Papilio Machaon, quilled version

Hello dear friends,

Today was a sunny, warm day, a real spring day. So, I decided to share with you my quilled version of Papilio Machaon butterfly. I made it like a birthday gift for a very special friend who loves nature very much. 

I searched trough a lot of pictures with this butterfly on Google and took me more than a week to decide how I will shape it from paper :)

This was my guide picture and you can find it on Flickriver here.

Choosing the most appropriate colors was another challenge, but not so hard like deciding how to start my paper project. And here it is, my Papilio Machaon.

I just love butterflies! They look so fragile, but are so beautiful and make our summer 
days a lot more sunnier.

A lovely creature deserves a frame, a frame which will show even better the vibrant colors.

For the frame I used Dana's tutorial,
 changing the sizes for a square frame.

I would like to enter my paper project for the March UnstampaBelles Challenge, with the harmony or/and peace theme.

Hope you had a nice journey through a sunny summer day with my quilled butterfly.

Wish you a wonderful day!

  1. This. Is. Amazing! What a beautiful butterfly and a lucky friend indeed. And the frame is so good as well - tucked that one away for future reference! Thank you for joining us for our March challenge and we hope to see you back soon for future challenges at Unstampabelles!

  2. Amazing work! I am curious how big it is and how long did it take you to make it.

  3. Cool! realistic, bright, precise! way to go!


Thank you for the moments you spent visiting and for leaving a trace in words! Kiddo
