. I put all sorts of fun shapes through her hair; my favourite is the feather.



I love her little grin and her cute nose - it reminds me of Samantha from Bewitched. I imagine this goddess could twitch her nose and make a cool breeze blow or the moon shine brighter.




..maybe she's my muse...



As we're headed for Autumn, next week's project is going to celebrate that!
